Not long after harnessing space flight and taking their first bold steps into the great void, your people discovered an object on the far edge of their star system. An exploration fleet was assembled and sent to investigate. The object was a colossal gate, presumably built by an ancient alien species. When approached, it activated, opening a passage into uncharted space. This is where you take command.
Warpgate: Beyond is a fast-paced game of hand management and area control. Command your star fleets, establish colonies and engage your enemies in quick and decisive battles for the control of the galaxy.
It's quick. You don't need the entire day to conquer the galaxy. A two player game of Warpgate can be completed in 45 minutes.
It's fast paced. All you have to do on your turn is play one card and resolve one action. Next thing you know - it's your turn again!
It's easy to learn. Everything is streamlined. You'll probably know all the rules by the end of round two.
It's dynamic. Expect constant fighting, planets captured and re-captured. Combat is quick and simple, yet presents players with interesting choices.
It's replayable. There are 16 alien factions with unique abilities, 35 technology cards and randomizable player board to make sure that no game is the same.
No player elimination. Everybody is in it until the end. With secret mission cards every player can try and snatch that last-turn victory!
No dice. It's a battle of wits ;)

Gameplay and Rules Overview
The goal of the game is to score the most Victory Points by the end of the game. The main way to do this is by completing secret objectives (although there are other ways to score victory points).
During each round players take turns to play action cards, until each player plays 4 cards.
The later in the round a card is played, the more powerful it becomes. For example, a card may let you only deploy 1 ship if played on the first turn, but if you wait until turn 4, you will be able to deploy 4 ships, using the same card. Timing is important.
Combat is frequent and quick. Both sides draw two Tactic cards and play one simultaneously. Tactic cards modify the strength of your fleet and trigger a special ability. The better the ability, the lower the bonus to your fleet strength and vice-versa. The side with the highest fleet strength wins the battle and forces the enemies to withdraw, but losing the battle often lets you use a stronger special ability.
Two Solo-AI action decks are included in the expansion, enhancing the solo experience. (More details).
Objective cards now have partial completion mechanism, existing Objectives were reworked or rebalanced and new ones were added. (More details).
New Action cards support simultaneous play to eliminate downtime and speed-up the game even further. (More details).
