Galaxy Kings is a traditional Play-By-Email turn based space strategy for virtually unlimited number of players. Each player is a ruler of an independent nation, which is trying to dominate in the galaxy or even in the entire universe. The ultimate goal of the game is to become an Emperor of one or several galaxies and retain this title as long as possible. It's not easy to achieve even playing along, so the newcomers should challenge themselves first to survive in a hostile world, second: try to expand and join the 'Galaxy aristocracy', and gradually climb on this ladder to become a King. Because all the players are anonymous, each player can create a specific image of its nation, with its own moral and laws. Players may create alliances, make treaties, use intrigue and treachery. During the game the ruler of a nation need to make a research of the visible part of the galaxy, build transport and combat ships, colonize nearby star systems, develop technologies, make friendship with neighbours or defeat enemies. Each can use own strategy to succeed.
