An Enemy ship with this icon is shielding all orthogonally adjacent cards. An Enemy ship cannot be destroyed if an adjacent card has a Shield icon.

Play a competitive real-time game! Place the mothership an equal distance away from all players (if possible). All players take all 7 of their ships. No other components are needed.
