Description Edit | History

The Race for the Galaxy family includes two released games (Race for the Galaxy and Roll for the Galaxy) as well as their currently available expansions. It also includes two upcoming games Jump Drive and New Frontiers).

In Race for the Galaxy and Roll for the Galaxy, players race to build galactic civilizations, represented by a tableau of cards or tiles, and to provide goods for their populace, earning VP chips. Race is card based; Roll is dice based.

In both games, the game end is triggered either by one player building a tableau of size 12 or more or by all players collectively depleting the initial pool of VP chips (adding more if needed). Player then total their VP chips, tableau VPs, and any bonus VPs to determine the winner.

In each round, players secretly and simultaneously choose a phase to occur, either by selecting
one of seven different action cards or by placing a die on a phase strip behind a screen. When all players have done so, phase selections are revealed. Only the selected phases occur, but all players perform the phases chosen (if possible).
