By Tom Seest
Xia is a board game that combines trading and strategy. In this game, players take on the role of merchants, workers, miners, and opportunists, establishing their businesses and establishing trade routes to earn money. The game board is randomly laid out each time you play, which means you can create a massive play scene.

Xia: Legends of Xia is a multiplayer sandbox-style competitive space adventure game. In Xia, each player begins as a lowly captain of a small starship in a freeform modular galaxy. The goal is to rise to the top and become the most famous space captain in the drift system.
Xia features a board with 21 sector tiles, each featuring space effects like asteroids, nebulas, space debris, planetary shields, and warp gates. There are also Xia star tiles, which take up the entirety of the tile.
Players in Xia begin as lowly starship captains who wish to become the most renowned person in the galaxy. As you explore the galaxy, you will earn fame and money by mining, trading, and completing missions. Each of these actions will earn you fame points, and there are nine ways to do so. The game is also quite flexible, as you can play for either five or twenty fame points. The winner is the player with the highest Fame Point total.
The game is designed for three or four players, but up to five people can also play. Xia is a sandbox game, so players will be able to create a wide playscape and develop their own characters. This makes it easy to modify the game and add new features. There are also several unofficial Xia:LoaDS mods on BGG that will allow you to add even more fun and strategy to the game.
Combat in Xia is a rewarding experience. Players can use missile launchers or blasters to attack their opponents. As players progress, they can invest in upgrades to their ships and upgrade their weapons. By using these weapons, players can attack other players within two to six places.

If you’re a fan of the Xia board game series, you’ll be pleased to know that there are new expansions available for the game. The first is the Legends of a Drift System expansion. In this game, Xia’s drift system has come into orbit with a dying star. The planets of this system now lie desolate and abandoned, waiting for exploration. The cold, unknown to mankind, fills the space and brings with it new danger and treasure.
Xia: Embers of the Forsaken Star is an expansive game of space simulation. Each player starts off with a modest ship. Players can equip their ship and explore the galaxy. They can also trade and attack other ships and non-player ships. Fame Points can be acquired by claiming titles and completing missions. The best pilots learn to adapt to their environment and change their strategies according to what’s going on around them.
Players start the game by customizing their Tier 1 starship. They can invest in uber missiles and engines. They can also save credits to buy cargo, making their ship a well-rounded ship. If you’re looking for a new board game to play with friends or family, Xia is an excellent choice.

Xia: Missions & powers is a mini-expansion that adds more powers to the game. The new powers are well-balanced with the existing ones and are more reliable, allowing players to use them multiple times per turn. These powers can be used by your characters to give them a great deal of extra flexibility in battle.
Xia: Missions & powers is a 45-card mini-expansion that adds 21 new ship ability cards and 32 new missions. The power cards are grouped into four types based on sector type. Each mission is more interactive and requires a specific sector to complete. The mini-expansion also comes with one new rule/credit card.
The game is a 3-5-player competitive space adventure. Players start out as the captain of a small starship with limited power. The game features both campaign and solo modes. The new expansion features 54 cards, new ship power permutations, and more interactive missions. Xia: Missions & Powers is a great way to add a little extra spice to the game.

Xia: Trading board game is a space and resource management game. You can choose to be a peaceful trader or a fierce pirate, or even a worker, miner, or opportunist. You can explore all 19 sectors and stack up to three abilities.
Xia has high-quality components, including custom metal coins, bright plastic cargo cubes, and twenty-one unique ship miniatures. Each of these ship miniatures has its own look and would benefit from expert painting. However, the game is not for beginners. You must be patient and be able to learn and master the mechanics of the game.
While you can avoid combat in Xia, it can also help you gain a strategic advantage. You can use blasters and missile launchers to attack other players. However, you need to be adjacent to the other player to be able to use these weapons. When using missile launchers, you can have a line of sight from two to six spaces.
Players can choose from four and five player games. Xia is best played with at least three players. You can play it with up to five players, but you should keep in mind that you should take action in turn. This way, you will avoid rushing your decisions, and you can take advantage of the many opportunities available.
The game is a space-based simulation game in which players take control of low-class starships and fight for fame. Fame is earned by completing missions, besting other ships in battle, and selling cargo cubes. As your fame grows, you can also claim titles.
