InterSpace

nebula_hex_small.png

InterSpace is a space exploration & exploitation board game for 2 to 4 players.  Each player assumes the role of a civilization that has grown beyond its home world and is expanding into the Universe.  Players build ships, explore space, colonize planets, and trade with or wage war on the other players.  Players also develop new technologies and expand their industrial bases, allowing them to build more and better ships.
