Declare Heading step when starting on a surface city or spaceport (Standard Game)

3 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

The Standard Game rules state that you do not have to declare a heading when you start your turn on a surface city or spaceport (unlike the Classic rules). Does this mean that you are essentially choosing your heading/direction after you set you speed, once you begin to move, allowing to pick whatever direction works best with the MPs you have available? 

Thanks!

ds.

Yes, that's my understanding.

 

Note that this (mainly) only matters only for spaceports, because almost all cities only have one direction to go as the first step anyway. In fact, I think that with the classic rules, cities have one advantage over spaceports in that you effectively don't need to declare your heading -- you come to a fork immediately after lifting off from a city and are free to move left or right. I like the Standard game rule that makes spaceports also have this advantage by not requiring declaring direction on spaceports
