    This is my favorite board game of all time! The gist of the game is that each player controls one alien race, each with their own home system of planets. Throughout the game you are trying to establish colonies on planets in other players home systems. How you do this is through having encounters with other players. On these encounters you either try to combat your way onto the planet or work a deal that both parties agree on. The first player(s) to get 5 foreign colonies win. In the game, you can also set up alliances and stuff to help you on your goal. But these alliances will be constantly changing as you set up colonies and be the first player to 5. What really makes this game great though is that each alien race has its own unique special power! This makes to game just one big bundle of chaos as there is fighting, allying, backstabbing, scheming, along with the interaction between the different alien powers in the game. The game is pretty chaotic and can be harsh if you get beaten down, but if you go in with the right mindset that it's going to laughter and chaos, it'll be fun for everyone! The game isn't too hard to teach and new players will get the hang of it after a couple of turns. There is also a great deal of value and replayability in the base game as there are 50 aliens races included. Also has an additional tech card variant included. Not too great with 3 players, 4 works well and 5 is fantastic. A great game that will have you laughing as you scheme your way to 5 colonies!

    Cosmic Encounter is a well loved game and will continue to be loved for many years to come. The games is all about negotiation, diplomacy and war ! The aim of the game is to inhabit other players planets, the first to do this with the correct amount of starships wins. Think it sounds easy? Think again! The other players will gang up on you and make sure you can't get on their planets. They will fight and play dirty to make sure you won't make an alliance with your neighbour, they will do everything they can to make sure you lose. You of course will be doing the same thing to them though. This game is great! There is a reason it has been played by gamers for decades now. Why not find out what all the fuss is about and give it a try? BUY IT!
