Description Edit | History

This game is set in the Perry Rhodan universe, a hugely popular German space-opera book series published since 1961. The term "kosmisch" means "cosmic"; "Hanse" refers to the Hanseatic League, a Medieval trade network in Northern Europe. In the american translation of the book series the phrase "Die Kosmische Hanse" was translated as "The Cosmic House".

In this game the players take on the roles of traders who transport goods between planets. Occasionally one can carry also passengers, which brings additional yields. Players can invest in cargo space, transmitters or faster drives to improve their spaceships.

Heinrich Glumpler, the designer of the game, is a fan of Merchant of Venus, as you can see from this comment.

The artwork is by Swen Papenbrock, one of the illustrators of the Perry Rhodan book series.

This game is part of the Kosmos two-player series.


Game Summary
Place the 9 planet cards in a line. The goods cards are double-sided; randomize them, then place several on each planet grouped by type (but no more than 2/type/planet to start). Players' ships start on planet 1. Each has their own deck, shuffled; draw 5 card hand. The cards are mostly tech cards, which can give you ongoing power; or single-use cards (counter opponent's card by playing matching card yourself). Spend VP to play the cards.

On your turn, move your ship (costs less energy moving towards sun), pick up stuff (start game with only 1 cargo hold), deliver stuff. When you deliver, you flip the delivered cards over; any resulting matches are removed from game -- works as a game timer! You win by getting to target (75?) VP. If goods are gone first, most VP wins.

This is an expansion for the regular 2-player game. The zip files contains instructions for play and several jpgs that can be used to cut the necessary cards. This expansion has prototype status regarding the material - with other words: sorry, it does not look nice ;) Any feedback on this is highly appreciated.
