Game Map - Planetary empires is played on a tile map, before the game begins players roll 2D6, the player with the highest roll places the first building. The player to that persons left then places a building, this continues until all the buildings are placed. The player who lays down the last building is the first player to place their flag claiming their piece of territory. Then the player to that persons right places a flag, this continues until each tile has been claimed.
No building may be placed in a tile next to a Hive city tile
Fighting Battles - The player with the least amount of tiles is the first to challenge another player to a battle. This continues until all players have been paired up.
If there are an odd number of players then after everyone else has paired up for battle then the odd player out may challenge any player, this will mean that one player will end up playing 2 games.
Players with bonus points due to manufactorum’s and facing opponents with extra tiles may spend their extra points to add to their existing army.
Conquest - After a game players may attempt to capture a tile to expand their territory. They do this by rolling 2D6 and scoring 3+ if the tile is adjacent to their territory or a 7+ if it is not.
