Build your galactic empire in Cosmic Encounter 42nd Anniversary Edition! In this game of interstellar exploration, conflict and negotiation, 3-5 players lead their alien species as they colonize foreign planets. But each planet is ruled by someone, and the only way to grow your civilization is through diplomacy or war. Create your alliances, defeat your enemies, and ensure your species’ supremacy! Focus on diplomacy and alliances makes a unique social competitive gameplay. A new species joins the classic alien lineup to make sure no two games are ever the same. Cosmic Combinations increase game customization with themed matches for any number of players.
