Finally, done to perfection (almost)
March 15, 2015

At last a company has done it just right. FFG has listened to the fans and not only included all the favorite parts of Cosmic, they have also included the best of the ideas from the many Cosmic fan websites. That is, if you pick up all the expansion sets as well (four so far). Let's hope they release the Lucre expansion (introducing an economy to the game) to make it complete. Thank you FFG for restoring a great classic without disappointing!

How do they fail to market this game
October 21, 2005

I cannot understand how these companies have failed so miserably at marketing this game. Everyone I have ever played with LOVES the game. Even those who normally will play nothing more complicated than Hearts will play this game and enjoy it immensly.


Forego the elaborate figures and plastic if it keeps the cost or production down if you must, but please oh please re-release this game and subsequent expansions.

Simply the best!
April 21, 2004

I began playing Cosmic Encounter when I was a young teenager. I loved the game then, so naturally I was hesitant to try the 'new version' of the game. I love it! The graphics are amazing! This is simply the best board game ever! My father still has the 'original' version. I would give a great deal to have it in my possession, but he still plays it!
