Master Of Orion: Conquer The Stars Let’s Play Giveaway


It’s that time again! When the going gets tough, the tough get MoO-y. Or they get free games. Or something like that…

In any case, the “patented” eXplorminate “Let’s Play Giveaway” is back, and this time we’re taking it to space. Just like last time, if you’re a member of our forums, post your Steam handle here. We’ll collect your names and add you to the list of potential winners. There is a twist to the format this time, however. In order to enter the contest you must enter your Steam name AND vote for the faction you think will win: the Alkari, Bulrathi, Human, Klackon, Meklar or Mrrshan. This is very important – Please select only one.


Things are looking dire!

The contest will be completed once Army Pea has won the game OR once he has been defeated. If you voted for the race that Army Pea picks OR the race that defeats him, you’ll have a chance to win the Collector’s Edition of Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars, which includes keys for original Master of Orion 1-3, the game’s soundtrack, a digital art book, plus a few other goodies.

Army Pea will be choose one of the races to play (using a very scientific randomization protocol he calls a 1d6) and will also be playing on the HARDEST/EXTREME/
CRAZY/STUPID difficulty level!!!

Watch in horror as your namesakes eXplore the stars, eXpand across the inky blackness, eXploit all the infinite vacuum, and then…*gasp* eXterminate each other!


Uh oh, this might be bad…

Sound good? Great! Sign up for the space adventure below. Just remember the rules.

In order to be eligible, you must:

  1. Be a verified member of our Steam group: eXplorminate
  2. Comment below with your Steam handle and your choice of one of the 6 races above! [Admission will close on September 2nd, 2016]
  3. Check for results. When the competition is over, you’ll have 48 hours to claim your prize, or it will be passed on to the next person.

That’s it. Seriously. Well, there’s more rules here, but otherwise that’s all you need to do.


Let’s hope you fare better.

  2. Steam: MatBailie
    Race: Alkari

    Supremacy (c64) grabbed me.
    MoO started an addiction.

    Many followed.

    I’m not sure any game with those names can ever live up to my nostalgic memories.

    But I’d love to give it a try!!! :)

  3. Steam: Phalanx60
    Race: Bulrathi

    I wanted to choose the Saakra because of Chris’ French rendition from the podcast. Alas, that race was not available to select for this contest.
