Cosmic Encounter

Who—or what—is out there

Eons ago, your ancestors searched the black void of space for intelligent life. The search proved fruitless; they were alone. Desolate, they used their technology to send the seeds of life to inhabitable planets. They waited, but gradually over the millennia they faded into nothingness. However, over millions of years, alien races slowly evolved.

To aid their children, your ancestors left behind a legacy of advanced technology and hyperspace gates. They meant these gifts to encourage communication and harmony between their children. Now, without the guiding touch of an elder hand, you and your distant alien cousins must learn to communicate, negotiate, and coexist.

Welcome to the Cosmic Age. The open skies of countless worlds are filled with speeding spaceships, and a panoply of alien races is competing to populate the galaxy. In the quest to colonise as many planets as possible, there are as many paths to victory as there are alien races seeking it. Peace, war, negotiation, betrayal—you never know what will happen in the next encounter.

Please note that styles may vary.

Colonise the Galaxy

Cosmic Encounter is a game of interplanetary colonisation and cunning negotiations. Each player takes on the role of the leader of an alien race seeking to colonise as many planets as possible. The first player to colonise five planets in other players’ systems wins. But even planets that are not yet colonised are still defended, and in order to establish a settlement, you’ll need to win over the race that controls that planet—through negotiation, partnership, or war.

The core set includes fifty alien races, each with its own history and powers. You may be the leader of the genteel and thieving Filches, sensitive and oozing Amoebas, sneaky, infesting Parasites, or self-sacrificing Kamikazes. Your powers may enable you to quickly travel through space, prevent your defeated ships from falling into the Warp, or let you to look at another player’s hand before you decide your next move. Each alien has individual strategic tools and a specific play style that shapes all of its encounters.

Make Friends – and Enemies

Destiny decides the location of every attempted colony. It may be in the system of a dire foe or long-term ally. You can ask other players to support you, but be careful! Even your allies have their own agendas. Will their participation mean that they advance, while you struggle behind? Or are you cunning enough to use the alliance for your own benefit?

When all the ships have reached their destination, you may decide whether to fight, negotiate, or morph and mimic whatever your opponent does. Alien powers and Reinforcement, Artifact, and Flare cards can also be played at this time to affect the outcome of the encounter. Finally, you and your opponent resolve the outcome. You may win and get to establish your colony, or you may be defeated and have your ships sent into the Warp. You may win a battle and still lose ships or cards, you may gain more through negotiation than you would have through fighting, or negotiations may fail with dire consequences for both parties.

The Infinite Cosmos

Cosmic Encounter offers you and your fellow aliens several variants for gameplay. Should you desire, a game can be shortened or lengthened by requiring fewer or more colonies. Tech cards can be integrated, which give each player a specific objective. Once accomplished, the Tech card becomes a useful asset that you can use later in the game. Players could also choose to conceal their alien powers until the moment they are used, or rotate which alien races they control and become a new alien every round.

With its numerous alien races, Flare cards, Artifact cards, and gameplay variants, Cosmic Encounter truly offers an infinity of gaming experiences. It is easy-to-learn for younger or less experienced players, but has enough variety and strategic complexity to engross even the most experienced board gamers.

Amass your fleet, form your alliances, and dive into the vast galaxy of this classic game!

Brew your potions by drawing ingrediants from the shared supply bag

Great fun for all ages

English edition

For ages 10+

For 2-4 players

In The Quacks of Quedlinburg, players are charlatans – or quack doctors – each making their own secret brew by adding ingredients one at a time. Take care with what you add, though, for a pinch too much of this or that will spoil the whole mixture!

Each player has their own bag of ingredient chips. During each round, they simultaneously draw chips and add them to their pot. The higher the face value of the drawn chip, the further it is placed in the swirling pattern. Push your luck as far as you can, but if you add too many cherry bombs, your pot explodes!

At the end of each round, players gain victory points and also coins to spend on new ingredients to add to their bags. But players with exploded pots must choose points or coins — not both! The player with the most victory points at the end of nine rounds wins the game.

Suitable for ages 8+

Play time 30-45 minutes

The Best Game of 2018

Azul was the proud winner of the 2018 Spiel des Jahres, the most prestigious prize in board gaming! The award recognises games that are great for players of all ages and levels of experience – and it’s an assurance of fun and quality.

Product description

Azul was designed by the world famous, award winning game author Michael Riesling. Azul captures the beautiful aesthetics of Moorish art in a contemporary board game. Players compete as artisans decorating the walls of the royal Palace of Dvora.

By carefully drafting the correct Quantity and style of tiles, the most clever of artisans plan ahead to maximize the beauty of their work (not to mention their scores!) while ensuring they wasted no supplies in the process. Introduced by the moors, “azulejos” (originally white and blue ceramic tiles) were fully embraced by the Portuguese, when their King Manuel I, on a visit to the Alhambra Palace in Southern Spain, was mesmerized by the stunning beauty of the Moorish decorative tiles.

