Jumbo Board Games - Cosmic Encounter

Is there anyone out there?

Eons past, your ancestors searched for intelligent life in the black void of space. The search proved fruitless; they were alone. Desolate, they used their technology to send inhabitable planets the seeds of life and waited. Legend says the weight of their solitude was so overwhelming, they faded into nothingness. In their absence, over millions of years, Alien races evolved.

To aid their children, your ancestors left a legacy: a cache of technology and hyperspace gates. Your ancestors meant these gifts to encourage communication and harmony between their children. However, without the guiding touch of their elder hand, neither you nor your Alien brethren knew peace. But you did know war.

Welcome to the Cosmic Age, where the sky isn’t studied for its beauty, but instead watched against invasion. Meanwhile, your own race’s ships seek to colonize your Alien brethren’s planets and gain cosmic supremacy.

Cosmic Encounter is a game of cunning and domination for 3-5 players, playable in 1-2 hours. Players become the leaders of various aliens, struggling against each other for ultimate sovereignty. To ensure victory, your alien race must be the first to have five colonies occupying your opponents’ home planet systems.

Players can choose to become over 50 Alien characters, each with its own unique power and history. Aliens are categorized as beginner, intermediate, and expert to help players determine which Alien will best benefit their experience and personality. Are you part of a genteel race with an aptitude for theft? Or have you broken your back against prolonged oppression and now fight mercilessly, leaving no survivors?

    I really want to play CE, but have some things I need to do. Maybe I'll be able to catch at least one game. I'm taking down my RSVP to free up space.

    I haven't played the game before, but I've downloaded the Rulebook & FAQs, plus I've watched a lot of reviews. So, I shouldn't be too much of a drag!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
