In the vastness of space, empires vie for control of strange, alien worlds. Using specialized armies of soldiers adapted to exotic environments, their war councils plan for the decisive moment that they will gain...
3-5 players compete with one another over several rounds to take control of 6 different alien homeworlds. Players take turns doing a variety of possible actions, including conquering planets, stealing other players cards, and reinforcing one of their captured worlds. A round of Planetary Control! continues until someone draws the `Ceasefire` card.
Every captured world is worth Victory Points, and the player with the most Victory Points at the end of a game of Planetary Control! is the winner.
