Explore the galaxy! Expand your faction! Exterminate opposition! Exploit their weaknesses! And acquire the ultimate prize – Alien Artifacts! Couple months ago we were at Dice Tower Con. One of the biggest board game convention. We were there… we and Alien Artifacts. That was 4 long days, where we presented our 4x card game. The card game where you can build a Ship, explore new Planets, develop Technology and fights with Aliens. This movie shows the first day of our presentation. Enjoy! Alien Artifacts is a science fiction card game in which you play as an interplanetary corporation, sending your research vessels into uncharted space to expand your knowledge and power. Build your ships, research new technology, and explore the galaxy for anything — or anyone — you can exploit. The remains of an ancient race are there to be conquered.
Alien Artifacts arrived! Our big release on Essen 2017 is in our hand. Now we need to start to send pre-order copies to you! You will soon be able to play Alien Artifacts 4-X card game 🙂 Also, we received a couple of ideas for Robinson Crusoe contest! Now it’s time check all these scenarios very carefully. All of these ideas are awesome but we need to choose one winner. It’s really hard 🙂

I remember it as if it is yesterday. It was a game event in a city near by. The event was small, and pretty much nobody came. I was bored to death. We were sitting at the table chatting. Suddenly, without any warning, he asked me to play his prototype. ‘It is published by Trefl later this year’ he said. He was still play-testing and looking for feedback. My whole body screamed ‘No!’ I smiled and said: ‘Sure.’ We played. It’s not that long game as I was afraid. We were done in a half an hour. ‘How long we know each other?’, I asked him. He looked at me surprised. He said nothing. ‘We met for the first time in Cracow, in Szeherezada store, late 1999 when I was presenting Portal magazine. We know each other for 16 years now.’, I said. He nodded. ‘So why the fuck you went with this prototype to my competitor?’ I ...
