CONNECT 

Hobnob with the guys above, and with Cosmic Dominion fan game designers, Bill Martinson, Jack Reda and Jefferson Krogh along with former Fantasy Flight Cosmic designers Kevin Wilson and Jay Little as you circulate through the CE Designers' Fair.


Cosmic Encounter with Tom Vasel of Dice Tower as he interviews gamers during the con.


Interact with Special Guests via Skype featuring Cosmic Encounter® fan David Brin.  HUGO award winning author of Existence and numerous other science fiction novels.  


"I love Cosmic Encounter.  Completely apart from the space/aliens aspect is the brilliant notion -- wholly original -- of having a game with a basic rule set... then allowing different players to break each and every individual rule.  It is probably the most original game concept in 100 years." - David Brin


Richard Garfield, designer of Magic the Gathering! Richard is a long time Cosmic Encounter player and in a 2014 eurogamer 
interview Richard said: "Good game design is about empathy - designers should always be thinking about the experience of the people playing, no matter who they are."

"Cosmic is the only game I played so much that I had to wash the cards" - Richard Garfield


Skype with the 19 Cosmic Dominion fan alien designers in Group Skype calls.
