Designer's Diary - by Bill Eberle & Peter Olotka


Cosmic Dominion was designed by the Fans of Cosmic Encounter. Hundreds of fans were involved at the level of commenting and suggesting. All of the work was done online via the Cosmic Encounter Facebook page, with emails and shared files on Google Drive. The project spanned several years and brought an unprecedented 30 new aliens to the game. Cosmic Dominion’s collection of aliens are must haves for any Cosmic player.

The Cosmic Dominion effort was spearheaded by fans Bill Martinson, Jack Reda and Jefferson Krogh. The three fans had never even met in person until they arrived at Future Pastimes’ 2014 CosmicCon at Fantasy Flights’ new gaming center. Jack Reda won the CosmicCon tournament playing Aristocrat.
