Race for the Galaxy is a strategy boardgame where players advance their empire by playing cards to build technological developments or to settle planets. Its core mechanic is a phase choosing game. Players secretly and simultaneously determine which one of seven phases they will lock in, all reveal at once, then execute the phases in order. Will you build an engine to ramp up VP generation on cheapo production planets? Will you invest in exploration and settle rare and valuable VP rich planets? Or will you rush a military conquest to cut off your opponents before they have a chance to develop their strategy?

Mr Cochese

I’ve played the tutorial up to the bit where it says “Now you know everything you need to know to finish the game” twice, and still have no idea what’s going on. Concepts like card colour, resource types and action bonuses are alluded to, but left unexplained. I know I can find the game rules online, but this could still be a bit more beginner friendly.

Brilliant 2 Player Game


Race still works even with Game Centre going, and is a superb two player card game. My friend and I have had no technical issues on new model ipads, and we find it's quick but engrossing to play.

Quick response from support


Had a little trouble trying to play online, emailed support and they quickly solved the issue.
