4.0 out of 5 stars Love the game... hate teaching it!, August 30, 2011
This review is from: Race For The Galaxy (Toy)
I really like Race for the Galaxy. It's a good game. I would call it more tactical than strategic, but sometimes that's what is called for. It really takes the system of San Juan and up the ante. It is very satisfying to build up a tableau of planets and developments and then throw down a couple six-point develpoments that makes your score skyrocket.

My biggest issue is teaching the game. It's a steep buy-in to learn the iconography, and more casual gamers will almost always be put off by it. Then add in the fiddly rules of the expansions... and suddenly I have a great game that I absolutely never want to teach to anyone again.
