Join us for COSMIC ENCOUNTER, "the game of infinite possibilities". Conquer the galaxy through a combination of warfare, diplomacy, and treachery. The simple Attack & Negotiate mechanics are augmented by Alien Powers that allow you to BREAK THE RULES in outrageous ways.
Ideally we will run two or more games:
Newcomers will be at home with Alex's set (Avalon Hill's edition from 2000). It supports four players and includes the all the basic rules to get you started.
Experienced players might want to try Rob's set (Fantasy Flight's 2008 edition, with expansions). It takes up to eight players and includes several advanced rules like the Rewards Deck, the Hazards Deck, and Technology.
If other players bring their own sets, we can have additional tables running at the same time.
Cosmic Encounter is one of the most raucous and unpredictable board games around. Come see what all the fuss is about.
There will also be a companion "Let Talk Games" event on Sunday 7/27: http://www.meetup.com/West-Seattle-Board-Games/events/194084482/
