Cryptozoic Entertainment and Hobby World are teaming up to bring a new game to US tabletops next year. Master of Orion takes its theme and gameplay from the classic strategy video game, putting you in control of either the humans or one of the various alien races in an attempt to prove that you have what it takes to be in control as the Emperor at the Galactic Council. But which path will you take to the top?
Each player is looking to acquire victory points. This is done in various different ways. They can go the production route by looking to build up their various resources and research new technology. Or they can go the attacking route, creating vast armadas of ships and conquering their neighbors. Or you might look to balance between the two, all depending on the resources available and the opportunities presented.
Expect to see the game on store shelves in early 2017.
