Build a galactic empire...
Space politics the game, but space politics made interesting! Pure fun, and never a dull moment; it's not necessarily about the end but the journey and the twists.
Each player has a unique power and almost every power seems, they probably are, but this inevitably creates an asymmetrical dynamic where bargaining and social interactions fuel the game.
This game keeps you on your toes and seems to have near infinite replayability.
"Cosmic Encounter" has been around for decades and for very good reason. It is a wonderfully fun game designed to damage friendships. In the game, you become an alien overlord of a system of five planets seeking to establish colonies in your oponents' systems. One of the complications - each alien species has a special "super" power that can really upset things. This is a game best played with 3 or more as much of the fun is in the dynamics of developing alliances for attacking and defence. Playing this game was the most fun I have had in years with a boardgame. This is highly recommended and, in my opinion, a fun and awesome game to play. Get it. You and your friends will never regret it!
