Optional Rule: Path Blocking

Path Blocking with Offensive Screening –

If a ship has declared offensive screening target it may then choose to block the path of that ship.

  • The target cannot move through hexes occupied by the screening ship
  • The target may try to push through and move as normal
  1. The targeted ship must succeed in a ramming check
  2. The screening ship may then make its own ramming check to force the ram against itself and block further movement
  3. If the screening ship fails the ramming check the targeted ship passes unhindered as if it were unblocked
