ENGN Episode 69 – Solo! In! Space!

Time to blast off into space! We have three games for you this week which all take place in the so-called final frontier.

First up will be Kepler 3042 (1:41), a Euro-style game which emulates space exploration, but with a heavy Euro twist. Next, we talk about Alien Artifacts (14:15), a new empire building card game from Portal Games. Finally, for all you Star Trek fans, we give you our opinions on the Borg expansion for Star Trek Ascendency (26:35).

Finally, we canvassed some people online to see what they thought about space themes in games (42:48). What’s appealing? What turns people off? We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the threads for some very insightful answers.
