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!

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!

User Ratings & Reviews

  • Only played solo. Love the theme and the art. Bits slid out of place on the player board almost every game. Found it tough to beat the beginner rogue galaxy. Traded.
  • A blast in a small package. So far, the best in the series.
  • Solo
  • Fun game. Needs a few more play-throughs to get all the planet mechanics down.

Adding to the list #Altiplano and #Tiny Epic Galaxies

Good week for board games! 

Also Table Top Simulator is on sale on Stream, so if you don't have it, I recommend.

Good fun this week!

#Raiders of the North Sea with the expansion #Raiders of the North Sea: Fields of Fame - tried with 5 people and have to say it's not ideal. Too many people...

#Root hit the table with Vagabond taking the win! Need to work on my Woodland Alliance strategy

#Tiny Epic Galaxies is a recent buy and very happy with it. Great little game.

The highlight goes to #Pandemic Legacy: Season 0 which we started the campaign with the same 4 people that did #Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 and #Pandemic Legacy: Season 2. Played only January so far, but EXCELLENT! Amazing fun.

Never say never....LOL

The time it would have the biggest influence is in trying to decide between the same game with different size boxes/components.

For instance, I think I would find #Ultra-Tiny Epic Galaxies too small, and would, if I were buy TEG buy the "full sized" #Tiny Epic Galaxies.

Hi again,

1. After some consideration I've come up with some good games that i would get if i were to start all over again (I have a dream):

#Star Realms (portable and fun, lots of expansions)

#Santorini (a much better than chess)

#Sushi Go Party! (Easy to pickup and good fun)

#Terraforming Mars (so good, the game that got me started)

#Burgle Bros. (I'm always game for a good co-op game) (Hopefully I'll get my kickstarter copy  #Burgle Bros 2: The Casino Capers)

#Forbidden Desert (what can i say, I really like co-op)

#Love Letter or#Infinity Gauntlet: A Love Letter Game (a Pint and love letter at the pub)

#Clank! In! Space! (Deck-building fun)

#The Taverns of Tiefenthal (was considering#The Quacks of Quedlinburg but i enjoy this even more )

#The 7th Continent (mystery and survival at its best) (Looking forward to#The 7th Citadel)

#Imhotep (simple, complex, fun and frustrating at the same time)

#Tiny Epic Galaxies,#Tiny Epic Zombies, #Tiny Epic Mechs,#Tiny Epic Quest, #Tiny Epic Defenders (Second Edition),#Tiny Epic Tactics,#Tiny Epic Kingdoms,#Tiny Epic Pirates, #Tiny Epic Dinosaurs #Tiny Epic Western (so small and with surprisingly much content and depth) (they are so small that my wife wouldn't even think that may gaming collection/addiction would be a problem)

Well folks that's the games i would get for my $200 (they were all on super mega sale of the century of course otherwise I wouldn't be able to get em all 😂).

2. And as for that hard to get game: #Shadows Over Camelot (co-op, hidden identity)

 

#Tiny Epic Galaxies is quick to set up and it's a game I don't need a refresher for, so it's easy to get to the table. 

A new go-to for me is #Pandemic: Rapid Response. Quick and easy to set up and fast to play. I've been enjoying it solo as well, controlling two characters.

 

I've played all of them (except Pirates, of course). It's tough to rank, but I'll do my best haha

  1. #Tiny Epic Galaxies
  2. #Tiny Epic Tactics - Featuring a 3D Environment
  3. #Tiny Epic Dinosaurs
  4. #Tiny Epic Defenders: 2nd Edition - Caveat: With #Tiny Epic Defenders: The Dark War Expansion
  5. #Tiny Epic Zombies (I'm not even that big of a zombie fan)
  6. #Tiny Epic Mechs
  7. #Tiny Epic Quest
  8. #Tiny Epic Kingdoms
  9. #Tiny Epic Western

So the top...7(?) are all really close. I really do like Kingdoms, but I'd rather play #Heroes of Land, Air, & Sea. And Western I've only played once, but I just got it in with Dinosaurs, so I'm looking forward to trying it out again.

1. #Crokinole is y heaviest. haha But, if we're going boxed games, probably #The Reckoners. It's got lots of metal pieces in it that helps weigh it down. 

2. For depth of play, perhpas #Trajan or #Escape Plan. For compact, probably #Tiny Epic Galaxies, since I have the expansion packed into the base box as well haha

I love good, heavy bits and pieces, but if the gameplay isn't there, what's the point? Gonna go with number 2.

I enjoy these posts. I actually had to include a couple months of plays to have 5 different games as we've played this handful a bunch of times in that time period but no others. Most of my plays since the pandemic started have all been lighter family games due to only playing with the kids at home.

1. #Imhotep - I thought about bumping this down to #2 but I am trying to avoid cult of the new-to-me opinion bias as I think this one will probably outlast the others in my desire to play. Had it for a few years now and still enjoy it.

2. #The Estates - Really like this one so far. Got it a couple months ago.

3.
#Cat Lady - The newest addition to our collection. My favorite cat is Cow. There's just something great about stuffing him full of as much food as possible for extra points. And with the Premium edition, having blanks cards and stickers to make  your own cats is just a nice addition.

4. #Cryptid - We've played this one the most. The kids enjoy it a bit more than I do but it is still a fun puzzle game.

5. #Tiny Epic Galaxies - Mainly brought this one back to the table a couple times to help me decide whether I wanted to back #Tiny Epic Pirates. Those plays confirmed that Galaxies is OKAY and that at least with the KS route, you pay a lot for the Tiny Epic gimmick. The deluxe version of Pirates & expansion with shipping would have been $48. And then if you wanted the add-ons (some of which would have been standard components in a regular game) you could have invested as much at $100....I cancelled my pledge in the final hour. You can a lot more game for that amount of money in other games I felt. But this is sort of off topic...
