Description:

We'll be playing Roll for the Galaxy with all modules from both expansions. The game is easy to learn (even with the expansions) so beginners are welcome.

Roll for the Galaxy is a dice game of building space empires for 2–5 players, based on the hit card game Race for the Galaxy. Your dice represent your populace, whom you direct to develop new technologies, settle worlds, and ship goods. The player who best manages his workers and builds the most prosperous empire wins!

Ambition adds Leaders, a starting die whose faces can contain multiple options, and Objectives which you can compete for Talent Counters, wild dice that count as bonus victory points at the end of the game if unused.

Rivalry adds two modules:

1) The Deal Game lets you exchange dice and other assets for various bonuses, like a longer credit track, a tile of your choice from the bag, or even just other dice.

2) The Orb Game gives each player a mysterious Alien orb, whose faces can be exchanged to give you more than a dozen unique abilities across six "tech trees". This orb is rolled every round along with the rest of your dice and every upgraded die gives you bonus points at the end of the game.
