TAU CETI: Planetary Crisis is a 1-5 player competitive and cooperative 4X game centered on an economic engine, asymmetric powers, and strategic manipulation. TAU CETI tells a story of a newly formed alliance between several alien factions in a time of galactic declension, who compete for influence as they lead their civilization through a crisis-ridden star system.

With multiple paths to victory, you are free to Explore the mysterious outer reaches of the star system for knowledge, Recruit Specialists to help you Resolve crises, exploit opportunities through Trade, buy/sell commodities as the market fluctuates across planets, complete Interplanetary Missions for money, Build orbitals and defend them against enemies, acquire Exotic Technologies, and Upgrade your starship's systems for greater advantages as you navigate the cosmic environment.

TAU CETI has all the elements of a 4X game, but allows you to advance at your own pace with à la carte advanced rules, and can be played in 1-2 hours. There are multiple ending conditions, which strengthens the cooperative element of the game.

The player with the most Galactic Points (GPs) at the end of the game is declared the winner, and earning GPs requires both strategic and tactical planning. The player who is able to assemble the best crew, play to their strengths, mitigate threats, exploit opportunities and manipulate resources to their advantage will succeed and lead the TAU CETI Authority into the future!
