Cosmic Encounter - Annual Tournament

We will do this year's tournament in one night as opposed to two weeks as before. This year's prize is a $25 gift certificate from Tribe!

We will set up three sets for the first round of the night. The first round must end by 8:30. The winner and runner-up from each game will go to the six-player final round at 8:30.

We will use all three published expansions, with the following options:

Tech deck - No. Defender rewards deck - Yes. Hazards deck - No. Team play - No.

In the first round, other options are up to the owner of the set you are playing with. (For example, Drey prefers to not use the scoring tokens; Johann prefers not to use the Classic versions of certain flares.) If you have other questions about options, please post.

 

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.

No two games are the same!

    I have more fun losing this game than I have winning most others!

    Congrats to Evan, the Visionary, who could foresee his victory before we even started.

    Note that I have changed the description to make the Tournament a one night event. See you there!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
