After millennia of shifting dominant civilizations, wars and industrialization, Homeworld became a planet that couldn’t sustain its population... Off-world migration was the last hope. When your Homeworld is nearing its demise, it is time to saddle up your rocket ship and explore the neighborhood in nearby space.Number of Players: 2-6
PARSEC is a tile placement game of discovery and exploration in outer space for 2 to 6 players. Featuring easy mechanics and a nimble pace, Parsec is a truly teachable game for everyone. It boasts rich, compelling Euro-style competitive gameplay as each player races to improve their positions to garner the most points and technology progress between scoring rounds. Careful placement of drawn tiles featuring sections of planets, nebulae, asteroid fields, and more is half the game, while maneuvering your rocket and carefully assigning its compliment of robots for control of these key locations is equally important. Asteroids and a presence on opponent-dominated Planets garner Credits used to purchase additional actions. After the last Planet is completed, a final scoring round takes place and the winner determined.
This is your chance to save the denizens of Homeworld; explore PARSEC today!
