I really enjoy this game. The options that open up with your dice and alien artifacts is really nice. This is not a dice game in the traditional sense.

2015/4/25: Played it again a few years alter and this time it really clicked. The design holds up nicely and clearly surpasses the hype of a few years ago. The fact that you have lots of option and you never feel like you can't do anything with your dice really helps.

2011/6/10: Certainly one of the most polished games of the recent wave of "Dice-Games". It's easy to learn; frustration factor is low, since you can do somthing with any dice-roll and the artwork is gorgeous. OTOH, Alien Frontiers feels a bit overproduced and, for my taste, it takes a bit too long for a game of it's kind. All that said and given the hype this game has received on BGG, I feel kind of underwhelmed. Certainly a nice game and I'd play again anytime - but I don't need to own it.

Great great game, not a 10 as can suffer from AP paralysis. Still a lot of fun to play and well worth the hype aurrounding it.

Well! This came as a total surprise. When presented with the opportunity to play Alien Frontiers, I thought to myself "Meh, I'm tired of overly complex games with little plastic figures, incomprehensible rulebooks, interminably long playtimes, leaving nothing but exhaustion in their wake. Give me a short, intense Euro, someone!"

"Oh . . . that's what this is?"

And it's quite a good one! It's a dice-euro -- a popular sub-genre -- that some are probably calling "worker placement" -- cue the mechanics police!

To me, the game to which it can be strongly compared is Alea Iacta Est. (And, in fact, if Alien Frontiers was themed as ancient Rome, one might almost accuse the designers of plagiarism.)

However, Alien Frontiers, while using a similar dice-allocation mechanism as Alea Iacta Est, adds enough options to make for a much deeper game experience. The goal is to gain points by using resources to place settlements on an alien world. Dice are rolled and allocated according to the outcome to various action locations around the board. These give you resources, allow you to build extra ships (use more dice), build settlements, collect special action cards, etc. It all works together quite well, and one might even call it "elegant!"
