I have CERTAINLY heard of 'Cosmic Encounter' in all its many forms since its original release in the 70s. Kinda' surprised Ben considers it to be a "Game You May Never Have Heard Of"...

Also amused that he pluralized the title in the episode ("Cosmic EncounterS") :-)

As for the new Fantasy Flight version, I think it is definitely the BEST edition to date! Components are fantastic, rules have been competently cleared up and it all looks terrific! Worst edition was that 4-payer, plastic-heavy AH abomination!!! Blech...

One funny aside (since it was mentioned in this episode)... I sold off my copy of 'Hunter Planet' today!!! :-)
