Helios Expanse

Colonizing System Sol was doomed from the start. The initial steps leaving Earth1, centuries ago, were full of hope. The thrill of exploration and discovery was met with fierce competition between factions. The former sentiment propelled humans further into the universe, while the latter manifested in wasted resources, war, and destruction. Over three hundred years after the first moon walk, the human race had made it to the edges of the system, and in doing so, had used all the resources needed to sustain life for the next hundred. It was the twilight of everything, save one fissure of possibility…

Helios Expanse places you in control of an extrasolar civilization, competing for galactic supremacy against its rivals. A group of 3-6 players colonize habitable planets, research technologies, and build a military to wage war. The civilization that colonizes the most planets will emerge victorious and rule the galaxy.

 You are a faction of humanity, hurtling towards an unknown planetary jackpot with centuries of old grudges against the other key players and ships filled to bursting.

Program your card actions in advance, then play out each round, grabbing and colonizing as many planets as you can using movement, stealth, technology and military prowess.

Helios expanse is for 3-6 players and is an hour of heart pumping exploring, expanding, exploiting, and exterminating across the galaxy!

Mr. Rhee: Surviving the Nightmare World is a 2-6 player asymmetrical card game, where the one plays the hero and the many are the villains.
