Something to watch out for that I missed the first time I read the rules is that you can only build pieces of a color that you already have in the system. For instance, if you have only a green piece in a system, you can only build green pieces. If you have a yellow and red piece in a system with a green star, then you can only build yellow or red pieces in that system. I'm not sure how I missed it, since it's stated pretty unambiguously, but I played the first few games without that rule and the game was much less interesting.
I made the same mistake in my first few games, so don't feel bad that you missed it. Going back, yeah, I felt like an idiot too for not seeing it the first time even though it's plain as day. Perhaps some emphasis is in order on the rules pages. -- - |) () /\/ And as far as SDG goes, I'm up to go against anyone who cares to play. Just challenge dsheldon.
