About this game

Race for the Galaxy is a strategy boardgame where players advance their empire by playing cards to build technological developments or to settle planets. Its core mechanic is a phase choosing game. Players secretly and simultaneously determine which one of seven phases they will lock in, all reveal at once, then execute the phases in order. Will you build an engine to ramp up VP generation on cheapo production planets? Will you invest in exploration and settle rare and valuable VP rich planets? Or will you rush a military conquest to cut off your opponents before they have a chance to develop their strategy.

▪ 2 – 4 player with network multiplayer
▪ Single player mode with advanced neural network AI
▪ Five starting worlds and ninety settlement and development cards
▪ Free promo pack included: New Worlds with six additional starting planets
▪ Gathering Storm and Rebel Vs. Imperium expansions available for purchase

Can we get an update?I love this App and game and play it wayyyy to much. However it's become so glitchy and now crashes all the time for me and my friends. I'm only writing a review to bring up this issue with the hope that they'll fix it. Don't change anything else, please just make it playable. TIP: when playing AI the app runs better when you go to Play Online and then check "Go Offline"

So far it is a solid implementation, but it lacks some of the functionality of the desktop (Steam) version. Specifically, It does not highlight cards that require action from the player. For example, in the desktop version, when certain cards are eligible for being played, discarded, or various other actions, the desktop version will surround them with a glowing highlight. Without this, it is not always obvious which cards need action. This is confusing, especially for new players.

Important point: as of 4/12/2019, this game only works correctly on screens with 16:9 aspect ratio. if you have an 18:9 screen (like I do), key parts of the UI get cut off and some information is not accessible. i managed to test on a friend's 16:9 tablet and it worked fine. it seems like a decent-enough game, the secret action-selection mechanic is the main thing that makes this game different than others. But it doesn't have crazy combos, so it feels more chess-y than star realms or Dominion
