⚔️ lack of planet queue action variety
⚔️ can result in dud dice with no mitigation



🏆My Review/Analysis:
I personally have never played the original tiny epic galaxies but this game seemed to be created towards introducing friends and family to a quick and easy-to-teach game! The clever dice allocation for actions is a fun mechanic that allows players to feel strategic in every move. The follow-up mechanic is also nice as it eliminates downtime and allows for more choices! Players can build a mini engine with the planets they conquer giving them even more dice actions! I do really like the ability to post up directly on a planet to gain the action or work on conquering it through the colonizing ladder. Production is great and the art is vibrant. I do wish the planets had some variety in their abilities and that dice mitigation was a little bit more fleshed out as it felt some turns some dice just were never used.

✨Final Rating: 🛡🛡🛡🛡
