Space Empires: Close Encounters is the first expansion to Space Empires: 4X. Alien races meet up-close as they encounter each other for the first time in ship Boarding Engagements and planetary invasions with four different types of Ground Troops. This expansion takes advantage of the streamlined nature of the game system to add more technology and cool sci-fi details in very simple ways. While it is designed to be used as a whole, the expansion is modular, and players can choose to use only the parts that they like.
The strengths and weaknesses of each alien empire are brought out with 25 different Empire Advantages. Also included is an Experience System so that your ships become more proficient over time. There is a big benefit if you can keep your ships alive! This expansion adds more counters of each ship type to accommodate groups at different experience levels. Military Academies in your empire can give your ships a head start in accumulating experience. Titans, super large ships beyond dreadnought, make their appearance and can carry both fighters and can destroy planets, but have liabilities too. Unique Cards can be gained by conquering the non-player Alien planets. Facilities built on planets, Flagships, React Technology, and much more are all in this game expansion.
Many new scenarios have been added to the game. Solitaire Scenarios include a different alien empire solitaire scenario, and also a new kind of scenario where a player can attempt to fight off an invading mass of Space Amoebas.
The game system is exactly the same, but more awesomeness has been added.
