In New Frontiers, a standalone game in the Race for the Galaxy family, players build galactic empires by selecting, in turn, an action that everyone may do, with only the selecting player gaining that action’s bonus.
The developments to be used are determined during setup, allowing players to make strategic plans based on them before play begins.
One group of eight developments is always in play.
The game includes a suggested set of sixteen additional developments for your first game; in later games, players randomly select which side of eight double-sided “small” developments and eight double-sided “large” 9-cost developments to use during setup.
