"Cosmic Encounter Overview"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is so amazingly fun, it’s a game of persuading and dealing with other players. Watch out your closest friends might back stab you-. Cosmic Encounters is so intense and can become hillarious when you pull off a total backstab---, everyone just has a laugh. Not only is it super fun and easy to pick up, there is so much replay. Core game comes with fifty aliens all with unique abilities which dramaticaly bend the rules and create mayhem it’s so amazing, two games are never the same. Also there is six expansions creating so much more new wicked scenarios and added in new gameplay mechanics, the game is just perfect. Buy this game if you want to mess with your buddies and have blast while conquering planets is a dominant Alien!

Only played it 4 or 5 times so far but the games have been awesome. 50 different aliens with unique abilities keep it interesting. Recommended for all board game buffs.

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.

Players choose from dozens of alien races, each with its own unique power to further its efforts to build an empire that spans the galaxy. Many classic aliens from earlier editions of this beloved game return, such as the Oracle, the Loser, and the Clone. Newly discovered aliens also join the fray, including Remora, Mite, and Tick-Tock.

This classic game of alien politics returns from the warp once more. It features 50 alien races, flare cards to boost their powers, 100 plastic ships, a host of premium components, and all-new tech cards that let players research and build extraordinary technological marvels!

No two games are the same!
