D100 Space - Galaxy Builder (Book 2)

I'd never play D100 Space without the Galaxy Builder now. Adds a lot to the D100 experience, and I really appreciate having the universe more dynamic and fleshed out with the Galaxy Builder. The event system, galactic time keeping, and changing economies are for me the best parts. The universe feels much more alive now. Just keeping track of the passing days, months and years really helps with immersion. Creating star systems is also fun. Still has a ton of book keeping, random rolls can still mean away missions can last either 5 minutes or several hours, and often I have just house ruled something because strictly following the rules would just be less fun. It's a solo game so just remember you only need to worry about making it fun for yourself. That said there are some good rule changes here from the original that help. All in all I really like Galaxy Builder and can recommend it without reservation to any D100 Space fans.

I love how fast this one plays. The rules are relatively simple compared to a lot of other similar experiences, and I can dip in and out of play sessions quickly. I can either take my time and envision scenarios, filling in details to my heart's content, or I can just roll like a maniac from one event to the next.

Gameplay is additive. There's a real 'just one more roll' vibe here. I always want to see what's around the corner. There are tons of events, and quite a lot of variety too. One complaint, though, is that in all my playthroughs I seem to get onto the same story arcs very frequently. This is most evident with a few 'core' events like Distress Call and Ship Encounter that serve as launching off points to other adventures. I could just be unluckly, but I see a ton of story content as I flip through the rule book that I just never seem to come across.

One other suggestion: Please provide a hex map with grid numbers in the hexes. I had to go print my own from another source because I hate having to find grid numbers by looking at the x/y axes all the time.

Overall, this is a game I really enjoy playing and can see myself sinking a lot more hours into.
