Galactic Conflict is a strategic space game a little bit like Starweb but without the character types. Everyone gets points for the same thing: Civilian Projects. The object is to have the most points when the game ends on a specific turn (secretly decided at the beginning of the game and not revealed until the game ends.) You start with one planet and a complete map of the galaxy (each game has a different map). As your empire grows, you get more industrial capacity. With this industry, you can build Civilian Projects to get victory points, defense forces to protect your Civilian Projects from enemy capture, or attack forces to take Civilian Projects away from your neighbors. Movement is limited to three sectors per turn, but you can build gates for instant transport between any two of your worlds.
