Eminent Domain is for 2-4 Players and playable in 60 minutes. The game is great for anybody 10-97 years old, has easy to learn rules, and great depth of strategy.
All games that you get as a result of support on Kickstarter will come with **EXCLUSIVE** Prestige Planets. Sometimes you wonder, just how exclusive something like this really is...
You will not be able to get the Prestige Planets any other way until a first expansion comes along. No other way, not through BGG, not direct from us, not at conventions... Seriously, supporting through Kickstarter is the only way until the first expansion! No exceptions, not even for family.
A few words from the publisher, Michael Mindes:
I think I am a lot like you; I love science fiction and games in space. I also love games about building civilizations, games with easy to learn rules, and game that after a couple of plays keep me thinking about them for weeks.
Think about the times a game grabbed your attention and refused to let go. You know the ones... They capture your imagination and leave you day dreaming about strategies. Eminent Domain is like that.
You have the honor to make sure Eminent Domain is published now, instead of sometime in 2012.
A few words from the designer, Seth Jaffee:
Eminent Domain is a space empire building game that revolves around a deck of role cards.
Each turn you choose a Role. You boost its power by playing cards that match. The role you choose becomes a part of your deck.
Even though everybody starts with the same deck, strategies quickly diverge. It is exciting to see how different types of space empires fare against each other.
Using these Roles, you'll Survey to discover planets. Using Colonize or Warfare you conquer planets. Conquered planets give you points, abilities, resources to harvest and then trade, and the ability to research matching tech types.
Over the course of the game you specialize in some combination of these Roles depending on your strategy. Will you be the warmonger who uses Survey and Warfare to take over many planets? Or will you concentrate on harvesting and trading resources? Maybe you'll invest heavily in research for points and upgraded abilities! The Choice Is Yours...
Dominion brought "deckbuilding" games onto the scene. I've striven to make Eminent Domain a deep, interesting, and fun game that uses deck building as a main mechanism; not another "deck building" game.
The rules of Eminent Domain are available at Tasty Minstrel's website. Of course, they haven't gotten the full art treatment yet, but you can check them out.
