Among The Stars: Intelligence Agency Promo Cards

Among The Stars

Among the Stars takes place in a war-ravaged galaxy where the warring alien races have declared peace in the wake of a threat with the potential to destroy them all. An Alliance is established to build space stations throughout the galaxy in order to promote trade among the races, strengthen diplomatic relations, and defend against this impending threat.  Each player takes the role of one of those races trying to build the greatest space station. Through card drafting, the players select locations, and use these to build their station, scoring victory points based on the placement.  The construction lasts four years, and alien race with the most points at the end wins.

Among the Stars is a critically acclaimed game, which uses card drafting (like in “7 Wonders“).  It was originally published only in Europe by Artipia Games, and it has been unavailable in retail channels throughout the rest of the world.  Stronghold Games is proud to bring this game out for the North American, Asian, and Australian gamers!

All expansions for Among the Stars will be published by Stronghold Games as well, so stay tuned for the rest of this great game line!

Among The Stars: Revival

A new era has begun. The Alliance”s attempt to revive the worlds that were destroyed during the Purge was met with great success and the future looks bright for the first time. Those sectors that were abandoned before, have now become very active and are blooming with life.

Due to the increased traffic, the construction of new Stations in the area was deemed necessary. Once again, the alien races rush to build the best Space Station, in order to take advantage of the new opportunities that arise. To that end, Advisors are being sent by the Alliance to assist in the construction.

Among the Stars: Revival is a new expansion for Among the Stars, which can also be played as a standalone game for two players!

Among the Stars: Revival introduces brand new strategic two-player rules and exciting new mechanisms that add more interaction in the game and more things to consider when drafting a card.

Among the Stars: Revival includes exciting new features such as:

• 30 Brand new Locations – 15 Basic and 15 Special Locations (90 Location cards in total).

• New 2-player rules – more strategic and skill-testing especially for 2 players! These rules can also be used for Among the Stars base game.

• Spaceships – a new highly-interactive mechanic used by many of the new cards. It allows the players to put Spaceship tokens on the Stations, preventing anyone from building on those spaces.

• Advisors – a new module that can be optionally added in a base game of Among the Stars. It increases competition among the players in order to control Advisor cards that grant them special abilities as well as additional victory points.

Among the Stars: Revival can also be enhanced by using the miniatures from the Among The Stars: Miniatures Pack (available now separately).

The great game reviewer, Richard Ham (“Radho”) did a “Radho Runs Through” for Among The Stars: Revival. Of course, Radho loves the game!  You can watch his entire run-through of the game, or go directly to his final thoughts. Both of these are linked here:

Among The Stars: The Ambassadors

In order to assist in the construction of their space stations, each race has formed a team of ambassadors to visit other space stations in need. These ambassadors are willing to offer their services and strengthen the bonds of the newly-formed alliance.

Among the Stars: The Ambassadors introduces ambassadors with the addition of a fourth action that allows the players to invite them to their station and make them part of their Council. Each ambassador comes with a different ability, based on his race”s strengths and capabilities. However, there is limited space in each player”s Council so they have to choose wisely who they are going to invite.  Among the Stars: The Ambassadors greatly increases play interaction into this already exciting and tense game!

Among the Stars: The Ambassadors is a boxed expansion for Among the Stars featuring more than 150 new cards. Apart from the Ambassador cards, it includes more than twenty different new Locations, new Objectives, a new Alien race, and new Conflict sets (to replace the original one, rather than mix with).

The Among the Stars line of games is critically acclaimed, using card drafting (like in “7 Wonders“).  It was originally published only in Europe by Artipia Games, and it has been unavailable in retail channels throughout the rest of the world.  Stronghold Games is proud to bring this game out for the North American, Asian, and Australian gamers!

New Dawn (an “Among The Stars” Universe game)

New Dawn is a thematic sequel to Among the Stars and part of the Among the Stars Universe series. It is not an expansion. It is not a card-drafting game.  It is an entirely new game with great player interaction and conflict, as each player vies for control of a galactic sector.

And the story continues… Twenty years after the Alliance was formed, the cost of constructing new space stations is becoming unbearable. In order to improve the economy, the Alliance has decided to rebuild and recolonize some of the planets and space facilities who were abandoned during the war. By activating them once more, the Alliance is hoping to acquire the much needed funds and resources.

In New Dawn – a new game in the Among the Stars Universe of games – players take the role of Alliance officials. Their assignment is to explore and revive a galactic sector. By developing various technologies and dispatching ambassadors, each player has the chance to visit abandoned planets, military facilities and space stations and establish bases to maintain control. Competition is fierce, and each mistake in maintaining control can cost dearly.

It is a… New Dawn.  Will you be part of the solution, or will you be part of the problem?…
