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.

1 Roll for the Galaxy Bot (Unofficial) Expanded AI Flow
This is an "expanded" version of Bruce Nettleton's (pastorbln) AI for his solo variant. You still need his original document here... https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/114084/roll-galaxy-bot-unofficial This just lays out the AI actions in more of "flow chart" view than his version. I just found this easier to follow for myself so I thought I would share it in case anyone else would like it. (Uploaded with Bruce's permission)
