It's great. And everything will kill you.

Had been wanting this for a while and whilst the rules take work to learn - playing solo you need to internalise the rulebook, the expansion rulebook AND the solo rulebook - it is worth it. (I'm talking about base game and the expansion together here.)

If you play a full length game the system grows and changes around you. Your strategy changes as more opportunities appear and others diminish or vanish. It is a dice chucker and the risks you take feel very real. I was killed by comets 3 times in the first 4 turns in one game. You learn to manage those risks but you can wind up needing to take a punt to make a big turn come together and the feeling of jeopardy is intense! I've already lost hours and hours to this game but i never notice the time passing. It has a real sense of humour about itself as well - the descriptions of each ship's upholstery are hilarious!

In short, it's the big fun thinky space game I've been looking for for ages!

Xia: Legends of a Drift System is a 3-5 player sandbox style competitive space adventure. Each player starts as a lowly but hopeful captain of a small starship.

Players fly their ships about the system, completing a variety of missions, exploring new sectors and battling other ships. Navigating hazardous environments, players choose to mine, salvage, or trade valuable cargo. Captains vie with each other for Titles, riches, and most importantly Fame.

The most adaptive, risk taking, and creative players will excel. One captain will rise above the others, surpassing mortality by becoming Legend!

Customize: Each player begins the game by choosing and customizing a Tier 1 starship. Invest all your money in engines and be a rapid, yet fragile, explorer. Put all your credits into an uber missile and watch other players flee in terror. Get a small engine and save space and credits to invest in buying and selling cargo. Or create a well rounded ship, ready for anything. In Xia, the choice is always yours.

Adapt: The goal of Xia is to become the most famous captain. Completing missions, besting ships in combat, purchasing higher tier ships, selling Cargo Cubes and claiming Titles are all ways that players can earn Fame Points. The best pilots will adapt to their surroundings, making snap judgments and changing plans on-the-fly. If you can think on your feet, you'll do well in Xia!

Sandbox: The real fun of Xia is that each game will be different. There is no set direction of play, players may choose to be peaceful traders, fierce pirates, workers, miners, opportunists, etc. The game board is randomly laid out and explored each time you play. Players might choose not to explore at all, creating a tiny arena for swift and deadly combat, or explore all 19 sectors and have a large play-scape to exploit. It's up to you!

 

3-5 PLAYERS | 60-180 MINS | AGES 12+
