Spiral Arm is a play-by-mail strategy game of space exploration, diplomacy and tactics. You start with a single fully developed star, a small fleet of warships and a map showing all 650+ stars in the game. From there, you expand your empire until you contact other players, build star ships, colonize new stars, and make (and break) alliances in order to achieve an alliance victory.
