Cosmic Encounter | Published 22 July 2014

This September 19 – 21, CosmicCon is a celebration of all Cosmic Encounter fans!

Presented by Future Pastimes and taking place at the Fantasy Flight Games Center in Roseville, MN, CosmicCon is your opportunity to enjoy a full weekend of Cosmic Encounter with the game’s original designers and the fan designers responsible for the game’s fifth expansion, Cosmic Dominion. Design. Connect. Play. Display. Win!

Connect with a Cosmic Community

At CosmicCon, you’ll have the opportunity to hobnob with many of the galaxy’s brightest stars.

The game’s original designers Bill Eberle and Peter Olotka will be playing the game throughout the weekend, they’ll explain how they approach game design, and they’ll discuss upcoming expansions and other game ideas.

The fan designers of Cosmic Dominion will also be on hand throughout the weekend, as will former Fantasy Flight Games designers – and Cosmic Encounter fans – Kevin Wilson and Jay Little.

Moreover, Tom Vasel of Dice Tower will be interviewing gamers through the convention, and a number of other Cosmic Encounter fans will check in via Skype. These include Hugo award-winning author David Brin and Richard Garfield, the designer of Magic: The Gathering.

Games and Contests

Of course, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to play Cosmic Encounter all throughout CosmicCon. The convention will incorporate all five of the game’s expansions, including Cosmic Dominion, and run the gamut from the Newbie Table, where you can learn to play, to the Cosmic Encounter tournament, in which you can try to establish your dominance as the best Cosmic Encounter player in the world.

The fun and games of CosmicCon aren’t just limited to its tables of Cosmic Encounter, however. The convention will also feature an Alien Design contest and a collection Home Brew Cosmic Encounter creations, which will be featured in the Gaming Center’s glass display cases. Prizes will be awarded to the winners of the Alien Design contest and the best Home Brew creations!

Make Your Travel Plans Today

Throughout the convention, you’ll be able to take advantage of the Fantasy Flight Games Center’s well-lit gaming space, full-service café, and full retail store, where you can pick up all your favorite Cosmic Encounter expansions or browse for new titles.

CosmicCon runs this September 19–21 in Roseville, MN. Tickets are available via the CosmicCon website on Eventbee. Make your travel plans today!

Cosmic Encounter is a classic board game that puts players in charge of the fate of an alien race. Three to five players each strive to be the first to conquer five enemy colonies and establish themselves as the dominant life form in the galaxy. With over 50 alien characters to choose from, no two games are ever the same.
