Description Edit | History

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 the alien race with the most points at the end wins.

7 Among the Stars Starting Decks
I created two starting decks from the base game and the Ambassadors expansion. They're geared toward playing with four players (each has 60 basic location cards). I'm by *no means* an expert at Among the Stars, so please do let me know if you run into problems or recommend changes.

5 Among the Stars - Basic Locations Starter Decks
I wanted to create three starter decks with the basic locations from all three sets of ATS. There are 3 starter decks with 44 cards a piece. They have a balance of 8-12 cards per color. The goal was to be able to create ease of set up by having 3 starter basic locations ready to go, then you just add 52 cards from the Special Locations for a 4 player game. (10 from each color, one color gets 12)
