StarsteadDesigned by: Dan Cunningham
Starstead, a card-drafting/set-collection card game for 2-3 players, employs a novel card-drafting mechanic that allows players to Explore, Claim and then Settle in star systems of different types and sizes. Once enough of a type have been Settled, players can Utilize each system�s special ability to further their positions, scoring more points and expanding their empire!
Mechanically, players will be collecting sets of System cards and playing them in front of them. A player�s final score is based on the System type of which a player controls the lowest value, so an even balance of development is key. However if a player settles more than a critical value of a System type, he/she can utilize that type�s ability every turn for the rest of the game!
