    Were you aware that Roll for the Galaxy is a spinoff of Race for the Galaxy? It’s kind of the same thing but with cards instead of dice, but it’s not a deck builder. You’re just drawing cards and either using them or spending them by discarding them to pay for stuff on other cards.Report

      I did not know that. I really dig Roll for the Galaxy’s mechanics. Would it be worth it to try to place Race or have I skipped ahead to the good stuff?Report

        Oh, Roll is a great game. It stands on its own, don’t worry.

        Just, if you were thinking of looking for more, then Race is a good place to look. And also New Frontiers is also related, circling back to a gameplay more reminiscent of Puerto RicoReport

    After considering picking up a copy of Shin Megami Tensei V, I decided to try to go back and finish Fire Emblem: Three Houses instead. After loading a save I had not played in months, I realized I had no idea what was going on, so I decided to restart Fire Emblem: Three Houses. I feel like I have a better handle on things than I did my first time through. Will I finish this time before I get distracted? We shall see.Report
