What happens if a player runs out of Stargate markers?
Can he/she use another color?
Yes, having the need for additional pieces beyond
what is provided might happen in a 2 or 3 player
game and then you would have the different colors
I just need clarification on combat unit stacking
limits. If I have a stargate AND a ship in the same
space, can I have 2 on the ship AND 2 on the gate,
for a total of four units? I, of course, assume
that if that ship with troops is destroyed, that
troops go away?
A: That is correct on both questions
Q: What are the "icon" symbols
on the star systems and Sectors?
A: The symbols are stargate glyphs that are used
with numbers for identification of the star systems
and assist the player in knowing all the star systems
in a Sector and add the flavor of the TV series
- Stargate SG-1. See the attached stargate
glyph table to translate to English.
Building & Placement
Q: How come you can "Place your starships
on any space in the Sector" on Page 2 of the
Rules but you "may not build onto a space with
no star system" on Page 4?
A: "Place your starships on any space in the
Sector" is correct during the initial placement
of the starships (Page 2). It is only when you "build
and place" your starships later in the game
that you "may not build onto a space with no
star system." (Page 4)
Q: During the building phase, 5 combat units
can be exchanged for 1 starship. Can these combat
units come from existing units or a combination
of new and existing combat units, or is the swap
made solely from new units as yet unplaced?
A: Only from new units as yet unplaced.
Q: The rules state that you get a card for
each NEW base you place during that turn. By new
does it mean A) a base that is totally new to that
system and not having had ANY base belonging to
any player there previously, or B) new to the player's
control and could have come from either an entirely
new system or a system that was taken over from
A: The answer is (B).
Q: Does a ship need at least one combat
unit on board for it to move, or can it move without
A: A ship can move without any combat units on board.
Q: If a ship can move without units and
it lands in an unoccupied star system, can it then
place a stargate on that star system?
A: Yes, it can and it can land on a star system
with a stargate base on it with no defending starships
and/or combat units and take that stargate base
off and repace it with it's own.
Q: Can you move onto and take several star
systems in one turn with one starship?
A: No, once you move onto and take a star system
and/or replace an enemy stargate base with one of
your own, that ship and/or combat unit must remain
there until the next turn.
Q: In one movement phase can a ship stop
at a star system to pick up combat units and then
continue movement from that space?
A: Yes, that is allowed all in one movement phase.
The ship does not have to wait until next turn to
Stargate SG-1 Cards -
Q: Can cards be played at any time, during
any of the phases, or are they to be played only
in a specific phase. If so when?
A: Cards are only played during the movement phase
with the exception of the Iris card which may be
Q: When you use a card to stargate combat
troops up to an enemy ship that contains no combat
troops, the ship is taken over and converted. Does
this occur in the combat phase or does it happen
immediately (e.g. - the newly captured ship can
then move and/or attack in the same turn)?
A: Immediately, so the captured ship can then move
and/or attack in the same turn.
Q: The SG cards that allow you to destroy
or place combat units on a ship that is on the same
space as an enemy stargate. Can those be played
out of turn or ONLY on your turn?
A: Only on your turn with the exception of the Iris
card which is played when another is trying to gain
access through your stargate.
Q: Can you play any and all your "Stargate
Cards" during any one turn?
Q: If a ship with two troops is on a space
with a friendly stargate and the ship is destroyed
in combat can the combat units land on the stargate
or are they gone with the ship?
A: If they are designated to be on the ship they
When a ship enters an unclaimed star system and
establishes a stargate, can the ship also make an
attack on an adjacent ship or is its "attack'
to establish the base?
No, it may go on to attack an adjacent ship.
