Description Edit | History

Galactic Emperor is a fast paced empire-building game of exploration, conflict, and struggle for dominance. The last Galactic Emperor has met with a sudden and quite fatal accident. Now there is a power vacuum in the galaxy, and you’re one of the Planetary Dukes who wants to fill it. Each player controls a space sector with a home planet, and for a time, shares the power of the galactic throne. During the fight for control, the central Omega Sun is heading toward collapse… a cataclysm that will only accelerate the chaos!

The game plays over several rounds, and within each round, the roles players choose determine what happens next. There are 7 different types of roles: Explorer, Steward, Merchant, Engineer, Warlord, Regent, and Scientist. All players get a turn to act during each role. Players discover planets, gain resources, build ships, and attack space fleets in a desperate effort to grind foes into cosmic dust!

The player with the most victory points at the end of the game wins, becoming the ultimate Galactic Emperor!

3 Expansion de Mejoras
esta ampliacion con mejoras a cada raza incluye un mazo de mejoras con 9 cartas unicas de cada raza y que se podrian jugar en una fase nueva que evidentemente se llamara fase de mejoras y que se jugaria despues de que todos hayan elejido personaje, en la fase de mejoras todos los jugadores empezando por el inicial pueden coger su mazo de mejoras y pagar por una mejora para ponerla en juego. Quizas pueda parecer una nueva fase tecnologica, he intentando que no sea, asi que agradeceria sugerencias si lo testeais, aunque no quiero abarcar demasiado ya que el espiritu y mecanica del juego podria cambiar y enlentecerse demasiado, asi que tampoco quiero afectar al equilibrio del juego y convertir el Galactic Emperor en un Twigligth. En fin todo es ir probando supongo.

10 GalEmp Battleboard
Saw this for other games and thought it would be nice to have one for GalEmp as well.Battleboard for "bigger" battles,units to be placed in the appropriate column.All columns have a short description of how their units behave in battle.Battle your way from left to right.Hopefully i did get it all right from the rules, if there´s something wrong or any ideas for improvement, just go ahead and we´ll figure something out.
