Roll for the Galaxy is a dice game of building space empires for 2-5 players. Your dice represent your populace, whom you direct to develop new technologies, settle worlds, and ship goods. The player who best manages his workers and builds the most prosperous empire wins!

This dice version of Race for the Galaxy takes players on a new journey through the Galaxy, but with the feel of the original game.

16 players will advance to four 4-player semifinals, with the winners advancing to the final. Tournament advancement is most wins, with the following tiebreakers:

  1. 1) Win in first heat played
  2. 2) Most 2nd places
  3. 3) Most 3rd places
  4. 4) Largest margin of victory/smallest margin of defeat (points) in best result, 2nd best result
  5. 5) Die roll

If fewer than 32 players participate in heats, the number of semifinalists will be equal to 1/2 the number of heat participants. If this number or the number of players who appear for the semifinals are between 12 and 15, there will be four semifinals of 3-4 players each. If the number is between 9 and 11, there will be three semifinals of 3-4 players and a 3-player final. If the number is between 6 and 8, there will be two semifinals of 3-4 each and the top two in each semifinal will advance to the final. If the number is 5 or fewer, we will move directly to a final. If a player who qualifies for the final chooses not to play, the remaining finalists will play.
