Among the stars is the digital version of the well-known board game and the nomination for the best card game of 2015 Origins Awards.
Imagine a distant future. The once peaceful galaxy was destroyed by war. Alien races are fighting for power and domination. And then a new threat appears on the horizon that can destroy them all. In the face of this new enemy, all races must make peace and unite in order to survive. You represent one of these races. Your goal is to help build space stations throughout the galaxy, promote trade between races, strengthen diplomatic relations, and help defeat a new threat that you all face. However, your most important task is to make your space station the best of them. Among the stars will allow you to choose places using mapping and use them to build your station, gaining victory points depending on the location. Construction lasts four years, and the alien race with the most points at the end wins.
Build your base in space! Use your maps to create new modules for your space station. Carefully choose your cards. If you do not use the card, your opponent can do it. Do you want to build a location so that it benefits your station or simply because you do not want your opponents to have it?
Control the power reactors in your space station. It is extremely important to plan ahead and build enough power reactors to maintain an expanding base. Power reactors have a short range, so you need to correctly position the base to maximize energy consumption.
There are five different types of locations. Balancing the station is the key to victory. By carefully planning and using the cards, you can create amazing combinations that will allow you to get ahead of your opponents. Over 120 map locations guarantee high reproducibility and great strategic depth.
Each race has a unique skill that can be used to gain victory from your opponents. Using racing skills makes you change your playing style a bit and adds another level of complexity to your decision making process.
Goals are another way to gain an edge over opponents. You can risk and ignore them, but you can risk and try to get a goal for an extra reward.
Enjoy a single-player campaign. All campaign missions change the rules of the main game in a unique way. Each mission requires a different strategy to bring you victory.
