  • A Game for 2-4 Players
  • Game Length 120 min.

The galaxy is at war. The Pyrious Empire is struggling to maintain power, and a few young alien races see this as a long-awaited opportunity to become the next galactic superpower. Shipyards in every world are ramping up starship production, and arguments and accusations at the galactic council grow more and more heated. The tension across lightyears is palpable. Even now, secret alliances are underway and the sentient races are quickly taking sides.

In Empires of the Void, two to four players compete to expand their empire in a vast, diverse galaxy. Each time a player reaches a new planet, he must decide whether to conquer it and strip the land of its resources, or befriend the natives and obtain their special ability. Players earn victory points by expanding their empires, through technological growth, and by controlling the galactic council. The player with the most victory points after three scoring rounds wins the game and becomes the next ruler of the galaxy!
