This game is a real boon for those who like to play monopoly. Long-awaited continuation of a big business is finally realized.

A monopoly in the real estate is already set long ago. This is not true for space. Space is a quite unmastered area.

The purpose is simple: to bring to ruin the opponents and remain the only monopolist in Space.

This game looks much like an original monopoly: there are sectors in the game, different events, opponents and even absolutely realistic dice. This game can be played by from one to six players at a time. Note that they can be both human-players and computer-opponents. You can choose the complexity level (beginner, professional) if playing against a computer.

Excellent graphics! The game is developed in a 3D space. You manage not a usual wooden chip, but a real spaceship. You can play for one of six races, each having its unique culture and traditions.

So put off all Your proceedings for a couple of days, and go ahead, start Your engines!

It is possible to play both against a computer and against a man «at one computer». I.e. you can call Your friends to associate over a cup of tea and play «Space monopoly».

In order to set a game against a computer or a man, take advantage of «Player type» setting.

To delete or add a player you can take advantage of «Add player», «Delete player» buttons. These buttons are located in the lower part of a screen.

As soon as a new game is set properly, push the button «Begin».

You appear in an untapped space. And soon you are at the «Start» point.

At the beginning of a game Your opponents and You are placed on a starting ground. Now you are ready to move by turns for the space conquest. You can define moves sequence depending on the playing icons location order on the right of a screen.

Each icon contains information about the chosen players: logotype, color and name. It also indicates the current financial status and amount of points collected.

Rules and game process

Commonly each gaming process is divided into three stages.

First stage – conquest of planets. An this stage you must buy out as many planets as possible. The more influential planets you buy out, the easier it is for you to build the strategy of conqueror.

How to set off for a conquest? It is very simple!

You just roll dice as soon as it is Your turn to move. To do this push the button «Roll Dice».

Look! Two dice fall on a playground.

We will see the value and count up a sum on dice after every roll. This sum determines how far Your ship will fly.

When landing on a planet (depending on the planet status) You will have to:

  • buy planets or special bases
  • pay rent when visiting smb. else’s planet
  • pay fines or get rewards
  • miss several moves
  • get 200$ of a financial help

If you visit a free inhabited planet (planets are painted different colors) or a special planet (planets with edifices) you can purchase them or buy them by auction.

To purchase a planet push «Buy».

To buy a planet by auction press «Auction»

Buying by auction is good when you are sure Your opponent has no interest or is not able to purchase the planet put up for auction. Then you can save money considerably on a planet purchasing. Also if you do not have cash on hand or have no interest in the planet you can sell it by auction.

When the building is Yours, the indicator of Your color is set on it as well as Your «Galactic space station».

Your domains are represented opaque on the cards panel.

You can always obtain any information about a planet on the cards panel.

If any of Your opponents takes ground on Your station, he will be under an obligation to pay you rent for the visit of the station. But be careful, you also will have to pay rent for the visit of the opponents’ stations.

If the identical number of points fell out on both dice, the ship will relocate in accordance with the indicated amount of points, whereupon you can execute necessary actions when landing on a planet. Then you must roll dice again.

Second stage – rigging bases with rockets. Look at the playing field. All planets are painted some color. There are two or three planets of the same color. This group is named «Related union» or «Color sector». As soon as one player possesses all planets from the same color sector, he is able to build rockets on those planets. Rockets multiply Freight of the station considerably. To build rockets is the most reliable and true method to defeat Your opponents.

As soon as you buy out all planets of the same sector, «Building» button becomes accessible. It is assigned for setting rockets at Your stations.

When pressing this button the cards of those planets will be represented, where the option of building rockets is activated.

Choose a planet and click on the proper card. You will see the planet where a rocket is set on. A dialog box with a comprehensive data about a planet will also be exposed. The number of rockets set, the present Freight and all possible Freights are represented in this dialog box.

You can set up to four rockets at each station.

Third stage – the Titans war. Presently when you are a monopolist and rockets are set on Your planets, you are eager to achieve a victory. However it is quite a difficult task. Most likely Your opponent has also managed to set a monopoly in a few sectors by now. Watch out! You have to avoid enemy planets. But what to do if you did land on a hostile planet and owed a pretty penny? You must get rid of negative balance by all means, otherwise you lose.

In order to get rid of negative balance you can either sell one of Your rockets or mortgage the whole planet. If you decide to mortgage a planet, this planet will not bring you a freight. You won’t be able to control it, until You buy it back from a bank. Planets you pawned can be bought back only by You, and be sure, Your rivals won’t be able to encroach on Your domain, though they will freely walk about there paying no Freight to You.

To mortgage a planet click «Mortgage».

Only the planets You can mortgage to the space bank will be displayed on the cards panel. As soon as You click on the planet the bank withdraws the card confirming proprietary right for a planet and gives credit. You will also obtain a card giving the right to buy back the planet.

Such cards are marked red.

Trade

You can offer a mutually beneficial exchange to any player. You can propose money or cards confirming proprietary right for a planet in exchange.

To start trade click «Trade»

Then choose a player You want to trade with.

The Trade dialog box will be displayed:

In this box you choose objects for an exchange then click «Offer». If Your opponent likes this offer, he clicks «Accept», and the bargain will be concluded. If the offer doesn’t suit Your opponent he will click «Dispute» and offer you his own trade offer. If you offered a quite humiliating bargain or the player is tired of concluding bargains, he escapes the trade by clicking «Finish».

End of the game

If a player owes more than he can pay, he destroys his planets, and is dismissed. As soon as all Your opponents declare defeat, you remain the only winner. The bank pays You a loser’s full sum of debt. As soon as you become a winner of the game Your name is added to the table of records. You are proclamed the best warrior!
