I'm a new Race for the Galaxy player with about a week under my belt against Keldon's great AI (http://keldon.net/rftg/).

I am glad that you liked the game! Keldon's program has an online multiplayer, be sure to check that out.

I'm also a new player enjoying Keldon's AI but as far I can tell, the online multiplayer server is down. I tried the rftgstats.com alternate server as well with same result. Would love to play others if server comes back online.

I think it's been shutdown because an official release will be out soon on Goko.com.

Sometimes the keldon server is down for a few hours, but in the past few weeks I have been able to log in, so just try again.

The rftgstats server is no longer active, though.

I was wondering about this as well and tried looking for an update. Looks like it was in Beta last summer but then possibly stalled. They seem to have their hands full with Dominion so I'm not holding my breath...

UPDATE: Just logged in to Keldon's server on 3/25 and waiting for first game!
