It feels less like MPS than Race, and less lather-rinse-repeat than Dominion, so I was pleasantly surprised by Core Worlds and would definitely play again.

Other things that work for me:

Art and Theme: Excellent "space opera" art presentation.

Lacks the stuff that brings down Race: doesn't bury you in Icons.

Most cards seem relevant, not many duds.

So even though we have another game of "Intergalactic Conquest" where you never get to enter combat with other players, I really liked it.

Loathe both RFTG and Dominion, but I like space games, wish it had combat.

I'll check it out now.

Edit: I actually really enjoy RftG now. And Core Worlds with Galactic Orders is excellent. Still not much for Dominion though.

Yup same here. I love both Rtfg and Core Worlds (with both expansions)
Dominion is not my thing either.
