The Game of Intergalactic Alliances, Negotiation and Colonization. Seek and defend space colonies with unique ships and carriers. Players represent alien races that are seeking to spread themselves onto five foreign worlds. To accomplish this, they make challenges against other players and enlist the aid of interested parties. But all that would be boring without alien powers, which are unique to each race. The alien powers give players ways to bend or outright break some rule in the game... The board consists of a home system with five planets for each player and an area in the middle termed "The Warp". There is also a cardboard HyperWarp Cone used for pointing an attack at an opponent's planet. Each player begins with twenty tokens in their home system (five on each planet). Two decks of cards are used: one deck which determines who is attacked next (the "destiny" pile), and one which contains the cards players hold in their hands. This second deck is made up of numbered cards which are used in challenges and many other special cards which affect the game in various ways. On each challenge a player turns over a card from the first deck that determines which system to attack (his/her "destiny"), chooses a particular planet in that system, and puts one or more tokens in the cone to attack with. The attacking and defending players then have the opportunity to ask other players to ally with them. Allies stand to gain benefits if they join the winning side, or suffer losses if on the losing side. Each main player then selects one of the numbered cards from his hand, to play face down, then flip over simultaneously. The cards and tokens involved in the challenge are added up, any special conditions or cards played are taken into account, and the side with the higher total wins. If the attacking player is successful, he gains a base on the disputed planet. All tokens from the losing side are sent into the warp, where they cannot be used until retrieved. The object of the game is to establish five bases on planets outside of one's home system.
