This play test event will be dedicated to:
As part of competing fleets charged with colonizing and controlling the new world, your job is not going to be an easy one. You'll need to use the resources at hand in the new solar system to build up fuel and ore reserves, and you'll use those reserves to construct colonies and spaceships to help you tame the planet. The alien artifact in orbit around the planet is likely to provide a wealth of alien technologies that allow you to manipulate space/time and the laws of physics...but at what cost? And, as you spread out across the planet, you'll find that controlling certain territory gives you useful advantages, but wherever you turn you'll be faced with ruthless opportunist seeking to out maneuver you. Your fleet needs to succeed here or you'll be looking for a new career in orbital trash collection. Now, get out there and conquer the Alien Frontier!
Alien Frontiers is a euro-style game. It has resource management, an interesting dice mechanic for assigning your fleet of rocket ships to work in different orbital facilities, and a colony-building race to control the territories on the alien planet.
A typical game takes 60 to 90 minutes so expect to spend about 4 hours to play the game three times -- once to get you familiar with it, once to let you play for fun, and once to see if you can break it and find any bugs that need to be stomped.
Afterward there will be a little bit of a debriefing as we all sit and talk about the game, your experience playing it, and your ideas to make it better. And let me say that we do take your opinions seriously. The next time you attend an event you're likely to see that some of the suggestions you and other players made have been incorporated and are ready to test out.
