In InterSpace you command your own Fleet of Vessels and Stations (ranging from Scouts through Transports, Patrol and Assault boats to Destroyers and Galaxy Stations) and keep growing your own Empire on several planets and Space areas. Your Economy is dependant on Mineral sources from nearby Asteroid fields, that provide additional resources for building Ships and Stations.
You explore the area you are living in and discover new (sometimes dangerous) corners of space. Through Wormholes you can even connect to a neighbouring Empire that until now did not know a blip that you existed!
If you happen to encounter other races (ruled by other players) you can wage war on them and if successful, you can try to conquer their worlds. Combat resolution mechanics is fast and smooth, all you need is some six-sided dice.
All in all this game offers a nice Space-enjoyment, wrapped in a free (for cost-free) wrapper. You just need to print everything out, cut it ready and open the Rulebook to start with Basic Rules. Once you are familiar (and played some gamesň, continue to Standard rules to add complexity and diverse complications. And for those willing to squeeze the bottom, there are several Advanced rules waiting.
Move on, young Emperor! The Galaxy is yours to conquer...
