Interstellar Dwellers is a family friendly "4 X" game. Players use specialized ships to eXplore new planets, eXpand their colonies, mine and eXploit resources, and eXterminate nasty alien buggers.
The game features a novel Action Point Allowance System, in which you build up action point tokens based on what ships your opponents did not activate on the turns preceding yours. For example, if an opponent chose to eXploit, you will get a token on all but your eXploit ship. And the same will be true when you take your turn; what you choose will inversely benefit the other players.
You win by racing to place a number of victory markers into play. This can be done by building up space colonies on new planets, delivering resources to complete the galactic hub, and for blowing up those baddies that are always buzzing around!