The King, awestruck by the interior beauty of the Alhambra, immediately ordered that his own Palace in Portugal be decorated with similar wall tiles. As a tile laying artist, you have been challenged to embellish the walls of the royal Palace of Dvora.

Playable in 100 minutes

Dead of Winter:

A Crossroads Game, the first game in this series, puts players in a small, weakened colony of survivors in a world where most of humanity is either dead or diseased, flesh-craving monsters.

Dead of Winter is a meta-cooperative psychological survival game. This means players are working together toward one common victory condition – but for each individual player to achieve victory, he must also complete his personal secret objective.

This secret objective could relate to a psychological tic that’s fairly harmless to most others in the colony, a dangerous obsession that could put the main objective at risk, a desire for sabotage of the main mission, or (worst of all) vengeance against the colony!

Dead of Winter is an experience that can be accomplished only through the medium of tabletop games. It’s a story-centric game about surviving through a harsh winter in an apocalyptic world.

Best Board Games

Each player leads a faction of survivors with dozens of different characters in the game.

Certain games could end with all players winning, some winning and some losing, or all players losing. Work toward the group’s goal, but don’t get walked all over by a loudmouth who’s looking out only for his own interests!

The survivors are all dealing with their own psychological imperatives, but must still find a way to work together to fight off outside threats, resolve crises, find food and supplies, and keep up the colony’s morale.

Dead of Winter has players making frequent, difficult, heavily- thematic, wildly-varying decisions that often have them deciding between what is best for the colony and what is best for themselves.

The game is played over a series of rounds and points are awarded each round. The cards are randomly dealt each round. You could even be the Spy two rounds in a row! After the last round, the player with the most points is the winner.

Spy Fall is an easy-to-learn game of bluffing, clever answers, and suspicion

A great game for ages 13 and up with groups of 3-8 players. Set up is easy and only taking a few seconds. With 30 locations each feature fun original art, making replaying fun and exciting. Advanced modes introduce roles to play for each location.

Walk a mile in the shoes of a spy! Or was it a kilometer in clogs?

SPYFALL is an easy-to-learn card game of bluffing, probing questions, clever answers, and suspicion.

At the start of each round, players receive a secret card letting them know where they are – a casino, space station, pirate ship, circus, (30 unique locations!) – except that one player receives the SPY card instead of the location.

The Spy doesn’t know where he is, but wins the round if he can figure it out before he blows his cover!

Players then start asking each other questions during the intense 8-minute rounds.

Non-Spy players want to ask questions and give answers that prove to the other players that they know where they are.

But watch out! If your questions and answers are too specific, the Spy will easily guess the location and win, so you need to practice a bit of subtlety.

But if your questions and answers are too generic, you might be accused of being the Spy.

The Spy will also sometimes be asked questions (just like any other player would) and have to come up with questions of his own, without knowing anything about where he is!

If you listened carefully to the other players, you’ll be able to come up with a plausible question or answer. hopefully.

Best Board Games – Isle of Skye

 

 

For 2-5 players

45 minute playing time

High replay value

Great strategy game

In Isle of Skye:

Chieftan to King, you take control of your clan and build your kingdom to score as many points as possible.

Lay tiles to grow the landscape of your island. Earn extra coins by connecting barrels back to your castle by roads.

Four scoring tiles are randomly chosen for the game forcing you to adjust your strategy every time you play. Each round, a different combinations of scoring tiles are assessed.

You take three tiles each round. One of them you discard and you put the other two up for auction. You choose the price, but if no one pays, you buy them and add them to your realm.

Collect livestock, construct certain types of buildings, or lay out your landscape tiles in certain patterns. There’s lots of different ways to score points, depending on the scoring tiles that show up.

In Isle of Skye: Chieftain to King, up to five players will work to construct the most valuable kingdom. The richest player at the end of the game is named king of the fabled island.

Product description

Isle of Skye, one of the most beautiful places in the world: Soft sand  beaches, gently sloping hills, impressive  mountains: the landscape of Isle of Skye is breathtaking and fascinates everyone.

 In this tile-laying game 2 to 5 players are the chieftains of 5 famous clans.

The players try to build their little kingdoms to score as many points as possible.

But in each game only 4 of the 16 scoring cards will be scored. Each game is different and leads to different tactics and strategies.

 To have enough money is useful in all games:

In each turn the players can buy a tile from another player.

The seller determines the price, but to do it wisely is the most interesting part of this game:

A high price will lead to wealth, if someone buys this tile, but if there’s no buyer, the seller will lose the money spend on this tile. 

And in the end the player with the best kingdom will become the sovereign of the island, not the richest player! Isle of Skye is a gateway game for the whole family.

With a playing time around 45 minutes, a huge variability and easy rules it’s a perfect game for all players.

The awesome illustrations by Klemens Franz brings all the atmosphere of the Scottish island on your table.
