In the far future, long after humanity has become extinct, the universe is led by the 'Galactic Council of Eldars' who maintain the fragile peace between the various races who each seek to overthrow the others.
Now long range sensors have detected an ancient shipwreck bearing the name 'Andromeda' entering the system, containing the technology of The Ancients that could provide one race the edge it needs to rule unchallenged. The Galactic Council has granted permission to explore the Andromeda to a team of scientists composed of all races. They will all go there together but their interests and goals couldn't be further apart.
Andromeda is a board game with an interesting action selection system. Dice are rolled each turn to determine the actions available to all players that round. The first player from the previous round then assigns 2 or more of these dice to a card numbered 1 to 4, and 'offers' it to the player on his left. That player may choose to accept the dice which will grant them the use of those actions this round, while the card will determine their position in the turn order. If they refuse, the offering passes to the next player. Should it return to the first player, they must accept the offering!
