Wizkids announced a new trading and negotiation game called Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant. Sidereal Conflict, aside from having a lengthy sub-title, is a game all about making deals to share resources to grow and expand your part of the galactic empire. The game plays up to nine people and in the box there are nine different alien races, each with their own strengths and abilities. During the game everyone will negotiate with everyone else to secure resources, ships, colonies, or even the temporary use of technology. This trading is the core of the game because while you improve and build up your empire with received resources, any new technology you acquire is shared with everyone at the table at round’s end. This means to win you have to not only build well, but negotiate well to get the resources you need to win. In the end you will have to convert resources to points, and whoever has the most points will be the winner.
Look for this game on store shelves in July of this year, and you can find out more about the game by reading the below press release.
Hillside, NJ — WizKids is excited to announce the upcoming board game, Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant, designed by TauCeti Deichmann! In this singularly unique trading and negotiation game, 4-9 players will need to competitively scheme and create mutually beneficial agreements to keep their economies thriving.
In Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant each player must choose one of the nine unique and asymmetrical alien races that have come together to form a trade federation in their quadrant. Over the course of the game, each race must trade and negotiate with the rest to acquire the resources necessary to fund their economy and allow it to produce goods for the next turn. As no race has the ability to thrive on its own, Sidereal Confluence has a uniquely cooperative feel and with almost all simultaneous action, the game play is always moving.
The ultimate goal in Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant is to gain victory points, which are acquired by researching technologies, using your economy to convert resources to goods, and converting your leftover goods into points at the end of the game.
Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant will be available in limited quantities this June at Origins Game Fair and will be released in stores in July. Pre-order a copy from your friendly local game store today!
