You are an astronaut in the future competing to discover the most valuable planets and biggest star systems in this exciting and delightful game that combines three familiar game mechanics into one elegant retro-60's gaming experience. Strategic tile-placement, point-to-point movement, and clever use of cards enable you to build your own constantly expanding universe on a large-as-space-itself 23-1/2" x 33" game board.
Create and probe new galaxies, position and maneuver space ships and UFOs, build space stations, meet other space explorers, and discover distant planets with strange environments and mysterious life forms. At any time, space pirates, black holes, supernovas, space monsters, and other special action events can help or hinder your efforts to become Lord of the Universe.
Advanced strategy rules, plus variants (solitaire, role play, 9th planet, and team play) are included.
An average game is 60 – 90 minutes (depending on number of players) and leaves everyone wanting to play again and again.
