Cosmic Encounter® Connector is the Tabletop Simulator version of the award winning game where you become an alien with a special power to break the rules. No two games are the ever same!

Cosmic Encounter® Connector 3-5 players

Build a galactic empire…

In the depths of space, the alien races of the Cosmos compete with each other for control of the universe. Alliances form and shift from moment to moment and cataclysmic battles send starships screaming into the warp.

Players choose from dozens of alien races, and each has its own unique power to help it build an empire that spans the galaxy. Many classic aliens from the original 1977 edition of this beloved game, such as the Oracle, the Loser, and the Clone, return, and newly discovered aliens, including Remora, Mite, and Tick-Tock, join the fray.

This classic game of alien power and competition is now available in a virtual universe on Steam. The Cosmic Encounter® Connector on Tabletop Simulator features 50 alien races, 50 flare cards to boost their powers, 100 flying saucer ships, and all of the premium components from the Fantasy Flight Games board game edition.
