1. Place the board in the middle of the table.
2. Place a white marker on the 0 space of the Morale track on the board. Place a black marker on the topmost space of the Weapon level track (level 0).
3. Decide which scenario to play. Scenario 1 (‘Castaways’) is recommended for your first game. Place the chosen scenario sheet next to the board and return the unused ones to the box.
4. Place the round marker on the first space of the round track on the scenario sheet (except for scenario 7, which has no round track).
