The ancient Galactic Realm, ruled from the Core Worlds of the galaxy, is waning. Now, the barbaric kingdoms that lie beyond the galactic frontier are amassing their strength, choosing this pivotal moment to strike at the heart of the fading republic, establishing new empires built upon the ashes of decaying civilizations.
Each player controls a barbarian Star Empire. Throughout the game, players will invade Worlds and draft new Units and Tactics into their Empires. Each Unit and World you acquire is worth a certain number of Empire Points. The player whose Empire contains the most Empire Points at the end of the game is the winner!
