Battle Cards, each with a unique ship diagram. Ship names to the right are simply for flavor.
Board with pieces. Moons and planet pieces are missing but this gives the general impression.The board is very simple but effective. Dots are placed at the corners of all the hexes connected with subtle gray lines for definition. It's sort of a constellation look. By varying the star sizes the appearance seems more random then it is. This dot graphic then serves not only to provide atmosphere but also highlights the board’s structure. The board reminds me a little of Ingenious with its simple background, black and a bright colored symbol on the hex shaped pieces. The board fills up with pieces really quickly, so it is not of much use to focus on much detail here which could take away from the scanning. Besides this, the simple, straightforward graphic look is in line with other components and has a modern look to it.
Battle Cards – special weapons. There are only 3 special weapons cards with very straightforward effects. Simple enough to quickly understand and supplimented with an icon in the lower left. Some might initially complain of the text running up the side, but, as said with only 3 simple choices, it's easier to look at the icon once you know what the choices are. The vertical type then graphically supports the vertically formatted projectiles.Players may attack an opponent’s space using battle cards (pictured above). Basically, for battles, cards are played either in suit or in different suits, adding the total (along with modifiers) to determine who gets that space. The gray cards are sort of wild (with some restrictions) and then there are 3 special cards.
The player’s screens will have different aliens on them. These few are the humoids. Painted very realistically, they are crisp and clean and complement the high contrast cards and other iconic graphics.
