Well, it’s not quite being Masters of the Universe, but being master of the galaxy is pretty good, too. Master of the Galaxy is a new board game coming from Ares Games, which they will soon have on Kickstarter. They’ve posted up a preview article, along with a preview video, so you can know what you’re getting into when their campaign starts in a couple weeks.

From the post:

Ares Games and Igrology unveil the dates of the Kickstarter campaign to fund “Master of the Galaxy”, a 4X board game (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) of galactic conquest. The project will launch on July 18th, 2017, ending on August 11th. The game is due to release in 1st quarter of 2018.

In “Master of the Galaxy”, nine Elder Races are expanding through space, ready to assimilate or exterminate anybody who stands in their way. Players are challenged to conquer the Galaxy, starting with one star system, one Species card and a modest supply of resources. Using at its core a “bag-building” mechanic, players will collect new resources to fuel their expansion and development to suit their strategy. Players can choose different ways to dominate the Galaxy – trying to quickly spread their people across the stars, developing science to a level unreachable by the opponents, or embarking themselves on a methodical extermination of the rivals.
