Absorbing solo game

Reviewed by on

Friday is a completely solo, deck building game. The game components are good, and fit comfortably inside a small box that is easy to store. Game play requires strategic thinking, planning and careful choices. However, it's also fine for playing casually (if you don't mind losing). I would strongly recommend this game for anything who is looking for something fun and absorbing to do alone, when you need 15-25 minute break and distraction.

Fantastic Coop Game

Reviewed by on

Great 4v1 Coop game with fantastic miniatures. Was easy enough for us to pick up in the tutorial mission, and then guide another new player into in later missions. The missions can be very long though, with our average time of about 1 hour a mission.

The miniatures are very well crafted and very detailed, but the marines are sometimes hard to tell apart when scanning the board. I suggest spending some time to paint the marines to their appropriate colours to have them stand out.

Fantastic

Reviewed by on

Backed the 2nd version while it was still on kickstarter for an amazing price of R1300+-

I must say the game is rather daunting when first looking at it, but once its unpacked its not so bad.. the price does look insane, but to be honest, collectors edition PS4 games and some PC games go for this price to.

Its a massive game, with an easy 100+ hour long campaign, this is including the side quests etc. There are many characters to play from, 18 I think but you have 6 "unlocked" in the beginning, the other characters unlock as you progress.
Its also nice that other people can join your campaign at any time by dropping in, so you dont have to start and restart.

The quests are great as well, the game changes depending on the choices you make, say you chop some dudes head off, well now his quest line is lost. This means there is definate replayability with the game in order to see what other avenues you can take. the miniatures are unpainted but easily identifiable, you can also paint them for more immersion should you be so inclined.

Great game, well deserved for its awards and many highly rated reviews.

A lot of fun to be had

Reviewed by on

I have the game and the all the expansions except "Crime & Punishment". The game is a lot of fun and can be played in a variety of ways (especially with the additions). You can do jobs, bounties, cargo hauling and even piracy! Games can range from very quick (relatively speaking 1 hour) to very long (longest with all the expansions at the time was around 7 hours), depending on mission, luck and if you use the extra map portions. Start small with the base game (perhaps with the extra ships if you want) and learn it before adding the two major expansions. If you have like minded friends you will have a blast! It is especially fun to see someone hang around trying to recruit the original series crew and never doing a job, yet still having a great time:)

Very affordable deal

The playmats in this range are a bit thinner than the Ultra Pro Play mats but are still very durable.

It still has the rubber grip underside and a vibrant color top.

The more affordable version of the Ultra Pro Play Mats. So many different colors to choose from too!

This is a very handy product to store your decks and / or extra cards in.

The lids tend to crack in the middle but other than that they are very sturdy hard plastic containers.

I have a few of these and I am very pleased with them.

The Bonesylvanians are a cute range of minis and the details are very well moulded. They are standard mini size (1 inch diameter) and a sturdy plastic. I recommend washing with soap before painting.

Fun, yet complex game

Reviewed by on

I hadn't played the original Race for the Galaxy, but I was eager to get my hands on Roll for the Galaxy purely because I'd heard so many good things about it. The box is bigger than I'd expected, and there is a lot to come to grips with in terms of dice placements, selection, etc. The components are mostly well-made and sturdy. The cardboard screens are necessarily made of a thinner cardboard than the tiles, so you might want to have those laminated, but otherwise I can heartily recommend Roll for the Galaxy for people wanting to get into a nice, meaty worker placement game. Great game!
