Almost perfect game
March 28, 2011

I heard a lot about this game before I ended up paying a whole lot more than necessary for it but it was worth it. This game is nearly a perfect game. The fact that luck does pay a significant role in this game hasn't changed my mind about it. I prefer strategy games but there is enough strategy in this game to make it a thoughtful and challenging one. The artwork and components are top-notch for such a small company that produces it. Basically you roll dice and put them on various places of the board that have to fulfill various conditions in order to be placed. Somewhat like Pillars of the Earth with the various options laid out on the board, it is a whole lot smoother in its play than Pillars. You score points by the colonies you lay down on the planet and the territories you control. There are also alien artifacts on the planet to get that give you various abilities. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
