CBS Games had a contest with this game.
You had to find the secret word, HELIOS
(which is the Greek word for
‘sun’), then send in an
entry form to enter. The word was a
hint to an upcoming “surprise” from CBS (future game?).
Each letter was given after completing a round; when you completed six
you had the whole word. It’s
unknown what happened with this contest.
The rack # rolls at 100. The
maximum number of reserve ships shown on-screen is 4.
The score rolls at 1 million.
