Description Edit | History

4000 AD is a unique game of strategy set two thousand years in the future, when men have spread to the planets of other stars hundreds of light-years from the earth. An interstellar conflict between worlds is its subject. The concept of star travel by hyper-space is the basis of its unique playing character.

4000 AD is pure strategy of movement, with no chance element. Two to four players may play independently or in alliance with others. Players use fleets of space ships to claim stars following combat with opposing fleets. Fleets move using a hidden hyperspace movement system based on the distance between stars. Captured stars generate more ships. Victory is determined by the last player to be eliminated.

from the Waddington ad for this game from 1977. " 4000 A.D. is a unique strategy game of unusual scope. The principle of movement is original, and provides unlimited variation in play and strategy"

3 The original board
Actually, a reconstruction, but everything (stars, population and raw materials) is in the right place. It lacks the warp tracks on the side, but you can easily make that with a piece of black cardboard. With a slight bit of downsizing, it will fit onto an 8" x 17" board.
