2 Players.  30 Minutes.  55 Cards.


Exordium is a 2 player, 3X (Explore / Examine / Extract) board game comprised of multi-use cards.  Players are part of the Exordium Expedition, studying the exoplanet and its Artifact; a towering piece of architecture that may be biological, or the work of some forgotten species.


Players will Explore by placing Outposts on the board, Examine by sending Drones to the Artifact, and Extract resources from the Terrain they’ve explored, gaining points for each. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Exordium is a board game that uses cards in place of other components.
