The theme is mining copper in the UP. The mechanic is set collection. Players have three actions per turn, two from column A and one from column B. A actions are more important early and B actions are better late in the game as it the way you score points for the sets. Each of us said we'd play again. I am a bit envious that I didn't back this one on the Kickstarter.

Race for the Galaxy, the Imperial Arc
with Goals, and Prestige

Bruce 56, Tony 54, Rick 36

Tony and I split the goals between us. Tony held the prestige card most of the game. Tony used a prestige and production engine. I used the benefits from the Terraforming Guild and a timely x3 Consume for my points.

Samurai Spirit, normal level, slightly rigged

Tony, Matt R, Bruce, Jon

We defended the village with a tremendous amount of success. We lost only one farm and one family. The samurai were undamaged.
