A system of viable exoplanets has been recently discovered and the Confederations are flocking into space to colonize it.
Welcome to Space Gate Odyssey! In this 2 to 4-player development and flow-management board game, you play the leader of one of these Confederations and play your influence in the Odyssey command station to send as many of your settlers as you can on these exoplanets.
This is a complex game of stages. Every stage comes with new strategic requirements. Beginning on your home planet, building a space gate, sending settlers to an exoplanet, and optimizing settler placement on these exoplanets to secure favorable spots and gain influence over the game.
To get to one of these exoplanets, only one possible means of transport exists: space gates.
For reasons related to ... ... physics ...and ..other quantum timey-wimey aspects, these gates can be built only in space. The Confederations have therefore embarked on the construction of their own station in orbit, equipped with space gates.
At the beginning of the colonizing era, these portals make it possible to go on one of the first three discovered planets. As soon as an entire contingent of settlers has joined the gate of a space station, it is teleported to the corresponding exoplanet. The landing conditions vary according to the planets and the choice of colonized spots quickly becomes strategic.
The choice of the modules, their arrangement, and the distance between the airlocks and the gates are essential elements — especially since, at the end of the game, the domains of the modules you used to build your station will bring you additional influence points if they are in line with the position of the domains on the Hawking planet Predominance.
Makes sense? Well it will once you play this game with some of your closest friends.
Space Gate Odyssey has the potential to become your favorite go-to board game to satisfy your board game craving.
