Product Description

From the Manufacturer

This second expansion for Race for the Galaxy delves into the growing conflict between the Rebel and Imperium forces. This expansion increases player interaction by adding takeover rules that allow players to conquer military worlds in other players' tableaus. This expansion also includes, among the new cards added, two player-submitted cards. Requires Race for the Galaxy to play. Race for the Galaxy: The Gathering Storm expansion is optional, but recommended and adds solo play. With only Race for the Galaxy: Rebel vs Imperium, min players is 2 and max players is 5. Both expansions are required for 6-player games

Product Description

As the Imperium crushes outlying systems, Rebel worlds begin to ally, politically and militarily. Meanwhile, the Uplift Code, within the genomes of the Alien Overlords' former servitor races, is being sequenced.Can you build the most prosperous and powerful space empire in a galaxy where border conflicts rage?

This second expansion for Race for the Galaxy delves into the growing conflict between the Rebel and Imperium forces. Race for the Galaxy: The Gathering Storm expansion is optional, but is strongly recommended and adds solo play. Rebel vs Imperium adds an extra player so with the 1st expansion allows 6-player game. The drafting variant now supports 2-5 players (instead of just 2-3 with The Gathering Storm).

This expansion increases player interaction by adding takeover rules that allow players to conquer military worlds in other players' tableaus, though players who refrain from playing certain cards are immune to conquest. A new "Mix and Match Explore" power allows a player to combine the explore cards with their hand before discarding. Three new start worlds increase the number of start worlds to 12 and allow players a choice of a military or non-military start world. New goals are also included. Finally there is a 2-player Rebel vs Imperium scenario.

This is a great expansion as it adds oodles more cards to the game, really making things interesting. You start to see some cards with costs more than the previous max of 6, and in general the game starts to feel a bit more epic.

As for the added gameplay feature of being able to capture other player's cards through military conquest, this aspect was decidedly a disappointment. It's a bit of effort just figuring out the mechanics of how takeovers work, because the rules are a bit strange, and more work still maintaining a constant count of your military strength as you play using the included sliders and marker pieces. And in the end, only one out of every few games involves ANY actual takeovers, so all the work has very little payoff, and I find it easier to play without takeovers active. The one interesting effect takeover rules can create is an ongoing arms race between two players, who continue to bolster their defenses back and forth, but never end up attacking.

All in all, I'm very happy to have purchased it, I just wish the conquest mechanics were more worthwhile. Perhaps a future expansion will make it more interesting?

First a quick word about the base game (This package is an expansion): This game is amazing! This is NOT for non-board-gamers unless you're looking for a challenge. If you're a person that commonly plays Settlers of Catan, Tigris and Euphrates, and (especially) Puerto Rico then this is a card game that you must get. Combining the mechanics of Puerto Rico into a card game and space theme, Race for the Galaxy is a quick-setup, multiple-victory-path game of greatness. The first few games can be rough (especially given the amount of icons + cards that there are) but are a few games you'll start picking up on combinations and victory paths. Definitely a must buy for a board game fan.

This package is actually an expansion for the base game and as far as I'm concerned you need both expansions to get the most out of the game. If you play it often it more than offsets it's cost. This expansion comes with rules for takeovers (I personally haven't even played with them yet) and a bunch more cards (including action cards so that the game can support up to 6 players). Due to the starting worlds that this game comes with the game now supports letting you chose between two start worlds while you are deciding which of your starting hand cards you'll discard.

Definitely a must buy for Race for the Galaxy fans.

We've played the original game many times, then bought the first expansion and played it a lot, now we've added this expansion. We love the balance it brings to the game, adding more cards, more variety, and makes the game feel very complete.

Take note though, the extra rules about attacking other players really don't mean much, there are only about six cards you can use to attack other players in the whole deck, and furthermore it says in the rules: If you don't like attacking other players, then don't use those rules! We just explain to people to ignore the explosion symbols and we're good to go.

We might try the combat rules someday, but not now.

I love Race for the Galaxy, but this expansion kind of takes some of the tension out of play. Games tend to last a little longer, and so you don't have to make some of the hard decisions. It is required for the third expansion though, and once you add that one back in, you're back to the high stakes, high drama game that I know and love.

Interesting expansion but I mostly got it for the cards, not the added rules of attacking. Being able to attack other players takes away from the quality of the game.

I really fear that they're going to do with this game what devs have done with many others - add too many mechanics and make it annoying to play. This expansion adds fighting, which in my opinion adds very little value to the game since there are SO few cards that are capable of battling and it's only useful in certain games where things line up just right. BUT, if you take those cards out, you've got yourself a decent set of cards.

My three oldest children, aged 12.5, almost 10, and 8 as of 06/2014 love Race for the Galaxy (as well as other "nerd" games). In this age of iPads, games on phones, and overall inundation with electronic devices, I insist on myelinating their neurons with games that are hard to learn and harder to master - they've done a fine job, and Race for the Galaxy is definitely in my Top 10 of "hard" games that make one think. This expansion does the game justice, and adds even more difficulty and interest to an already solid game.

This is one of my all-time favorite games, and I enjoy all of the expansions. This one adds some direct interaction, which the original game otherwise lacks. Buy them all.
