A thirty-minute game of galactic conquest, Tiny Epic Galaxies is driven by an exciting dice-rolling mechanism that rewards thoughtful programming of the results. Players control a home galaxy and a fleet of space ships. As players upgrade their galaxies, they gain access to more ships and more dice. Each turn, a player rolls a set of dice; how many dice are rolled is determined by the level of that player's galaxy. Each side of the six-sided die represents a different type of action: Movement, Colony Action, Harvest from Culture Planets, Harvest from Energy Planets, Improve an Economic Influence, and Improve a Diplomatic Influence. After the roll, the player sorts the results of the roll (one selective re-roll is allowed) and organizes the dice in a desired activation order. Each die, in order, is then resolved and the results are immediate, which allows the player to pull-off unseen combos and surprise other players. Other players have the option to copy other player's actions...at a cost! As players expand their galaxy by colonizing other planets through economic and diplomatic influence, they gain victory points AND the special powers brought in by those planets! In addition to galaxy upgrades, effective resource management provides luck-mitigating options that can sway the game in a calculated player's favor. Whoever achieves the most points from acquiring planets and upgrading their personal galaxy wins!

Awesome game and hours of fun to be had.

First heard of it from Will Wheaton on Geek & Sundry youtube channel and it looked fun there, but its even better when you play it yourself.

A great mix of everything.

This is a great game for even beginner players getting into tabletop games. It follows a fairly simple play routine that may seem complex at first but becomes very straightforward after a round or two. It also allows players to play a solo campaign with varying challenges.

It mixes lucky dice-rolling, strategy and management mechanics in a way that blend seamlessly into a fun, exciting and nerve-racking game.

A great game, and a definite recommendation. Cannot wait to try the expansions

Tiny Epic Galaxies invovles a mix of dice luck and strategic thinking. Although players take turns, every player can take an action during other players' turns by using the "follow action" mechanic. So you really have to keep your eye on each development. Besides offering great fun as a competitive game for two to four players, it also features great rules for solo play. Finally, the cards and game pieces are of excellent quality. The planet cards in particular, are beautifully illustrated.
