This is a lighter version of the Cosmic Encounter game. All of the same elements are there, they've simply reduced the number of alien races. The races and cards have been chosen for use in an introductory game.
Contents: 4 planetary system hexes and 1 warp hex
80 tokens (20 bases for each color)
2 decks of cards (including Destiny, Flare, Edict, Reinforcement, Compromise and Attack)
