Cosmic Encounter is a board game in which three or more players compete and cooperate in order to conquer enemy planets and spread their influence across the universe. This is done by managing one's forces of ships, playing cards at the right time and skillfully forming alliances with the other players. Each player plays as an alien race with its own unique power, allowing them to skew certain rules of the game to their advantage. Once one or more players have established five colonies on opposing planets, they win the game.
This version of the Cosmic Encounter is made of card images found on the fandom wiki and scans from a french version of the game. Including Cosmic Incursion, Cosmic Conflict and Comic Alliance Extensions
