Good news for those who enjoy board games as the classic Race for the Galaxy ($6.99) is now available for iOS and Android. In this board game you try to advance your empire by playing cards to build technological developments or settle planets. As with similar Euro games, you try to have the most victory by the time the game ends, so you’ll be trying to build a strong economy. You secretly and simultaneously decide which one of the seven phases you’ll lock in, then you reveal your picks at the same time, and then execute the various phases in the order decided. You can take all kinds of action like investing in exploration to settle valuable planets or going down the military path.
The game comes with both single player, with three challenging AI levels, and online multiplayer modes. The single player AI was developed as a research project on neural networks, so expect a stiff challenge. Race for the Galaxy has the Gathering Storm and Rebel Vs Imperium expansions available at launch, so plenty of content for you to enjoy. The game costs $6.99, and the players in our forums seem to be quite happy with it.
