Cosmic Encounter is a game of interplanetary colonization and cunning negotiations in which three to five players become the leaders unique alien species seeking to colonize as many planets as possible away from your native system. The first leader to colonize five planets in other species’ systems wins. Of course, every planet is ruled by someone and even planets that are not colonized are still defended. In order to establish a settlement, you’ll need to win over the planet’s ruler, either through negotiation, partnership, or war.
