In Sovereign Skies you go planet-hopping with your mothership on a rondel in Space. It's a euro strategy game, which is fitting, as games are the only space race we can win against the other superpowers. You build bases, recruit senators and try to get the loyalty of the people to beat a robot player on victory points.

Sovereign Skies is back on Kickstarter three months after cancelling their first try. They've dropped the spaceship miniatures and the price, and added game content. The campaign will run for four weeks.
