Seventeen new planets have been discovered. Now, there’s a mad rush to colonize and exploit them for resources. But these planets are only big enough for so many people to try and get at them, and nobody wants to share. The resources gained from these planets can have far-reaching impact on the politics of the galaxy, and everyone wants to be the ones to come out on top. That’s the story behind Universal Rule, a new pocket-sized 4X strategy game that’s up on Kickstarter now.
“Pocket-sized?” Yes, as this 4X (explore, expand, exploit, exterminate) game has just 18 cards to it. But in those few cards, you’ll be colonizing worlds, mining them for resources, upgrading them, and possibly destroying them. Simply collect and have the most VPs at the end of the game and be the new ruler of the galaxy.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They’re already a bit more than 2x funded, but there’s only 10 more days to get in on the action.
