This is a more streamlined iteration of (Ultra) Tiny Epic Galaxies and is a bit more accessible than its predecessors. This is mostly due to the visuals on the planet cards, which have gotten an overhaul: the planets are more detailed and all text has been replaced with iconography. The gameplay has not changed much, and that’s a good thing! You still colonize planets to expand your empire and collect resources to upgrade your home galaxy. This gets you more ships and points, etc.
🧑⚕️DIAGNOSIS ⭐ 7.5/10
🩺 I love the new graphics. It’s a simple yet fun style, that makes you want to choose planets to collect for the art as much as for the resources.
🩺 The new slider for galaxy mats improves the readability of the number of dice, spaceships, and victory points you get per galaxy level. While it hasn’t been much of an issue before, it is a nice quality-of-life upgrade.
🩺 High player interaction. Be prepared to race your opponents when conquering planets!
🩺 The follow action is slightly nerfed by limiting it to the first 3 dice, adding a bit more strategy to choosing which actions to take first.
🩹 No solo mode included in the box, but there is an official print-and-play available
🩹 Great entry-level game but not much new to be found for Tiny Epic Galaxies veterans
