Space — the final junkyard. Good thing one planet's trash is another
planet's treasure! In Junk Orbit, you're captain of your own scavenger
ship, picking up space junk and transporting it to any city that will
take it. Launch your junk ... uh, *cargo* ... out of your airlock to
propel your ship! Race to deliver your cargo as you navigate the orbits
of nearby planets and moons! It's astrodynamics for fun and profit! On
your turn, carry out these three steps:
1. Launch junk — Choose any one junk tile in your cargo hold and move it
away from your ship (clockwise or counter-clockwise, your choice) a
number of spaces equal to its numeric value. If it reaches its
destination city this way, you have made a remote delivery. Otherwise,
it simply comes to rest after moving its full distance. It is also
possible to hit an enemy ship with launched junk, causing that opponent
to discard one junk tile from their cargo.
2. Move ship — Your ship must now move the same distance that your
launched junk did, but in the opposite direction. When your ship reaches
a transfer point between location boards, you may choose to switch
orbits. If you do, your ship changes direction (from clockwise to
counter-clockwise, or vice versa) as it enters the new orbit. If the
space your ship lands on is the destination of any junk in your cargo,
you have made a direct delivery.
3. Pick up junk — After moving your ship, pick up all junk tiles present
in your current city, adding them to your cargo hold. Then, refill your
current city with one new junk tile from the corresponding stack (e.g.,
if at a Mars city, refill from the Mars stack).
Each player has their own ship with a unique ship power that breaks the
rules above in some way. The end of the game is triggered when a city
cannot be refilled because its stack is empty. When this happens, every
player gets one final turn, then players tally the values from all of
their delivered junk tiles, and whoever has the highest total wins.
