The newly discovered “expanse” contains a wide variety of astronomical phenomenon in improbably close proximity. The race is now on to unravel the mysteries of this new microcosm, and prestigious research institutions with deep pockets are clamoring to be the first to know. New, highly experimental ships are commissioned that can quickly move between systems using powerful, volatile drives and reality altering engines. Can you pilot one to victory?
Players compete to be the first to explore eight of the nine phenomenon using cards drawn from a common deck. Different cards can provide fuel or special abilities, be played as anomalies, or be used to explore the different locations in The Expanse.
The Expanse is laid out differently every time you play, and each phenomenon will yield a different bonus when you explore it.
