The stand-out mechanism for me is the culture resource that lets you "follow" (copy) another player's action. This accomplishes several important things in the game:
1. It keeps players engaged on their opponents turns, thus eliminating down time boredom.
2. It speeds up the game by letting players advance their civilization on opponents turns.
3. It gives players another concern to consider when making decisions on their own turn.
The game gives you many, many decisions to make. I was initially concerned that the dice would make randomness too big a factor, but it doesn't feel that way when I played. My friends are eager to play it again, and the small size of the box and components is a virtue.
I bought this game to play as a solo game.
Everything in the box comes in a bunch of small, resealable, clear plastic baggies, so everything is well organized and not bouncing around. Also, I sleeved all of my cards and they STILL fit in the box comfortably (i.e., I don't have to force the box to close), which is another plus for me because not many games fit all of their cards if you sleeve them. The pieces are high quality wooden pieces with nice paint jobs.
As for the game itself? This is why I give it 5 stars for solo gameplay--
I bought this game because I wanted to buy something a little different than what I was used to. Space theme isn't something I'm really interested in, but the game had good reviews to be honest, so I gave it a shot.
The truth is that I wasn't a huge fan of it to be honest, BUT I am giving this product a full 5 stars because, on top of what I said before, I felt the rulebook was very well laid out and easy to learn from. You can pick up this game in less than 20 minutes and it's quite challenging (at least in my experience). The size makes it ultra portable, too! Then there's lots of replayability. Lots of pluses here.
So in my personal taste, no, I would not buy another game like this. I would give it a 2/5 stars in terms of how much I enjoyed it. BUT just because I didn't like it doesn't mean that it deserves 2/5 stars. I am considering the quality, learning curve, size, and ease of gameplay in my review, hence the 5 stars. I can't dock the rating just because it doesn't fit my personal style.
*PHEW* All that said, you're really into space themed games (or interested in picking one up), this is probably a really, really good game to pick up. There is also an expansion pack that you may want to pick up which totally changes the gameplay, so consider that as well!
Giving it 4 stars for the above limitations. It wouldn't have taken too long to have slight advantages put into place for different races.
But that is its only drawback. Quite amazing dice techniques, lots of different tactics you can take to win, etc. Single player has an actual difficulty to it rather than the mechanically dumb "neutral player" games like Power Grid or Harbour has, and you're not just trying to reach an arbitrary high score like in Caverna or Agricola. The dice makes it not a pure strategy worker placement game, but they're used in a very balanced format so the gameplay does not focus around pure lucky rolls.
I like it a lot, and for someone who transports a lot of games with them to gaming nights, the box is a very convenient size (about the size of a 3DS XL box). I know a lot of games are more popular with a big central board to them even if only cards are being placed on it (the reason game mats are so popular for games that don't need them, like Machi Koro or Boss Monster), but in playing with people new to a game a giant central board separate from your main board can be intimidating as well. This felt like a Race for the Galaxy game with dice involved.
I enjoy this game pretty well, but it is hit or miss with other players and probably will not see a lot of time on our table as a result. One pro to this game is that every turn, players have the ability to copy moves that the active player is taking. This keeps people engaged for the whole game, as long as they manage their resources well. A downside is that this game really shouldn't be small. The player boards are covered in tiny pieces that all mark critical information and it is far too easy to accidentally jostle the entire thing.
Do not get this game if your players have analysis paralysis. There are a multitude of choices to be made on every single player's turn. It is better to try to treat this game lightly and take quick turns when possible to keep it moving. If your players are unable to do that, this game can be miserable.
