Creating the Game Board
These are Steve's System tiles. Included are the 8 random tiles and his Home System tile.
Steve has a bunch of double-planet systems. Also, 6 of the planets have technology specialties. That's great news because one of his 2-point Secret Objectives is to control 6 planets with technology specialties. If he places those systems in easy reach, the objective is easier to accomplish.
The two Wormhole systems do not connect to each other. Steve's best choice is to probably play those away from systems he has interest in.
