Cosmic Colonies - Direct Edition box art

Asteroids blast through the cosmos... each one packed with possibilities. 

One may be your perfect new home, but it takes a stellar team to build a cosmic colony.

Players must leverage their workers’ unique abilities to gather resources and construct new buildings while cleverly expanding their colonies. Each round brings new opportunities—and new talent. Your old workers will blast off to other players, while their workers orbit around to join your team! 

Using clever planning you can build the best celestial city to shine the brightest in Cosmic Colonies!

This is a very strong gateway game...simple choices but good, fulfilling ones. A great little game, I'm definitely impressed with it.

Dice Tower - Tom Vasel

This initiative system with a super-tight polyomino puzzle makes Cosmic Colonies a very, very sharp game

The passing of these worker cards make the game stand out among other drafting and tile-placement games.

All the things I like about games like this are here

Undead Viking

A fantastic game. Its core mechanic feels clever and makes you think around your opponents, there’s plenty of variability game to game, and it’s a ton of fun for new and experienced gamers alike.

This is definitely a cool game. I am a sucker for drafting and I think with the closed selection of cards it can be really interesting. I love the different boards and the hidden goals to work towards. It has a lot of great mechanics and will keep the game interesting from play to play.

It's light, yet strategic, still has interesting decision-making, has the fun-factor and is highly accessible.

Before You Play

Great for players who like strategy, but it's easy to get to the table

Meeple Mountain - Brody Sheard

Cosmic Colonies fits the family game genre very well. It is easy to learn and it plays in about a half hour, but its decisions are interesting nonetheless.

This is a good family game, and an interesting 2-player game as well
