Beginning in January 2021 (after being bitten by the New Years bug to put some gas on stagnating projects) I started measuring and mathing and cutting out the pieces needed to recreate icons from Race for the Galaxy. If you’ve not played RftG, it is a card-based game where your cards can act as planets, developments, credits, or resources – how you use them is up to you. There are different stages each round and the symbols can be a bit daunting to understand at first; they were to me. I played this game incorrectly 7 times before having the a-ha! moment where the rules clicked. What I love about this game is that it has a surprising amount of depth in just 30 minutes or so of gameplay. RftG is in my top 10 all-time faves.
