Each player is a space mining Seeker trying to earn the favours of the powerful Intergalactic Merchant Mining Guild. Victory Points (VP) represent the rewards that players get with the Guild thanks to their work on the Forgotten Planet.
The Forgotten Planet is very inhospitable. The ground is corrosive and unstable. To enable miner robots to traverse it, players need to place metal floors on the surface. The floors also allow energy to be captured from the Sun and then to be transmitted from the Bases to the robots, so it’s very important who controls this: without a connection robots will stay where they are and be unable to work.
In order to earn VPs, a player has to extend their area of control as much as possible. Players do that by placing Land tiles around their Base and moving their robots over the tiles. It’s possible to steal control of part of the surface from another player and to build protective walls. VPs are also earned from the control of special mines, selling crystals, and building robots and bases.
