4000 AD - An Interstellar Conflict Game
Publisher: Waddingtons, 1972
|Board Game||Strategy||2 to 4||10+ Years||No dice||No|
4000 AD is a classic game of strategy set two thousand years in the future. Humans are colonising planets in other star systems light years away. The stars named on the board are actual, adding a sense of realism to the game. Players need to gain planets, utilise their resources to build battle fleets and then conquer the empires of their opponents - before they are conquered. The game's original feature is the hyper-space movement system - no one cane be sure where the others are headed.
4000 AD has no chance element. Two to four players may play independently or in alliance with others.
