Galaxy of Trian is a dynamic tile-based sci-fi board game.

During the game, you take command of one alien faction, fighting over the territory and technology left by the powerful Trian race. Players have at their disposal a few kinds of basic units and spaceships, which allow for the exploration and control of the galaxy. Further ships will be released in future expansions.

The game is played in turns, in a clockwise manner. Starting with the first player, in each of their turns, players draw a tile from the stack and place it on the table. The tiles can be placed with either side face up, and must make a legal connection to those already placed on the table.

Tiles are two-sided and stacked in two piles, which gives more tactical possibilities and, at the same time, limits randomness. Special tiles, like teleports, exmitters or trade stations increase the level of interaction and give the players an even greater variety of choices.

                       

The “Beginning of Conquest” expansion, available to all Kickstarter backers, introduces two new ship classes to Galaxy of Trian: the Corvette and Rogue.  These new ships allow players to steal minerals and even to block the expansion of other player's planetary systems. The "Begining of Conquest" expansion adds even more replayability to the game.

Here are French translation of Rule book - for now only text without graphics

                     

In the "Wealth of the Ancients" expansion, you will get 12 beautifully illustrated, two-sided tiles and 12 large crystals. The rulebook appendix will introduce a number of new rules and mechanisms based on the large crystals. 

The "Wealth of the Ancients" expansion can easily be incorporated with all other expansions to the Galaxy of Trian. Available only with the "TRIAN GEEK SET".

On tiles with crystal symbol appears large minerals that give you lot of additional points. On that tiles you cannot put any resource tokens.

Trian race
Trian race
               

It was written in the Holy Matrix of Creation: 

Thou shalt share what has been given to thee…

Peaceful creatures, the Trian race became the most enlightened civilization in the known galaxy, garnering respect and admiration from all other races. They were ancient pilgrims, spreading knowledge and technology in every corner of the galaxy.

But at the height of their powers, this ancient race embarked on a journey, carrying on an everlasting mission and sending forth a mighty armada into the stars. They left behind their technology, leaving their cities abandoned as they began their pilgrimage.

And now, deserted and unprotected, the remnants of the Trian civilization stand ready for those willing to take the ancient race’s technology for themselves. The lesser races, which once would never dare trespass into Trian space, begin their slow and dangerous exploration of the Trian’s corner of the galaxy.

Details of game plot here

We are planning subsequent expansions, which will enrich the game with new tiles, races, units, missions, special abilities, technologies, artifacts and more. A great number of expansions and game variants await the players.

The game has excellent tournament conditions and we want to make use of it through the creation of a league and tournaments. Game mechanics allow players to play individually or as teams.

 


We are a group of friends who share a great passion for board games. Seweryn Piotrowski is the author of the project, while Grzegorz Kalarus and Sebastian Oliwa are the co-authors.

One day, we simply decided to redirect the energy from our passion to the track of creation. The combination of our experience and skills gave birth to the game Galaxy of Trian, in which we give you a little piece of us. We hope that the immensity of work, energy and time we have devoted will be appreciated and that you will fall in love with our game as we all did.

Graphics Andrzej Sykut

The whole project was so far funded with our private funds and, if it weren’t for the help of our friends, we wouldn’t be able to achieve such an amazing final outcome.

The creator of all the graphics in the game is an incredibly talented graphic designer – Andrzej Sykut. Thanks to his amazing imagination, the knowledge of many graphic tools and the ability of using various styles, Andrzej created magnificent art and exceeded our expectations. We wanted our game to be a small piece of art and, thanks to Andrzej, it has become one.  For this we are very grateful.

Marcin Halerz and Michał Czekaj put a great deal of work in the direction and montage of promotional videos.

Jack Hiro is the author of the climatic music you can hear in the background of our video.

Risks and challenges

Most of the problems concerning Galaxy of Trian have been dealt with.

We have contacted manufacturing companies which have a history of successfully delivering high quality products with high quality components.

Thanks to a great deal of experience in the print processes, we are able to efficiently verify our producer and make quality control changes to our components quickly.

We have prepared all stages of project realization: the materials for print, the suppliers of components, completion of the game and shipment. We are positive that we will provide you with the game “Galaxy of Trian” in December 2014 (TRIAN GEEK SET will be sent at January 2015).

To sum up, we have the knowledge and experience which allows us to create and make our project come true. The only thing we lack is your support.

During project implementation we will you update you on current changes, events and ideas.

GAMEPLAY TESTING

The game tests began in November of 2013. Over 70 people were involved in the process of testing every variant of our game.

Thanks to those who intensely performed tests, Galaxy of Trian is now a well-tested, balanced and complete game. Without our fantastic testers, we wouldn’t have been able to make real our vision.

We are extremely satisfied with the final product. We are confident that our game will meet the expectations of players, both those looking for strategic challenge and those looking for a family game.

The full list of our testers can be found on our page http://www.galaxyoftrian.com/…

MISSING/DAMAGED ITEMS

When dealing with a great number of orders, there is a possibility that something could go wrong. In the unlikely, but possible, chance of a damaged package, please contact us at grzegorz.kalarus@galaxyoftrian.com

If your package arrives broken or damaged, simply take photos of damaged elements and send them to us at grzegorz.kalarus@galaxyoftrian.com. We will replace all the damaged or missing elements with all haste.

The games will be delivered firmly packed.
