Cosmic Encounter

Players choose from dozens of alien races, each with its own unique power to further its efforts to build an empire.

The Fantasy Flight remake of one of the first games I ever owned, the Eon edition of Cosmic Encounter. A classic game that mixes simple gameplay with lots of interesting special powers to make a highly interactive, fun game that puts many modern designs to shame. Simply a classic.

    Thanks for the rules summary and reference for CE, it’s good, I like it. Though I had an issue when I printed out the player reference; there was not enough constrast between the orange text of the numbered phases and the background. On screen it looked fine but the orange text looked a bit soft on paper. So I changed the text to navy blue and I’m happy with the pritned result. Here’s a comparison:
    Anyway, I thought you might want to make the change as well?

      Sure. I find the orange OK and these things often depend on your make of printer and type of paper etc, but I have no problems changing it if it makes it a bit clearer. Coming soon.

    Fixed! Enjoy.
