The Colony 2174 is a deck building and dice rolling game where you have to settle a new planet by building your four Colony structures using the rare resource Novinium.
The game is intended to be played by 2 to 4 players and a game normally takes between 45 and 60 minutes to complete.
The game is won by the first player who builds their 4 Colony structures: Reactor, Biodome, Portal, and Orbital Station.
You can lose the game by not building your Colony structures or ending up with no more structures of your own due to events that are triggered during the game.
The Structure Cards come in four different colors. This represents the various parts of the turn that the cards can be activated in.
Event Cards represent random events that occur on the planet, these events will come in to play when you are unable to roll an Activation Target on your turn during your Activation Roll.
Influence Cards represent the ability of the players to influence dice rolls of anyone (including their own dice rolls).
Players will typically have Novinium Tokens in front of them and this is referred to as the Novinium Stockpile.
Target tokens come in denominations of 1 to 16 units and represent the Activation Target that you want to target this structure on.
