When humans first landed on the new world they knew it would be rough going. Building up fuel and ore reserves and constructing colony domes is hard work. But then the first alien artifact was discovered, and the secret tunnels, and the abandoned city. Now it's a race to colonize and control this Alien Frontier.
Alien Frontiers is a game of resource management, worker placement, and area control set in a retro-future scifi universe.
The dice you receive at the start of the game represent the spaceships in your fleet. Docking your ships at the orbital facilities will earn resources, expand your fleet, raid your opponents, discover alien technology, trade commodities, and build colony domes to land on the planet.
Winning will require careful consideration as you assign your fleet, integrate the alien technology and territory bonuses into your expansion plans, and block the other players from building colonies of their own.
Comes with a new double sided board which supports both standard D6s and Rocket Dice. Also includes the Alien Frontiers Upgrade Pack plus dock covers for the Rocket Dice. The Fourth Edition also does away with baggies, it now uses various tuck boxes to store its components. Finally, the backing of the Alien Tech cards was slightly altered.
