Description Edit | History

Game description from the publisher:

Roll for the Galaxy is a dice game of building space empires for 2–5 players. Your dice represent your populace, whom you direct to develop new technologies, settle worlds, and ship goods. The player who best manages his workers and builds the most prosperous empire wins!

This dice version of Race for the Galaxy takes players on a new journey through the Galaxy, but with the feel of the original game.

5 Andy's EZ Shipping Guide v2
This is part of a group of guides/tiles to help new/returning players remember steps and/or rules of the game. I found that the shipping phase had the most confusion and new players were always asking for clarification. (it doesn't help that the guide on the player shield shows the different trade cash values on the good, making people think the value is based on the good colour, not the planet). This is a nice easy printout to keep on the table for new/returning players.

5 Andy's EZ Phase Strip
part of a series of special versions of rules/game pieces to help those new to the game. Building on the great work from RedCrow and Horror Leader, this version of the phase strip has 1-4 step instructions. I found this helpful because this is the stage where new players must work alone/secret and they sometimes got lost/confused.
