The galaxy is only so large. There's only so many resources and habitable worlds out there. If a civilization is to survive, they need to make sure they get what they can. That's where you find yourself in NEXUM Galaxy, a new 4X board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Nexum Galaxy is a game for 1 to 4 players aged 12+, in which you fight against other Civilizations in epic interplanetary battles to dominate the Galaxy.
With simple and intuitive rules and a high tactical component, Nexum Galaxy brings 3 of the "X's" of this type of game, as you eXpand your control, eXploit Sector resources, and eXterminate your enemies.
Nexum Galaxy is as scalable as you want it to be: play quick games with casual players, or add events, and play different game modes: co-op, solo against an AI, competitive with both human and AI players, campaign mode, and more.
The campaign's up and over its funding goal with 16 days left to go.
