HOW TO PLAY

The rules are simple: Each turn a player has to move one of their ships in a straight line, as many spaces (star systems) as they want but they cannot go over systems controlled by other players. After their move, the player has to place a Colony or Trade Station on that system, thus gaining control over it for until the end of the game. The player also immediately scores points equal to the number of planets in that system. When all of the players have placed their Cities and Trade Stations, the game ends and additional points are calculated. The player with the most points is the winner!

With these extremely simple rules, players will get into the game from the very start and they will immediately immerse in the depths of the tactical and strategic choices they will need to make, in order to score more efficiently at the end of the game.

“The game is just fantastic! It’s a lot of fun, it’s light admittedly, it is kind of in that micro-game world, but it is a really, really tough  to win. You’re always going to be challenged as far as to which ship you want to move, where you want to move to and how are you going to do your move to affect your opponent.
