Week 38 is HERE, now lets play another new Season 9 Scenario: Acquisition.
In Acquisition, you're batting over two different types of objectives, a TECH COFFIN, which is placed in the center of the table, and two COMMUNICATION ANTENNAS, one on either side of the tech coffin, down the center-line.
ANTENNAS are scored in two ways, first by having them ACTIVATED at the end of the game, which is a simple short skill and a WIP check by a specialist. The second way is to CONTROL them, which requires that you have the only troop in base contact with it. Hackers in this scenario get a +3 bonus to activating the antennas, so don't leave home without one!
The TECH COFFIN is scored by controlling it at the end of the game, with a decent bonus given if you are controlling it with your DataTracker.
Deployment in this scenario is a bit special, each player has a 16" deployment zone, instead of the standard 12". Despite starting close to each other on the board, there is no particular hurry to score objectives immediately. Play it slow, and go for the last turn grab. If your opponent comes running out the gate for the objectives, let them, then tear them apart with short-ranged firepower.
