The Silver River is a rich, full-featured 4X game that takes place in our own galaxy, The Milky Way, known in many Eastern cultures as The Silver River. The playable races included are those that many believe actually exist in our galaxy, each one with different strengths and abilities. The game plays 1-4 players in 90 to 160 minutes.
The design goal of The Silver River was simple: Provide thematic gameplay that includes all the rich options, and multiple paths to victory that 4X lovers savor, but do so in about 2 hours.
In the middle of The Silver River lays Sagittarius A*, a place from which deadly space monsters emerge. These creatures are usually moon-sized or larger, and provide a great deal of treasure to those strong enough to defeat them. Go it alone, or team up with other players to take them down. Each space monster includes cards to support 3 different levels of strength, and a wonderfully detailed, HUGE, plastic miniature!
