Game Features

Colony Structures - These cards represent your primary Colony structures that you have to build to win the game. The cards have two sides, a side that shows the built structures and a side that shows the unbuilt side.

Structure Cards - The Structure Cards come in four different colors. This represents the various parts of the turn that the cards can be activated in. The cards have an Activation Target on the top right of the card, and these range from 2 to 15 but exclude 1, 9, and 16. To activate a structure and use the feature, you need to roll the same number on the dice during your Activation Roll as the Activation Target.

Event Cards - Event Cards represent random events that occur on the planet, these events will come in to play when you are unable to roll an Activation Target on your turn during your Activation Roll.

 

Influence Cards - Influence Cards represent the ability of the players to influence dice rolls of anyone (including their own dice rolls). An Influence Card can be played anytime a player makes a dice roll by any other player (including themselves).

Novinium Tokens - Players will typically have Novinium Tokens in front of them and this is referred to as the Novinium Stockpile. The rest of the Novinium is placed in a pile in easy reach of all the players and this is referred to as the Resource Pile.

Target Tokens - Target tokens come in denominations of 1 to 16 units and represent the Activation Target that you want to target this structure on. These tokens can only be used on structures that are marked with a “Tt” on the Activation Target portion of the card.

"This is so much fun to play! No two games are the same, and you have to be on your toes when playing and pray that luck is in your favour. Works well as a 2 player and a 4 player game, and is a great game. Love the artwork!"
