3.0 out of 5 stars Fun game, but overly complicated for it's fun-value, December 13, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Race For The Galaxy (Toy)
I really enjoy Race for the Galaxy, but the learning curve IS rough. It's a tough one to teach to anyone, and if your friends aren't into complicated board games, you're probably going to lose them. For that learning curve, and the amount of times you may have to refer to the rule book, the depth of strategy really isn't as complex as it seems at the start. It's a good game, and I've played it every few weeks since I bought it, but I think it could stand to be revised rather than expanded.

I haven't played the expansions yet, but each one adds new rules, and the idea of adding new rules to the game and THEN teaching someone to play seems unrealistic. I think Race has the potential to be an excellent game, but as it exists, I can think of plenty of games that are simpler, more fun, and more complex in strategy.
