Greater Than Games Announces Exoplanets Game License for North America
St. Louis, MO, USA, and Wrocław, Poland - February 22nd, 2016
Greater Than Games LLC is proud to announce a licensing agreement with Board & Dice SC of Poland to bring Exoplanets to North America. Exoplanets is designed by Przemysław Świerczyński, and was released and completely sold out at Essen Spiel in 2015.  Greater Than Games will be bringing Exoplanets to Kickstarter in mid-2016 with special promotional expansion items and variant play not available in the first printed edition.
Exoplanets is a dynamic game for 2-4 players, wherein each player contributes to the creation of an entire planetary system. Each player’s role in Exoplanets is to expand the system by adding new planets, create and evolve life forms, and fulfill various tasks. To fulfill these tasks, you will manipulate the planetary system in any way necessary, potentially altering the relations between planets and possibly even the life-giving star at the system’s center.
In Exoplanets, players will use their terraforming skills to create planet interdependencies which will provide valuable resources. These resources will allow players to create new life on the planets’ surfaces, and help them to evolve those life forms into new species. While developing the solar system, players will also obtain space tiles which will allow them to influence planets, possibly making the game easier for themselves or more difficult for their opponents.
Eventually the available collectable energy of the star will be depleted, signaling the end of the game. A player wins by having the most Creation Points after the star is depleted. Points are gained for the creation and development of life on planets and for the execution of unique goals that are discovered and achieved during the game.
The team at Greater Than Games LLC is excited to bring this game to more tables in North America, and is closely working with Board & Dice SC to develop the advanced variants and rulebook clarifications for this special 2nd edition. Both Greater Than Games and Board & Dice are proud that the initial launch of Exoplanets has received an extremely positive reaction from the board game community, as well as an official “Seal of Approval” from leading board game reviewer Tom Vasel.
