Game Overview

Galactic Warlords: Battle for Dominion is a game of tactical deployment and planet control for 1-4 players. In this game, you play as one of the Warlords, with purpose to establish your dominion over the contested galactic region that was known as the Preiakka Federation, and score the most points at the end of the game. You will do this by playing your hired Mercenaries represented by cards from your hand in your Command Area. Each of the Mercenaries will come with their own units such as Troops, Tanks and Aircraft and actions such as Deploy, Recon, Assassinate and others. By using these units and actions, you will be able to assert control over the planets in the galaxy and gain Power throughout the game. At the end of the game, you will gain additional Power for completing Missions of the Mercenaries you have played during the game as well as gain Power from gaining reputation. Whoever has the most Power at the end of the game is titled the Galactic Warlord and winner of the game!

Hire and play experienced mercenaries!

Each turn, you will play one of your hired (drafted) Mercenary Card next to another in your command area and gain the number of units shown on the bottom left on the card (Infantry units), and put those units in your base.

Establish control of the planets

Play the actions of the Mercenaries to gain power by deploying units on the planets, or gain reputation by invading planets.

Protect your mercenaries!

Place your Infantry units on the matching half-circles to protect your mercenaries from actions such as Assassination, as well as play out their special skill actions!

Keep unit efficiency

After using some of your units for actions or deployment, you will not be able to use them for several turns, so manage your unit pool well to play more efficiently! Units are only available for use when they are in the Launch Pad space in your Base!

Mercenary Missions

Finally, at the end of the game, you will gain additional Power from fulfilling the missions of your mercenary cards. You will score 2 additional power for each planet that you control that matches your mercenary mission symbol, so keep this in mind in order to score as much as you can at the end of the game! After calculating, the player with the most power is the Galactic Warlords and the winner!
