The wiki about the board game Cosmic Encounter that anyone can edit (even you)!
247 articles since July 13th 2009

Welcome! This wiki intends to be an all-in-one source for everything Cosmic Encounter. While it doesn't claim to be the authority on every single expansion and alien ever published (there are sites such as The Warp that already do that sort of thing much better), it does aim to gather information about the game and its expansions and official variants both current and historical and collect them all in one place.


Anti-Matter (FFG)

Anti-Matter is an alien with the power of negation. Whenever it's a main player, the lower total wins the encounter as opposed to the higher one. To aid in this, Anti-Matter's ships subtract from its total instead of adding, as do allied ships on both sides. Anti-Matter acts as a significant foil to powerhouse aliens such as Virus and Warrior, but it can become a liability given the wrong hand. Anti-Matter debuted in the second Eon expansion and rose to being a starter alien in each edition since.
