Beyond the Sun is a game of spatial civilization in which players collectively decide the technological progress of humanity at the dawn of the space era, while clasping to be the first faction in terms of economic development, science and galactic influence.
The game takes place on a variable number of laps until the players collectively claim a certain number of accomplishments at the end of the game. The winner is the faction that has the most victory points, obtained by looking for technologies, improving their economy, controlling and colonizing systems, and achieving various objectives and events throughout the game.
During a round, a player moves his action pawn towards an empty action space, then performs this action. It then leads its production phase, either by producing ore, or by increasing its population, or by exchanging one of these resources for another. Finally, they can claim up to a goal, if possible.
As players act, they are looking for new technologies that are available in four levels. Each technology is one of the four types (scientific, economic, military, commercial), and higher level technologies must correspond to one of the types of technologies that lead to it. Thus, the players create their own technological tree in each party, using these actions to increase their military force, to jump to different habitable exoplanetary systems, to colonize these systems, to increase their production of resources, to develop an Android technology that allows Population without population, and more.
