Played the Master of Orion game. It’s a “build a tableau representing a space empire” game trading on the Master of Orion Licence. What separates it from most is there’s a “punch other players”-mechanic.
It’s Cryptozoic so it has that baggage, it’s not outright terrible but I feel like I have that niche covered by a lot of better games.
Compare that to Horizons, where I went and kickstarted the game after playing it.
Also played the cites expansion of Splendor, which breathes some new life into that game.
