Twilight Imperium Space Board Game

Cosmic Encounter: This is an adventure/strategy game featuring cards, counters, game pieces and more where players seek to expand their galactic empire and take control of the cosmos. It's like Risk, but everyone has a super power that wildly breaks the game. Suitable for three to five players age 14 and above. 

ISS Vanguard: This game is a bit different to the others on offer, it's a cooperative game that allows players to explore vivid alien worlds while keeping on top of security, recon, science and engineering. It's suitable for one to four players age 14 and up. 

Twilight Imperium: This is the largest game on offer here, with over 1000 components. Our Tech Editor describes it as "Risk crossed with a meeting of the UN", and he's pretty bang on with that description. Players take control of one (out of 17 factions) and pit their wits against each other to form alliances and expand their respective empires through politics and warfare. Suitable for up to six players.
