Star Wars Day may have come to a close, but there’s no reason why you can’t still celebrate space. A great way to do that would be to check out the excellent strategy boardgame Race for the Galaxy, which just launched digitally on Google Play.
Race for the Galaxy challenges you to expand your empire by playing cards. You’ll settle planets, develop new technology, and battle your enemies. Sounds an awful lot like Star Wars, doesn’t it?
Race for the Galaxy
It plays a little more like Civilisation in the sense that you have to focus on a specific strategy in each game. You could focus on development, exploration, or combat – but don’t spread yourself too thin.
You can play in single player, or multiplayer with up to four friends. There are a bunch of different worlds and cards to use. Some are available right away, while others you can only get by buying expansions.
If you’re a fan of board games, Star Wars, or Civilisation, you can’t go wrong with Race for the Galaxy. Go and grab it right now from Google Play.
