Vapour trails

is a vapour trail card,
join it to the trail above
your launch pad.
Play passes to the next
player.

cards starry side
down on the table.

Space shuffle!
If you turn over a rocket card
which matches the colour of your
launch pad before you have any
vapour trail cards, return the card
face down to the table.
Then mix up the cards, shouting
“Space Shuffle!”
Find a
matching card
and build your
vapour trail.
If you turn over a rocket card
which matches the colour of
another player’s launch pad
before your vapour trail cards
are topped off (see fig. 4) return
the card face down to the table.
Then mix up the cards,
shouting “Space Shuffle!”
Play passes to the next player.

Topping off trails
If you turn
over a rocket
card which
matches
the colour of
your launch
pad and you
have a vapour
trail, use it to
top off your
trail.
If you turn over
a rocket card
which matches
the colour of
another player’s
launch pad after
your vapour trail
has been topped
off, place the
rocket at the top
of that players
trail.
Once a player’s trail has been topped they still turn over cards on their
turn. If they turn over a vapour trail card it must be taken out of play.
If you spin the spinner
and there are no
matching cards left on
the table, play passes to
the next player.

Count up
Play continues until all
players have topped off
their vapour trails.
Each player then counts
the loop-the-loops in
their vapour trail.
Pick a launch
pad and spin
the spinner.

with the most
