About the game:
In Tiny Epic Galaxies, each player controls their very own galaxy! From which they will develop their empire by managing resources, expanding their fleet, colonizing planets, and exploiting their enemies’ position.
The game runs on a clever dice combo-ing mechanic; players roll for their actions and choose the order in which to take them. This can lead to big “pay-off” turns, especially when combo-ed with planet abilities!
Throughout the game, players spend resources to upgrade their empires, re-roll unwanted dice, and even follow the actions of other players’ dice!
Players will accumulate power (victory points) based on the level of their empire, as well as for successfully colonizing planets. When a player has reached a power of 21 or higher, the end of the game is triggered.
You are the ruler of your galaxy and there are no limits to your expansion!
