About

Game set up for 4 players
Game set up for 4 players

Exploration is an innovative space themed game with a mix of deckbuilder, area control and unique orbital movement mechanics.  You will take control of corporations at the start of the new Space  Race. Send out colonization ships, dispatch science expeditions, collect  resources, modify your designs, develop new technology, or even  sabotage your opponent’s missions.

  • Unique orbital movement mechanics greatly increasing game immersion 
  •  Spaceship fleet deckbuilding game 
  •  Area control  
  • A flexible strategy depending on your opponent's moves 
  • 30 - 150 minutes of gameplay for 1 - 5 players  
  • Solo mode


Fleet

Build up your fleet with an array of ships, from  transports to destroyers, and everything in between. Some ships rely on  speed and maneuverability, while others boast impressive shields and  armaments. Build your fleet to your faction’s strengths to gain  dominance of near-Earth space.

Explore

Riches and experiences await intrepid explorers,  and those who make their way to the space beyond gain even greater  rewards. But beware, for with unexplored space comes unfortunate events.  Explore effectively to get ahead of the competition. 

Battle

When the competition gets fierce, only the strong  survive. Attack other factions to hinder their progress—and increase  your own. Some ships can take more of a beating than others, so plan  carefully, or risk being on the receiving end of a deadly counter  attack.

 Domination

Earn points by completing secret missions,  destroying enemy spaceships, gathering resources, and more. But be wary  of your opponents, because they’re also out there with the intent to  control near-Earth space. Use your resources to gain the upper hand and  show the other factions who deserves the right to this final frontier. 

 Original version of game will be printed in English language, but we can translate it the game into Polish, French, Spanish, German and Italian, with digital deliverables.  This will be triggered by the number of backers at the end of the project, as follows:  

  •  50 backers -  We will translate the core rules only.  PDF deliverables. 
  •  100 backers - We will translate the rulebook and all cards and game components. PDF deliverables.

 Of course if backers invovement from each country, will be much higher we will consider to add digital locales to the printed language edition.       

We will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter ends, to avoid  shipping cost differences. We will collect this via pledge manager. We  will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs placed in  USA, UK, Canada, Australia and China. Below is the list of estimated  shipping cost.These prices includes VAT and Import Taxes.
