All phases end when players want to solve. At that time you have to access the application to be able to enter the values ​​that players consider and to have feedback from the Fleet Council.

  1. Phase I
    1. Consists of finding the coordinates of the sector of the universe where we are most likely to find a habitable planet from the necessary ratios.
    2. This phase is the easiest because it is an in-game tutorial for players to assimilate the rules by playing.
    3. Students will be separated into 5 teams, one team for each character.
    4. For each team, students will need to read and understand the character’s analytical capabilities.
