The ancient Galactic Realm, ruled from the Core Worlds of the galaxy, is waning. Now, the barbaric kingdoms that lie beyond the galactic frontier are amassing their strength, choosing this pivotal moment to strike at the heart of the fading republic, establishing new empires built upon the ashes of decaying civilizations. But these outer systems are not yet strong enough to engage the forces of the Core Worlds directly. The young kingdoms must first gnaw at the edges of the crumbling frontier, developing new types of units and shrewder tactics. They must build up their energy resources to launch magnificent fleets and overwhelming ground forces. Then, when the time is right, they must strike at the galactic core itself, claiming the most exalted planets for themselves. The barbarian kingdom that achieves these goals will carve out the greatest empire in the galaxy.

Each player controls a barbarian Star Empire represented by many cards. Throughout the game, players will invade Worlds and draft new Units and Tactics into their Empires. Each card lists its Empire Points in the upper right corner. The player whose Empire contains the most Empire Points at the end of the game is the winner, and is crowned Galactic Emperor!

Core Worlds is a strategic deck-building card game for 2-5 players. Designed by Andrew Parks, Core Worlds brings deck-building to a new, more strategic, and more game integrated level. Players are required, not only to draft cards to build their decks, but they also must:

- invade Worlds to add to their Energy resources and Empires Points,
- deploy Ships, Troops, and Heroes to their Warzones so that they may strike at new Worlds at the appropriate time,
- manage the many resources of the game, such as Energy, Ground Strength, Fleet Strength, and Actions,
- research new technologies in the form of Tactics, which will enhance their invasion or resource management capabilities, and
- coordinate a strategy that will drive their Empire in the final invasion of the most lucrative parts of the Galaxy, the Core Worlds.

Core Worlds is in worldwide distribution and it is available from your friendly local or online game stores. If you can't find Core Worlds, ask your retailer to get it from their local distributor.

In this contest, you will be encouraged to learn a little bit about Core Worlds and Stronghold Games. Check out the questions, answer correctly, and you might just come away with some great games!

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

I cannot underscore how excellent this game is. It flew completely under my radar and I got it on a lark. It is one of my best finds of 2011, without a doubt.
