The youngest player goes first or choose your own method to determine and remember first player. Players take turns rolling and activating a number of dice determined by their empire level. Play continues until one player reaches 21 or more victory points. After that occurs, continue play until the beginning of the starting player’s next turn, when the game ends instead.
On your turn, refer to the empire track on your Galaxy Mat. Take the number of dice specified for your empire’s level and roll them. For example, on the first player’s first turn, they’ll get 4 dice and 2 ships. The dice you roll determine the actions you may take that turn. You may activate the dice in any order you wish. You do not have to activate all of the dice during your turn.
