I like the progressive style of play (i.e. sectors). It actually feels like you are going deeper and deeper into the game as things go along. Plus, who wouldn't want to be a space barbarian sacking a dying galactic empire???

Update: Together with Galactic Orders, this has simply become my favorite game. From 9 to 10. Though, I am more liberal with 10's than most. But any flaws the game has are so inconsequential to my personal overall experience with it, it's pointless to even call them "negatives".

If I've got a couple of hours, this is my favorite deckbuilder. It is undeniably slow-paced and thinky, though the rules are well-thought-out to limit that tendency -- you're required to commit to some of your resource allocation before you see new cards available for purchase. Some people will be unhappy with this sequence, because of the blind planning involved, but I like that it says up front that you just can't try to calculate everything to the last bit of detail (as you could really take all day doing that).

The action sequencing ends up feeling a good bit like a worker placement game. You can do this thing now, that's pretty good, or do that thing there to set up a really good combo the next time around the table -- unless your opponent grabs that next step first. "Best available" vs "best long-term" is always a good dilemma.

This game really shines when combined with the first expansion, Galactic Orders. The base game is entirely playable on its own, but CW:GO really fleshes things out.

I'm pretty sure I love Core Worlds to death. We'll see if it starts to wane on me in time, but for now it's easily one of my favourite games.

Yup, I absolutely love Core Worlds. I don't think there's another game I want to play as often, or a game I just enjoy the dynamic of playing so much. I'm happy to wait for the expansion yet, as I haven't gotten to consume the base game anywhere near fully, but I know I'll be buying into it eventually.

The first couple of games take a long time because you have to read all of the cards, then on every turn you usually have to read through the cards again to see which ones work together the best. After more plays hoping to increase my rating, because it does seem like a good deckbuilder.

Update: More plays did indeed make a difference. Now we don't have to spend as much time reading the cards over and over, and the game is just a blast.

By far the best deckbuilder I have played, mostly because the deckbuilding is the means to a rather interesting end (rather than being the whole game).

Each turn is filled with things I actually want to do.

Rating is based on the game with the inclusion of the Galactic Orders expansion. Without it the game drops to about an 8. My favourite deck builder. Lots of choices, lots of planning, gripping from start to end.

The best deckbuilder, and the most divergent so far. Limited rounds, the warzone of card deployment, the various synergistic strategies, and ability to both make long-term strategic decisions and short term choices about invasions and drafting mallow this game to truly become a narrative of the collapse of the empire. I really feel like I'm guiding the events that led to Asimov's Foundation series. The art hits the perfect Homeworld vibe, a space atmosphere that's usually quite unexplored in games.

I love the game, neat decisions, fun synergies, but the downtime and AP can be a real pain.

Easily my current favorite deck-building game. Not only is it actually densely thematic, it's also a really well constructed game full of tough decisions and a race to accomplish your goals before they're blocked by your opponents.

Excellent deck building game. Really enjoyed the science fiction theme. Player turns move along at a nice pace and there are plenty of choices to be made.
Introduced this to my group just the other day and while it took us a bit to smooth over the rules once we got past the first turn things moved along very quickly. Everyone had a blast playing it as well. Look forward to getting it to the table again.
