Master of Orion: The Board Game will take you into the epic world of the legendary strategy video game. You will lead one of the mighty races that face each other in a grand space struggle. Your actions will determine the fate of the sneaky Darloks, ingenious Psilons, versatile humans and many others.
Prepare to rule the vast star systems! Manage your resources and production capacities wisely. You can choose a military way: strengthen your space fleet, attack your opponents' planets and train your spies. Or you can choose a peaceful strategy: invest in ecology, learn to control weather, implement resource recycling and improve the quality of your race's life.
The dynamic and finely balanced game mechanics will offer you many paths to victory. The leader of the most developed nation will be appointed the Emperor at the Galactic Council!
Played this at Origins. This is a well-balanced game, allowing many different types of actions to increase loyalty, food, fleet/military, production, and points. You can interact with others through military and use of cards that you build, and/or focus on your own systems. The paper/board material was a little flimsy, but the cards and cubes were the same quality as most.
