Ties – When a dilemma specifies a superlative such as “strongest,” “most CUNNING,” or “highest total attributes,” and there is a tie, the opponent of the player encountering the dilemma gets to choose (unless the dilemma states otherwise). See selections.
To determine such things as “nearest planet” and “far end of spaceline,” compare the number of cards in each direction; if there is a tie, then compare the total span in each direction. If still a tie, the opponent chooses.
