Race For The Galaxy

Race For The Galaxy

In Race for the Galaxy, players become Earth's former colonies that build intergalactic civilizations using game cards that represent worlds, or technological and social developments. They'll need to decide where and when to explore, settle, develop, trade, consume, and produce. Rounds are made up of 1-5 possible phases. During each round, players secretly and simultaneously choose one of seven different action cards and then reveals it. The phases revealed are then acted upon by players by using their action cards. Cards can be used as developments or worlds to be placed, as money, or as goods to be consumed or sold. Players race to explore for useful cards, build developments, settle worlds, and produce goods. Goods really are good in Race for the Galaxy as they consist of alien technology, genes used in genetic research, rare elements that power JumpDrive, and novelty goods such as artwork and entertainment. After acquired, goods can then be consumed for victory points or sold for cards. The player who earns the most victory points by best managing his cards, phase and bonus selections, and card powers to build the greatest space empire, wins Race for the Galaxy!
