Race for the Galaxy 1 on 1 Galactic Master Challenge


#484

I did not even realize we had a fully emoji library on here. I will go with :8ball:

also, does the icon have any significance other than just extra flair on the list?


#485

identifying the winners in the Honor Roll (of the last 12 title matches) :wink:
and: by completing a perfect line of 12 the player would take home the trophy and close down the thread.
it happened for the Cthulhu Realms challenge, when @HolstenKnight achieved the dirty dozen.

you can see it was about time to break Giant’s Dominance :smile:
i think Snotty’s (evil) Clover Empire was once one win (or two wins?) short of establishing the Ultimate Reign of New Order.

sometimes i wish i could see the complete list of winners since the begining of this thread. would be very interesting. maybe one day i’ll take on the challenge to do it :crazy_face:


#486

I’d love to see that whole list! Sounds like a fun weekend activity @JammaTal! :wink:


#487

do you play with the expansions? do I need them? I just have the base set right now


#488

yes, all expansions in use.
but only the player who is setting up the game needs to own them.


#489

All pieces did click together for me, @JammaTal could not do anything against that. Final score 48-25

#490

I got bored/inspired enough to do it. I probably made some mistakes, but I tried to account for people changing their icons and the rule about not pushing your own icon off the list with a win.

The bottom right is the oldest game and top left is the most recent.

#493

@JMH.75, it seems like this game has bugged out. I just played Gateway Station this turn (it’s even in the game log), but it isn’t in play, and is showing as being in my scavenged cards for Galactic Scavengers. Am I missing something?


#494

@Hardco It indeed seems bugged. Shall we terminate this game and start a new one?


#495

That would be best… I assume it is a bug with Galactic Scavengers.


#496

hardco (33) over @JMH.75 (17)
Good game JMH.75, our empires ended up being close, but I made off with all of the bonuses. I still feel like the starting world with +1 military, +2 trade is overpowered…

Ok, I will use the starting world with +1 military and +2 trade in our game, @Hardco


#498

I think Hardcos overpowered, so that should balance it out a bit


#499

jason1002 (47) over @hardco (45)

Very close game. Hardco got more of the 5 and 3 pt bonuses. I had 5 military and did some produce/consume at the end. Neither of us were into Developments – Hardco just “Settled” the whole time.

I went all military. I felt bad because I was drawing awesome cards.

GG! I couldn’t get anything going there, even with stalling the end of the game for a turn to draw a handful of cards. The writing was on the wall pretty early in that game :slight_smile:


#502

feederofgoats over jason1002 (apologies but I lost the score and don’t know how to recover it)

gg jason - I got very lucky with the cards I kept pulling for the consume/produce cycle…

69 to 40. Good game. It was ended by the VP pool emptying instead of the usual way.
