What’s in the box?

  • 10 exploration tiles
  • 10 mission tiles
  • Five module tiles
  • One pad of cosmos sheets
  • Four pencils
  • 11 Exploration templates

How to play:

Try to get as many victory points as you can over three rounds. On your turn, choose the shape you want to draw on your sheet from the Exploration Zones available and also the shape your opponents much also draw.

The game plays over three rounds, each round consisting of four or five turns depending on player choices. Each turn has two phases:

  1. ASSIGN
    Choose which shpaes from the Exploration Zones you and all opponents must draw. Take the top module from the pile and slide it into any two adjacent nnotches on the side of the board. Note: if there is nowhere to place the module, this signals the end of the round.
  2. DRAW
    Outline hexagons on your Cosmos sheet in the shape on the Exploration Zone assigned to you during the previous phase. Shape rules: Shape must cover at least one space that is adjacent to any previously-drawn shape on your cosmos sheet. You must draw the entire shape. Shape can cover alien, and upgrade spaces but never the starting key, treasure and outer world spaces. If you cannot follow these rules, you are not able to draw a space this turn.

Once everyone has drawn, then it is time to start the next players turn.

After the third round, score to determine the winner. Each mission tile determines where on your grid you must try to draw the shapes on the Exploration zones in order to gain victory points. For each mission tile, write the number of victory points you gain based on your fulfilled requirements.

The most points at the ends wins!
