This is a fantastic game for fans of space colonisation games. It runs well on a laptop and is turn-based which is perfect for playing on the move or when you have a family. Everything looks a bit overwhelming at first but you can get the hang of it pretty easily. Combat is initially complex as it's quite different to most other games, but success is via a card-based system combined with your ships' loadout of various weapons and armour. You can play as one of the preset races or design your own races and select various traits. All in all, a great time-waster, highly recommended.
