Kickstart exploration into a new galaxy on May 30 with the Take The Galaxy Kickstarter.
On the 30 th of May we will be launching a €7,200 Kickstarter for our new sci-fi card game Take the Galaxy. Players compete against each other or in a solo game mode to earn the most Renown as they explore and colonize an unpredictable galaxy. There are dozens of unique cards representing the wonders of unknown space as well as the colonies, industries and space craft which players can build. With the sheer variety of cards, no game will play out the same! The game is already tested and polished, and the Kickstarter will cover distribution and production starting costs.
Any coverage is much appreciated!

You start off with a frontier colony built on a habitable planet. The planet cannot support more civilization colonies, but it does have the logistical potential to expand with a utility colony. Will you aim to seize valuable mineral deposits, and use the income from mining operations to finance expensive high value colonies? Or maybe you prefer to focus on science, and the renown from being the first to research the wonders of this new galaxy? Construct enormous space ships to boost your economy, or cut corners and use moral flexibility to gain an advantage – these are hard choices, but your faction is relying on you!
