About


What is Small Star Empires?

Small Star Empires is highly engaging, easy to learn, and quick to play area control game for 2-4 players. In this game, players colonize the galaxy using their ships, which they will move on a modular board, allowing for a different map and different experience each time you play the game.

The rules are simple: Each turn a player has to move one of his ships in a straight line, as many spaces (star systems) as he wants but he cannot go over systems controlled by other players. After his move, he has to place a Colony or Trade Station on that system, thus gaining control over that system for until the end of the game, for which he will get an amount of points. When all of the players placed their Colonies and Trade Stations, the game ends and points are calculated. The player with the most points is the winner!

With these extremely simple rules, players will get into the game from the very start and they will immediately immerse in the depths of the tactical and strategic choices they will need to make, in order to score more efficiently at the end of the game.

Risks and challenges

Since Small Star Empires is an already published game, most of the aspects regarding the base game are ready. This will give us space to focus more on the expansions so we make sure we deliver to you a great product again, and on time.

That being said, some delays are always possible. These possible delays can come from shipping, manufacturing or customs and some depending on the stretch goals we will unlock in the campaign. We will be overviewing the process as close as possible from the moment we start manufacturing and of course keep an open channel with you so you would be kept in the loop.

That being said, we feel we need to mention that we are still in the process of sampling Galactic Warlords, our 2nd game, and we believe we will start the manufacturing ASAP, and deliver that game to you before you receive Small Star Empires.

We are really thankful that you have supported us this far and are determined to bring you another product of great quality!
