Cosmic Encounter is a remake of a classic board game about aliens with super powers trying to populate the galaxy. (29:37)
Cosmic Encounter originally came out in the late 1970′s and has been released several times since then. This is the newest release, and Fantasy Flight has done a great job. This is a light space conquest game where the basic rules are simple, but each player has the ability to break the rules. This, on top of “take that” card play, leads to a chaotic game where players are trying to establish bases all over the galaxy.
