In Tiny Epic Galaxies, the weight of the universe is on your shoulders. You are the supreme commander of your very own galaxy ... in an intergalactic war!

You will be competing with other galactic leaders to colonize the most sought after planets in the universe. You will be managing resources and expanding your galactic footprint. Guide your Starfleet wisely and if you can build the most powerful empire you will claim victory of the entire cosmos!

Tiny Epic Galaxies is driven by an exciting dice-rolling mechanic that rewards thoughtful programming of the results. Players control a home planet and a series of space ships within their own personal galaxy. As players upgrade their galaxies they gain access to more ships and more dice.

Each turn, a player will roll a set of dice, how many dice are rolled is determined by the level of that player's galaxy. Each side of the die (6 sided) represents a different type of action: Movement, Colony Action, Harvest from Culture Planets, Harvest from Energy Planets, Improve an Economic Influence, Improve a Diplomatic Influence.

After the roll, the player then 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! This gets very exciting, as it allows the player to pull-off unseen combos and surprise other players. But don't fret! Other players have the option to copy other player's actions... at a cost! This means it could be YOUR TURN, every turn!

In addition to upgrading galaxies, effective resource management provides luck-mitigating options that can sway the game in a calculated player's favor.

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!

You are the ruler of your galaxy and there are no limits to your expansion!

This is a game in which nothing has been wasted. They have wrung every inch of play out of the game. They even recommend using the lid of the box as a dice tray.
Gameplay wise, it is pretty tense towards the end, quite thematic and easy to pick up.
Lots of play for the price.

I know it says 30 minutes on the box but our first play-through took more than 2 hours! I really hope this speeds up with experience, even though some members of my game group are prone to over-analyzing every move. I really appreciate this game and what it sets out to accomplish. My girlfriend, however, called it boring and quit playing after about 15 minutes. This won't be for everyone, then. I'm hoping the 'Satellites & Superweapons' mini expansion might inject a little bit of life into this game once it arrives from BBG.
