The retail edition of Master of the Galaxy, the 4X board game (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) of galactic conquest successfully funded on Kickstarter last year, will start to hit the US stores from August, 24th. The shipment of the rewards to the Kickstarter backers were completed and so the game is now in distribution in the US market. In other regions, the retail edition will be available just after the KS backers fulfillment will be completed.

Master of the Galaxy: a fast-pacing, innovative 4Х board game.

Master of the Galaxy is a fast playing 4Х board game for 2 to 4 players, ages 12 and up, presenting a unique and innovative blend of bag-building, card-drafting and tech-tree development mechanics, inspired on classic science-fiction, movies, and computer games.

Nine Elder Races are expanding through space, ready to assimilate or exterminate anybody who stands in their way. Players are challenged to conquer the Galaxy, starting with one star system, one Species card and a modest supply of resources. Using the “bag-building” mechanic, players will collect new resources to fuel their expansion and development to suit their strategy. Players can choose different ways to dominate the Galaxy - trying to quickly spread their people across the stars, developing science to a level unreachable by the opponents, or embarking themselves on a methodical extermination of the rivals.
