Description from the packaging.

Reach for the Stars is Strategic Studies Group's all time classic game of space exploration and conquest. The third edition contains two great games in one; the original Reach for the Stars and an entirely new scenario, with lots of options for advanced play.

Whichever game you choose to play, you're in for a tough time. It's a four-cornered contest for domination of the galaxy and there's only one winner. The computer plays all places not taken by humans and it never gives anyone an even break.

To win a game of Reach for the Stars you must have explored all of the galaxy and colonized the choicest portions. You will have expanded your industry, engaged in frantic R&D, and produced a large space navy. This will have been employed in settling territorial disputes with your neighbors. As always, the person with the biggest navy gets to adjust the border.

It's not as easy as it sounds. Do the wrong thing and it could be three against one, especially if you're playing against Keating's Enhanced Veteran computer players. The just don't like you to start with, and can get really annoyed if you start adjusting borders. That's why there are Beginner and Experienced players on which to practice your galactic skills.

Whatever your qualifications as a space tyrant, Reach for the Stars is guaranteed to be totally addictive...
