CGE has announced another new release for Essen Spiel 2017, Pulsar 2849. The game is designed by Vladimír Suchý, it is for 2 – 4 players, and takes around 90 minutes to play.
In this Euro-style game, players explore space, claim pulsars, and discover technologies that will help them build energy-distribution infrastructure on a cosmic scale. Players choose their dice from a communal pool and then use them to take actions. There are many paths to victory, so you can blaze your own trail to a bright future.
From the game description:
Draft dice to explore the universe in Pulsar 2849. Each round, roll dice based on the number of players, sort them based on their values, then draft dice to take actions, such as adding another spaceship to your fleet or visiting (or flying through) an unexplored star system or tagging a pulsar with one of your identity rings or advancing on your personal tech track, which differs from those of other players. At the end of the round, the turn marker advances based on the dice rolled that turn, and when the marker reaches the end of the track, the game ends.
Players score points each round based on what they've discovered and explored, and everyone has hidden goals that they want to achieve, while also trying to claim the right to public goals that supply additional endgame scoring.
