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 provides a full, empire-building experience in under an hour. Create synergies between your cards – increase your resource production with more planets, build a powerful fleet of ships, and develop different technologies to build powerful combos. With almost 250 cards in the box, you have many scoring strategies and great replayability.

There are two ways to play every card. You can place cards on the Logistics side to gain ongoing bonuses, or the Operations side which provides a one-time opportunity. If you place them on the Logistics side, Ships allow you to play more cards in the round, Technologies gain you unique abilities, and Planets produce one type of Resources. Remember, each of these cards can be used a totally different way! Playing cards on the Operational side give you an immediate boost: Ships allow you to attack the Alien Systems or other players, Technologies provide powerful end game scoring bonuses, and Planets produce additional resource cards and sometimes even Victory Points!
