Among the Stars takes place in a war-ravaged galaxy where the warring alien races have declared peace in the wake of a threat with the potential to destroy them all. An Alliance is established to build space stations throughout the galaxy in order to promote trade among the races, strengthen diplomatic relations, and defend against this impending threat. Each player takes the role of one of those races trying to build the greatest space station. Through card drafting, the players select locations, and use these to build their station, scoring victory points based on the placement. The construction lasts four years, and alien race with the most points at the end wins.
Among the Stars is a critically acclaimed game, which uses card drafting (like in “7 Wonders“). It was originally published only in Europe by Artipia Games, and it has been unavailable in retail channels throughout the rest of the world. Stronghold Games is proud to bring this game out for the North American, Asian, and Australian gamers!
All expansions for Among the Stars will be published by Stronghold Games as well, so stay tuned for the rest of this great game line!
