Every game begins the same way. You place a base on the edge of a randomly generated hex map, and pore over a hand of beautifully illustrated cards. With luck they’ll be some recon units there, speedy spider bots, dinos, buggies or bat-things perfect for probing the surrounding wilderness. A few turns further on and you’ll probably have some hero cards. These named bigwigs, each with their own specializations, lead armies, conduct research and oversee the erection of the resource-harvesting buildings that fund all unit actions, and hand replenishment.
