With hundreds of different cards and three victory conditions, the number of strategies you can develop is endless. You can conquer your enemy's home world for a military victory, unearth ancient alien artifacts for a cultural win, or double-cross your way to a political victory at the Star Council. Cards include game elements such as ships, heroes, politicians, and special alien technologies, and the game models intrigue, economic planning, and both space and ground combat. With numerous maps to choose from you will never experience the same game twice in Star Chamber.

 

The original Star Chamber has received some incredible reviews, including Editor’s Choice from Computer Gaming World, a 92% from Ferrago, a 90% from Game Zone, and an 8.8 from Gamespot (with a perfect 10 in Gameplay)!  With this deluxe re-release the sites are set on even higher scores, both from reviewers and players alike.
