Micro Space Empire is a short “express” type game for one player. It was an entry in the QPnP (Quick Print and Play) contest; it is designed to be portable and easily constructed (less than 20 cards to print, plus a player mat).
The player is the ruler of a single solar system. There are ten other systems available to conquer and each system has its resistance to conquest and can provide resources to your expanding Empire. Resources are used to enhance your military and research new technologies. However, creating a vast interstellar Empire is not without its challenges; events such as revolts and invasions can pose obstacles to your rule.
The object is to survive and accumulate as many victory points as possible before time runs out.
