Space Game is a card game that puts players into the role of a leader of a dystopic future society, where they compete to create the greatest empire in the galaxy. You must choose which path to take for glory and victory. Explore new sectors with great daring to find and bring new planets into your empire. Gain bountiful resources or control routes for trade. Build a powerful military to protect your interests from outlaws. Discover and control hallowed religious sites to gain followers and their ancient relics. Gain an edge over your opponents with advanced machines. Enlist heroic commanders of epic renown and send them on special missions. Most importantly, prove your supremacy in the universe with unique and grand achievements. Space Game will not only test your strategy, but your luck as well.
In Space Game, players take turns exploring and acquiring cards from the deck. During exploration, a player may reveal up to 3 cards, but each turn of fate comes with the risk of misfortune as well as the possibility of glory. After exploration, players choose a card in play that they wish to acquire as part of their empire, provided they meet the resource requirements. Ten different card types provide many avenues for expansion, but be warned that anything you leave on the table is up for grabs for competing empire builders. As the supply of cards builds, duplicate cards of the same type accumulate in the Threshold zone, which acts as a ticking time bomb before the whole board busts. The unfortunate busting player loses their turn, and exploration resumes in another new and fresh galaxy. At the end of the game, players total up the Victory point values of the cards they acquired to determine the winner.
