Alien Frontiers (5th Edition): A board game of strategy & luck deep in uncharted space for 2 to 4 players.

Welcome to the prize of mankind's explorations, a newly discovered world deep in uncharted space. The alien civilization that once ruled here vanished long ago, leaving traces of their technology and a terrain ripe for settlement. Now the race is on to see who can take control of this abandoned planet!

Alien Frontiers is a board game of strategy and luck for two to four players. You will utilize orbital facilities, discover alien technology, and build colonies to control vital locations. Every maneuver has an advantage but also a cost, and victory requires tough decisions. Assign your fleet, leverage territory bonuses, and manage resources to achieve your goals wile blocking the plans of your opponents.

From the Publisher:

When humans first landed on the new world they knew it would be rough going. Building up fuel and ore reserves and constructing colony domes is hard work. But then the first alien artifact was discovered, and the secret tunnels, and the abandoned city. Now it's a race to colonize and control this Alien Frontier.

Alien Frontiers is a game of resource management, worker placement, and area control set in a retro-future scifi universe.

The dice you receive at the start of the game represent the spaceships in your fleet. Docking your ships at the orbital facilities will earn resources, expand your fleet, raid your opponents, discover alien technology, trade commodities, and build colony domes to land on the planet.
Winning will require careful consideration as you assign your fleet, integrate the alien technology and territory bonuses into your expansion plans, and block the other players from building colonies of their own.
