Rule Edit

All measurement are made with the range ruler. The ruler is 1' long. It has two sides: the range side and the distance side.

The range side is divided into three range bands: close, medium, and long.

The distance side is divided into five distance bands labeled “1” through “5.” Rangeruler distance

  • The bottom of the ruler is the edge at the close-range end of the ruler.
  • When measuring with the range ruler, use only a single edge of the ruler; do not factor in the width and thickness of the ruler.
  • The lines on the ruler that divide two adjacent bands always count as part of the band closest to the bottom of the ruler.
  • The following terms are used when discussing range and distance:
  1. At: If any portion of a hull zone, base, or token is inside a specified band, that component is at that band.
  2. Beyond: If no portion of a hull zone, base, or token is inside a specified band or a band closer to the bottom of the ruler, that component is beyond the specified band.
  3. Within: If the entirety of a base or token is inside a specified band, that component is within that band.
  4. Minimum–Maximum: This abbreviation encompasses the minimum band, maximum band, and all bands in-between, such as “distance 1–4.”
  • Players can measure with either side of the range ruler at any time.
