Do you have what it takes to become a deep space colonist? An alien frontier awaits the daring and brave! This new planet will be harsh, but if you have the skills to manage your resources, make a fleet, research alien life, and settle colonies, the world can be yours.
Alien Frontiers is a game of planetary development and resource management for two to four players. During the game you will utilize orbital facilities and alien technology to make colony domes in strategic locations to control the newly discovered world.
The game board shows the planet, its satellites, the stations in orbit around the planet, and the solar system’s star. The dice you are given at the beginning of the game represent the spaceships in your fleet. You will assign these ships to orbital facilities in order to earn resources, expand your fleet, and colonize the planet.
As the game progresses, you will place your colony tokens on the planet to symbolize the amount of control you have over each territory. Those territories exert influence over specific orbital facilities and, if you control a territory, you are able to utilize that influence to your advantage.
The planet was once home to an alien race and they left behind a wondrous artifact in orbit. Using your fleet to explore the artifact, you will find amazing alien technologies that you can use to advance your cause.
Winning the game will require careful consideration as you manage your fleet assignment, integrate the alien technology and territory influences into your expansion plans, and block your opponents from building colonies of their own. Do you have what it takes to take over an alien frontier?
Roll and place your dice to gain advantages over your opponent and keep them out of useful areas of the board. Use Alien Tech cards to adjust your dice rolls and territory bonuses to break the rules. Steal resources, conquer territories, and do whatever it takes to get your colonies on the map first! Don't think it'll be easy, though, because the other players will be trying to do the same thing.
