Product Description

Alien Frontiers is a game of resource management and planetary development for two to four players.

The dice you receive at the start of the game represent the spaceships in your fleet. Docking your ships at the orbital facilities will earn resources, expand your fleet, raid your opponents, discover alien technology, trade commodities, and build colony domes to land on the planet.

Winning will require careful consideration as you assign your fleet, integrate the alien technology and territory bonuses into your expansion plans, and block the other players from building colonies of their own.

Almost perfect game
March 28, 2011

I heard a lot about this game before I ended up paying a whole lot more than necessary for it but it was worth it. This game is nearly a perfect game. The fact that luck does pay a significant role in this game hasn't changed my mind about it. I prefer strategy games but there is enough strategy in this game to make it a thoughtful and challenging one. The artwork and components are top-notch for such a small company that produces it. Basically you roll dice and put them on various places of the board that have to fulfill various conditions in order to be placed. Somewhat like Pillars of the Earth with the various options laid out on the board, it is a whole lot smoother in its play than Pillars. You score points by the colonies you lay down on the planet and the territories you control. There are also alien artifacts on the planet to get that give you various abilities. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
