In the second edition, the cards have been revised, whereby nothing has been changed in the established rules. Frequent gamers can look forward to some new starting worlds. It is also gratifying that it includes help for color blind people.
In the instructions, four pages are reserved for the explanation of all card capabilities according to phases - extremely user-friendly for reference if you have any questions at the end of the instructions.
In addition, this month Pegasus Spiele released Jump Drive, the little brother of Race for the Galaxy. It is a card game in which the rules and processes are considerably simpler and therefore easier to start with. Everything is reminiscent of the "big brother" - which is no wonder, since Tom Lehmann is the author here too. The iconography is also the same. The quick access to the game is already evident from the fact that the appendix with the explanation of the cards is only one page here. Jump Drive is suitable both as a get-to-know game for Race for the Galaxy, but also convinces as a standalone fast card game.
