If you like hilariously ridiculous games Cosmic Encounter is the one for you. The banter at the table, the bluffing, the weird way the rules are set out all make for excellent entertainment.
We found an instructional and amusing (in our opinion) video on YouTube for you. Others are available of course, but they can often be lengthy and a tad tedious to watch. In keeping with the spirit of the game, this one is ridiculous.
You can also purchase “Expansion cards” for keeping your friends on their toes. There are currently six expansions for Cosmic Encounter: the latest, Cosmic Eons, arrived at the start of 2017. Make sure you scroll to the “Frequently Bought Together” section at the bottom of the product page.
