In Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest™ you battle for the conquest of the galaxy. Your deck of cards represents your arsenal of weapons, containing spaceships you send to explore the galaxy, creatures you summon to fight for you, and actions you take to achieve all kinds of goals. Games are played by two or more players, each of whom has a customized deck of Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest cards. Each player starts the game on their home planet. When you conquer your opponent’s home planet, or gain control of over half the galaxy, you win!
What is a trading card game (TCG)?
Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest™ is a trading card game, or TCG, which means that it combines collectable cards with a strategy game. You build your collection of cards by buying products such as Booster Packs or Starter Decks as well as by trading your cards with friends.
The colors of conquest
Planets in Multiverse: Cosmic Conquest™ produce six types of resources, each represented by a color: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. The colors symbolize different styles of conquest, different philosophies and approaches of playing the game. Resources are used to play your cards.
Red is the color of military conquest. It builds effective weapons and machines, focuses on industrial production and efficiency of its personnel. Red has a straight forward approach to war: it prefers to jump straight into action and destroy their opponents outright. It relies on its cutting edge military equipment to accomplish its tasks.
Orange is the color of justice and honor. It has the strongest and best abled creatures, believes in honor, morality, and heroism. Orange prefers to fight its enemies one-on-one, in close combat when boarding enemy ships. It protects the weak and relies on the strength of its creatures to build impressive structures, which it uses to accomplish its tasks.
Yellow is the color of economic development. It exploits its citizens to gain resource and focuses on expanding its area of influence. Yellow avoids direct confrontations; it prefers arranging deals and diplomatic discourse, while expanding their area of influence in the galaxy. It relies on wealth and economic manipulation to accomplish its tasks.
Green is the color of expansion and growth. It makes allies out of enemies, turns hostile places habitable and populates them with life. Green is a pacifist color; it tends to deter enemies from fighting, while exploring the galaxy and gathering great amounts of resource. Green relies on its overwhelming numbers of allies and resources to accomplish its tasks.
Blue is the color of science and knowledge. It thinks its actions through, focuses on outsmarting its enemies rather than jumping head-first into battle. Blue designs its equipment to serve its needs; it thinks though its strategies and attacks only when it’s required. It relies on its vast intelligence and hi-tech equipment to accomplish its tasks.
Violet is the color of power at any cost. It uses weapons such as disease, corruption, and deception. It focuses on achieving its goals without a second thought about the consequences of their actions. It will pollute its planets just to produce resource, and exploit its own creatures for its needs. It will use any resources at its disposal to achieve its tasks.
