Every time I play this game I love it more. The depth of play and trying to read your opponents make this a unique experience every game.

Loved the boardlessness.

Then I played on a black surface...

This is a great relaxing game. The group likes it a lot, but it doesn't hit the table as often as I'd like. I wish it had an espenaion, preferably with a sixth player.

Pretty much killed our desire to ever play Catan.

This is a solid resource management game with an interesting sci-fi theme. There's some moochalism by guessing at what the other players will play and I like the interaction by having the trading. Allowing two cards to be traded to the bank minimizes the complexity of trading and keeps it quick. I'd say it's Settlers of Catan meets Race for the Galaxy and fans of either game will love this one.

UPDATE: Enjoying this more and more with each play, as the blend of mechanics is simple yet the strategy is complex. An immersive sci-fi experience that is just plain fun.

So balanced and just plain fun. It does provide a sense of building a space empire without combat. Nevertheless, the player interaction is intense and vital thanks to the action-planning system. A great game!

People comment that Ad Astra is Catan without dice - I think it is still more, with innovative board and an innovative action choice mechanic

Excellent game. My wife is not a sci fi fan but she really likes this - particularly the abscence of interstellar phaser battles.

A beautifully enhanced version of Settlers of Catan. It completely gets rid of the dice mechanic and adds a really interesting planning mechanic, while still keeping the core of Settlers in place.

I love the mix of strategies possible here, and how you can really maximize your points by timing out the scoring cards correctly. The only downside to this game is that it can end up taking quite a bit of time to get a good game in.

Holy cow is this fun, good, quickish and just plain enjoyable! Looking forward to play #2.
Play #2 and this is just genius, such a good game here! Might become a 10!Many okays later and this will never leave the shelf, an incrediblly game that plays quickly and offers numerous strategies and the metagame always present in a Fadutti game shines here with the unique planning phase.

Hybrid of several games, most notably Settlers of Catan and Puerto Rico, that creates its own feel. None of the five sub-races of Humanity have names or stories, which makes it feel more generic than I'd have liked. Rating 9 instead of 10 for two reasons: a slight imbalance in the races' connection to the stars, and the insufficient player aid mats (BGG has much better ones). I will almost always play this game if it's offered.

It's pretty much a variation of Catan with no dice. I prefer the scoring system in Catan, but this one's still fun.
