Race for the Galaxy is a sophisticated card game that allows players to craft vast galactic civilisations, developing their worlds to produce goods and develop technologies that in turn continue to help the game progress, and isn't that all you've ever wanted to do?! Whilst the iconography can be tricky to grasp at first, Race for the Galaxy truly rewards repeat play and as it becomes less daunting it really shines as a very clever game: getting good cards interaction and a strong engine built is very gratifying. You'll feel like the cat who got the cream once it's finished!
In the card game Race for the Galaxy, players build galactic civilizations by playing game cards in front of them that represent worlds or technical and social developments. At the beginning of each round, players each select, secretly and simultaneously, one of the seven roles which correspond to the phases in which the round progresses. By selecting a role, players activate that phase for this round, giving each player the opportunity to perform that phase's action. Race for the Galaxy is an award-winning card game and Rules of Play loves it!
