Product Description


To play the Cosmic Encounter board game you need a minimum of 3 players and up to 5 or more. The best amount of players for this game is 5. The premise of the game is for the alien race called Cosmos that wants to control the whole universe. For this, they have to alliances with other races. 

The players become the political leaders of the alien races. They're supposed to create 5 colonies as fast as possible on the home worlds of other aliens, or players in this case. The way to achieve this goal doesn't matter. It can be through: 

  • force
  • diplomacy

The colonies can be on a single planet or on different planets. Since the players can become allies, the game can have more winners, not just one.

Build a galactic empire...

In the depths of space, the alien races of the Cosmos vie with each other for control of the universe. Alliances form and shift from moment to moment, while cataclysmic battles send starships screaming into the warp.

This classic game of alien politics returns from the warp once more!

In Cosmic Encounter, each player becomes the leader of one of dozens of alien races, each with its own unique power. On a player's turn, he or she becomes the offense. The offense encounters another player on a planet by moving a group of his or her ships through the hyperspace gate to that planet. Both sides can invite allies and play cards to try and tip the encounter in their favor

The object of the game is to establish colonies in other players' planetary systems. The winner(s) are the first player(s) to have five colonies on any planets outside his or her home system. These colonies may all be in one system or scattered over multiple systems. The players must use force, cunning, and diplomacy to ensure their victory. And, because alliances are a key part of the game, multiple players can win together!
