After many plays, I'm still hooked. Like any card game, luck of the draw figures significantly, but the game is all about hedging your bets and making good tactical decisions. Don't be too serious and you'll enjoy it.

The greater simplicity of Colossal Arena makes it a better choice for new gamers. However, the ability to raise and lower bases (bets) and the overall feeling of conflict in Galaxy make for a stronger, tenser game. I am tempted to tinker with the combat rules, but they work reasonably well as is.

It says it all on the box: Designed by Reiner Knizia and Don Greenwood. My two favorite designers under one lid, and from different poles of game design as well. Deeper and more tense than colossal arena with great artwork, solid theme and great quality cards. Yes there are more rules but there are also more options as you play. One time through and you'll have it down. The rule book is excellent with a good play example to help. I like the bluff, hidden information and all around sneakiness of this game. One of the few space themed games I love (along with Race for the Galaxy). I'd always be up for a game!

This game is fun. Good balance, short length, backstabbing, and alliances. My gamer and nongamer friends all like this one. Rules are a bit of a pain to read, but worth the effort.

An excellent game, with plenty of good strategy and a theme I love. The main reason this game loses a point, though, is the difficult to understand rulebook - seems to explain the rules backwards and doesn't flow well. Apart from that, one of my faves!

The more we play, the bloodier it gets ! Lots of fun.
It is easy to get lost with the rules, so folowing the player aids (linked here on BoardgameGeek) is a must.

Similar to Titan the Arena. It has some extra elements which are considered a plus by some. Overall a very good game. I like the bidding/gambling elements and the strategic cardplay.

Titan: the Arena is better, but this makes a good substitute if you don't have it.

played once and it was good. I will need more plays with this one. Has a good depth of strategy and decisions can be agonizing. Try playing Titan the Arena or whatever it's called now for a slightly easier version...

Runs long and requires a long table space, but very intriguing. Colossal Arena has less chrome and should play faster.

Love this game... it's much better than Titan: the Arena, improving the game in almost all areas of play. Consider Titan: the Arena as Galaxy Lite. If you like the former, you should really like this one.

Some of the strategy depends on getting the right cards at the right time. Even Technology cards can make or break you game.
