Product Description

Galactic Emperor is a fast paced empire-building board game of exploration, conflict and struggle for dominance. The last Galactic Emperor has met with a sudden and quite fatal accident. Now there is a power vacuum in the galaxy, and you are one of the Planetary Dukes who wants to fill it. Each player controls a space sector with a home planet, and for a time, shares the power of the galactic throne. During the fight for control, the central Omega Sun is heading toward collapse... a cataclysm that will only accelerate the chaos! The game plays over several rounds, and within each round, the roles players choose determine what happens next. There are 7 different types of roles: Explorer, Steward, Merchant, Engineer, Warlord, Regent, and Scientist. All players get a turn to act during each role. Players discover planets, gain resources, build ships, and attack space fleets in a desperate effort to grind foes into cosmic dust! The player with the most victory points at the end of the game wins, becoming the ultimate Galactic Emperor!

This game is good for fans of Setters of Catan, Puerto Rico, and I'd like to say Twilight Imperium but I haven't taken that one for a spin yet. Risk players would also enjoy it, but be warned that it is a more complex game. Its a great choice for players that like to attack, rather than players that like to "turtle" behind a defensive line and avoid conflict.

Each player has a homeworld, and has an objective of occupying as many worlds as possible in order to score victory points. Worlds can be taken through exploration, diplomacy or military conquest, though most of the real scoring happens during the regent phase when each player's total holdings are added up.

The game thrives under larger numbers of players. Player empires become perilously close together, forcing military buildups on multiple fronts.

The game is most enjoyable when you don't play defensively. Fleets cost a lot of resources to build, but you have a limited number of each model that you can build and there are plenty of opportunities to rebuild your fleet over the course of the game. In the second half of the game, a black hole is added to the board which offers a nice surprise attack option. Also, short term gains afforded by military conquest can have a significant impact on the final score.

And best of all, the end game tiebreaker is the top players battling it out with what remains of their fleets. ;)
