I confess to being baffled by the turn key provided with this game,in the review by "deepfriedhappymice" in the New Rules Directory it states "a rating of 3 allows a ship to make a 90 degree turn" All ships have this rating btw. When I fiddle with this key a rating of 3 always ends up with a 180 degree turn! no matter which way I place the key. Now it may well be me being a thicko but if there are any players of this game out there pleease help me out. Thanks.

As I recall, the turn key has 3 angles round its edges for turn 1,2, 3.
The angle for turn 3 is 90 degrees.
Put the turn key against the side of the ship, pivot the ship; the turn key stops you pivoting it more than 90 degrees.

All ships start at turn 3, but damage can reduce that.

Thanks Dexter Ward, I've clicked at last, been looking at it quite wrongly! Matt.
