With hundreds of different cards and multiple victory conditions, the number of strategies you can develop is endless. You can conquer your enemy's home world for a military victory, unearth ancient alien artifacts for a cultural win, or double-cross your way to a political victory at the Star Chamber. Cards include game elements such as special ships, heroes, politicians, and special alien technologies. The game models intrigue, economic planning, colonization, and both space and ground combat through both board and card game mechanics. With numerous maps to choose from you will never experience the same game twice in Star Chamber!
