|Invasion From Outer Space, The Martian Game
||Game by Jason C. Hill
During the Move Martians Phase, each Martian Soldier may move up to one space. They have no facing and may move in any direction, including diagonally.
|Martian Packs – Martians like to move around the board in packs as they get extra benefits from staying together. There may never be more than 3 Martian Soldiers total in a space. All of the Martian Soldiers in a space are considered a single Martian Pack and if there are 3 Martian Soldiers in the space, it is called a full Martian Pack.
There are three things that prevent a Martian from moving into a space:
- Martians may not move through Walls, they must go around them. They can however move through a Wall using a Door (the openings cut into the Walls). Martians may NOT move diagonally through a Door, they must go straight through.
- A Martian may not enter a space if it already contains a full Martian Pack (3 Martians). This even includes if they are just passing through the space and not ending there. You can never have more than 3 Martian Soldiers in a space at any time. There are some exceptions to this with Martian Champions, but those are covered later.
- And lastly, if a Martian is in a space with a Hero, the Martian may NOT move away from that space. They are locked in the space with the Hero.
