About

 Cosmic Colonies is an Orbit-Drafting, Tile Placement Game for 1 to 5 players and plays in about 30 to 60 minutes.

Asteroids blast through the cosmos, each packed with possibilities. One may be your perfect new home, but it takes a stellar team to build a cosmic colony…

Players must leverage their workers’ unique abilities to gather resources and construct new buildings while cleverly expanding their colonies. Each round brings new opportunities—and new talent.

Your old workers will blast off to other players, while new workers orbit around to join your team!

Using clever planning you can build the best celestial city to shine the brightest in Cosmic Colonies!

French Overview

The above-noted expansion is a Direct Exclusive that will be included for all backers. It will be available for sale separately after the Kickstarter with limited availability directly through Floodgate Games.  


Every backer is important to us, regardless of location, but the reality is that shipping and sales taxes are very expensive and is a cost we all need to share. To offset this, while remaining fiscally responsible, we have included a discount on ALL shipping and taxes, but there is no free shipping. 

Please see shipping & taxes chart below:

All rewards for this project will be shipped from local depots where possible. This campaign is US-Customs Friendly, CA-Customs Friendly, UK-Customs Friendly, EU-Customs Friendly, AU-Customs Friendly, and NZ-Customs Friendly. Therefore if you live in any of these regions and have any additional charges for receiving your package, simply send us a direct message her eon Kickstarter and a copy of your customs receipt and we will reimburse you via PayPal. A small PayPal fee will apply and will not be reimbursed.

Unfortunately, different import laws and customs have made it impossible for Floodgate Games to ship to certain countries.

We are excited to offer retailer packages for Brick and Mortar stores. Please select the retail pledge level and send us a direct message to finalize your order.

It is important that everyone knows that we are using a pledge manager. That means you’ll be able to manage your pledge amount for all the add-ons that you want after the project closes, along with during the campaign. We will post an update to notify backers when the pledge manager email is being sent out. At that time, you’ll need to manage your pledge and enter your shipping address and complete your order.

Risks and challenges

I'm very excited to be back on Kickstarter with out latest project, and with it, looking forward to tackling the challenges it provides.

When it comes to publishing a tabletop game, manufacturing and shipping logistics are easily the biggest challenge areas. I've had several smooth campaigns, and some rough ones and learned a ton along the way!

I've been working with the same manufacturer for the last several game projects, and I have every confidence that they will deliver with high quality on time. As always, there's the chance of things like production issues, shipping delays, national holidays, customs hold-ups and unpredictable weather. We're also partnering with Quartermaster Logistics to make sure delivery to you works out well. I'm eager to do my best to deliver a great game in a timely manner straight to you.

All of the Illustration & graphic design work is nearly complete! I'm planning to start the pre-press process before the project closes to help give us a head start on getting Cosmic Colonies to your table even faster!

As always, I appreciate your support and patience as I'm sure despite our best efforts there are bound to be unforeseen complications... nonetheless, I'm looking forward to keeping you well informed the whole way!
