MEGA HYPER GALACTIC CONQUEST
MHGC is your typical expand / grow / kill everyone else space conquest game. The name is derived from an old game I wrote and ran at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI or the 'tute) and HyperEconomic Diplomacy (a.k.a. GeoDiplomacy or Geodip). I was playing Geodip at the time I became motivated enough to ruin my life with this incredible time sink.

In the game, players attempt to balance expansion, capital investment, technology investment, and military conquest in order to be crowned "Grand Poohba of the Universe."
