A momentous occasion has occurred! The Cosmic Citizenship Council has announced it will allow two new alien species to join its ranks! However, the Council forgot to make two copies of the filing form, meaning really only one species can join… A duel is the only way to see which species truly deserves to join the ranks of the esteemed Council. To prove their worth, each side must race to gain control of a minimum of five planets. The winner will become a Certified Civilization, while the loser will fade into intergalactic obscurity. Now, the battle is on in Cosmic Encounter Duel!
