Image of a Cosmic Game
(Image is from Eon original version. Many things are different in other version such as the Destiny Pile uses Cards, not Discs).

The image at the left shows Greg and Peter Olotka demonstrating the Hasbro/Avalon Hill version of Cosmic Encounter at GenCon (10/20/00). The current version is the Fantasy Flight version which has a number of expansions. There is a nice article on the history of the game at: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016-03-06-the-making-of-cosmic-encounter-the-greatest-boardgame-in-the-galaxy.

I have developed these pages as an aid to the Players of the board game Cosmic Encounter, orginally put out by Eon and later produced by others such as West End Games, Mayfair Games, Hasbro/Avalon Hill, and now Fantasy Flight. There are already a couple of useful sites relating to Cosmic but none which include all of the available links and information. In particular, the expansions and other ideas posted to the newsgroup rec.games.board.ce are not available anywhere. Special thanks to Steven Staton, Kurt Adam, Bryan Bowe, Jack Reda, and all posters to the CE newsgroup.

For those interested in purchasing the game, you can purchase the currently in print Fantasy Flight version or you can search for an earlier long out-of-print version. The Eon set is out of print and generally very expensive when individuals do sell it. The Mayfair set and its expansions (CE) are also out of print and expensive to get when sold on eBay or the like.

Disclaimer: All of this material was freely posted to the newsgroup rec.games.board.ce or is available on the Web. Unless an author objects to his material being here(in which case I will try to remove it) this material is freely available for your use as long as you follow the restrictions which may be listed in a given article. NO guarantees are made to the accuracy, completeness, or anything else of any of this material. The material is distributed as is and may or may not be useful to you. In some cases, I have done some minor editing to individual articles, primarily to improve the formatting by restricting lines to 80 characters in length and moving the news headers to the bottom of the articles. In the very few places where I have actually added any material, it will be noted by the notation (ADF).
