Cosmic Pioneers is a Sci-fi board game for 2 to 4 players. It is an area control game where players try to control planets vs the other players and of course vs aliens. Each player starts with a ship and a different commander (with a unique ability). By upgrading the ship players try to control as more as possible planets using Colonists. However the planets are already habitable by aliens that wish not share their home planet.

The winner of the game is the one who will have most victory points at the end of the game. Explore the new system, colonize its planets, upgrade your ship, and exterminate your opponents!
