Over the years, alien empires have risen and fallen. The Vacuum has failed to eliminate the Zombie, the Virus has spread far and wide, and the Loser has turned defeat into victory. 50 different species have tried to conquer the galaxy, and each have made their mark on the universe. Their warring has not gone unnoticed.
In Cosmic Incursion, the exciting expansion for Cosmic Encounter, 20 new alien races explode onto the galaxy! Players will face the sticky terror of the Fungus, scratch
their heads at the perplexing Magician, and shudder in fear as the Locust consumes their planets in one gulp.
Cosmic Incursion also makes the Cosmos even bigger, adding a 6th player to the game. Finally, as if that wasn’t enough, Cosmic Incursion introduces a new variant to the game – the reward deck, which offers exciting new cards such as kickers and rifts to those aliens who ally with the defense.

COSMIC INCURSION + 1 Additional Player
The template for FFG Cosmic Encounter Expansion sets was established with Cosmic Incursion. One of our favorite aliens, the Sniveler, was not in the base game of 50 and we wanted it included. Although Sniveler was not a particular favorite of FFG’s brilliant designer Kevin Wilson, he agreed to include Sniveler in this expansion set. Really, what’s better than a Cosmic game with an alien who can whine about stuff and force you to accommodate it, as a group, no less! It’s funny. And it’s Cosmic.
The big add to the game was the Rewards Deck which contained a bevy of powerful cards which tempted players to become defensive allies.
