Twilight Imperium is a crazy huge space conquest boardgame. Whenever I want to teach someone new to play it, they get so overwhelmed they don’t have a chance to remember any of the rules. So I made this player aide, which makes things a little easier.

The player aide comes in four pages; it’s intended to have pages 1-2 printed on either side of one sheet, and 3-4 on another.

Pages 1-2 are essential information. There’s a tech tree, a list of ships, a guide to you can do each turn and victory conditions.


Pages 3-4 contain more advanced and specific rules which aren’t as necessary. The strategy cards included here are personal preference and I would avoid using the leaders with first-time players.
