Your galaxies have expanded to the extent of known space. You overlap with your rivals and fight tooth and nail for fertile planets. Now it is time to extend the horizons. Now it is time to upgrade your ships to the limits of todays technology, and ready them with the brave pilots. Now it is time to go beyond the deep blackness of space into the truly unknown universe In Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black, players have access to four new ships that they can upgrade their original ships to. To do this, they will need to hire specialized pilots. There are many pilots to hire, each possessing a unique special ability. Pilots are also specialized in what ships they are trained to use. Hiring the right pilot for a ship reduces that pilot's cost. The more ships a pilot is specialized in, the weaker their special ability is. Pilots are hired by spending unused dice that correspond with the four different ship types, and are worth victory points during play. Pilots are shuffled into a deck and splayed out like planets. Additionally, Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black introduces a press-your-luck exploration option for players. This allows players to venture beyond the planets and into deep space where they might encounter dwarf planets worth victory points, or rare materials that yield resources... or they may encounter cosmic threats like solar storms, black holes, and even supernovas. Either way, exploring deep space provides a player with exploration badges. These badges are tallied up at the end of the game and players are rewarded bonus victory points based on who has the most of a certain badge type. They are four types of badges to collect. Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black also comes with additional planets and new and exciting secret missions to explore!

Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black gives players a little more meat to chew on. The expansion, which requires Tiny Epic Galaxies to play, beefs up the original game with some cool additions. Now, when a player rolls doubles, they may hire a pilot. The player will choose one of their rockets to swap for one of the cool new Advanced Ships that come in the expansion. From now on, that ship has the pilot’s special ability. Pilot abilities include things like, “This ship acquires 2 resources instead of 1.” Pilots are worth one in-game VP, and a player can hire up to four pilots at a time. Certain pilots are only able to fly certain Advanced Ships, based on which faces the player rolled doubles of. However, if a player rolls 3-of-a-kind, they may hire any pilot to hire any Advanced Ship.
The other awesome thing Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black adds is Exploration. Players may activate a “move a ship” die to travel to unexplored space. Once there, they will draw an Exploration Card which will have either a positive effect (“Discovery”) or a negative one (“Danger”). If it’s a Danger Card, the player must resolve it immediately. However, if it’s a Discovery, they can either keep it or draw again, hoping for something better. Exploration adds an enjoyable “press your luck” element that lends genuine tension and excitement to the game.
Players also collect badges from Pilots and Exploration cards, which are good for VP during end-game scoring. Many of the games my group played were so tight that the victor relied on VP from badges to win. It ain’t over ’til it’s over!
I would place Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black in the “essential” category of expansions. There is no situation in which I can foresee myself ever again playing the base game without it. It takes an already strong game and makes it even better. Adding in the “Satellites and Super Weapons” and “Drones” mini-expansions that came with the Kickstarter versions of the base game and expansion only furthered the experience. The result was a delightfully crunchy point salad with enough choices to really get my synapses firing.
Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black seems to scale well with different player counts, though with five it can get a little long. It is enjoyable for two. Like the original, the expansion is solo playable. The AI once again ranges from “for babies” to “hard af” depending on which Rogue Empire you choose to compete against.
With its smooth design and interesting decisions, Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black really brings the strategy. It takes Gamelyn’s best title and knocks it even further out of the park. This game will be hitting my table on the regular for many, many years. Now I wonder if there’ll ever be an expansion to Tiny Epic Western…
