Description Edit | History

Escape! Expand! Defend! Conquer!

Your civilization is living peacefully in a solar system whose sun is steadily approaching Supernova. You must abandon your planet and fight for a foothold in a new solar system before your home world is destroyed. Over the next millennium, you will have to learn new technologies - Weapons, Shields, Communications or Engines - to aid in your quest for survival. Earn income by mining moons and discover alien races on new planets, earning you valuable bonuses. You need to plan carefully, balancing your rate of expansion with defense, as you must guard your claimed territory and fend off other civilizations to protect what you have rightfully won.

Supernova is a board game with a unique card-based battle system and inspired artwork by Mike Doyle. Players vie for control of space as well as the unstable sun, imminently approaching Supernova. Players acquire points by owning planets and moons, earning income, and by placing tiles to expand their empire. The modular game board of this wonderful new space design offers a different experience with each play. The player with the most points when the sun goes Supernova is proclaimed the winner!

Supernova is #3 in the Valley Games Modern Line
