Game Overview

The heyday of the Star Union has come to an end. Setting off massive Gravity-Bombs designed to create spatial rifts to new worlds led to the Collapse, and many planets were cut off from the rest of the Empire.

The surviving factions began gradually rebuilding civilization and rediscovering lost technology. Being once part of a single state, they will have to meet again and find out who is worthy of succeeding the great power.

You are the Commander of one of the six surviving groups that have set out to explore the once-abandoned parts of the Star Union. Your expedition will explore seven planets in search of valuable resources and technology, battle hostile units, and seize landmarks. Will you be able to create a new world from the shards of the old Empire?

Age of Wonders: Planetfall is an exciting card strategy based on the world-renowned video game. It is played over 7 rounds, and a new planet is explored each round. Each player may conduct 2 explorations on every planet. The players will gain Empire points by defeating Units, studying Technology, claiming Landmarks, and running Operations on those planets. At the end of the game, players will score Empire points for meeting certain conditions listed on a particular Goal sheet. Whoever scores the most Empire points wins.

Age of Wonders: Planetfall gave us that sense of “Let’s play once more” which is always a pleasant feeling!

With tons of different end goals, an overload of combos and enough cards, you will have a new adventure every game.

I really enjoy the variability within the game itself. Players have a variety of characters to choose from with two-sided boards, extra cards within each round where not all cards are shown each game, and a variety of end-game bonus points that can be changed each game.

Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a cosmic journey worth taking, especially if you’re into games that balance strategy with accessibility. Great for quick sessions that still offer a satisfying strategic depth.

Super streamlined drafting game with set collection. Cards offer abilities but also points. It is tricky to balance your resources and what you want to buy. Played with 2 players so far but it will shine with more I just know it. I look forward to more plays!

It can be a very enjoyable filler – it’s well put together and offers an interesting puzzle to solve for the time invested. It’s definitely worth trying out! 7.5/10
