SuperNova: Rise of the Empire
#11
Strategic vs. tactical is a difficult discussion. The terms are squishy and people have different interpretations of them. I probably should have clarified how I was using those terms when I categorized the various games, including yours (Davin for Galac-Tac). There are some strategic-oriented games I classified as tactical in my list, because they are more about achieving objectives than they are about civilization building. I was using the term more like grand strategy as how some boardgames are classified.

The more meaningful classification might just be open ended vs. victory-based. The only open-ended space games are SuperNova, Phoenix: Beyond the Stellar Empire, Regime Change, Riftlords, and Takamo. Riftlords is more a trading game than anything else (it could be cities in Europe instead of star systems), and both Regime Change and Phoenix: Beyond the Stellar Empire, from what I know of them, are more space opera oriented than your classic "create a race + empire and then explore the stars" type of games. Only SuperNova fits that bill. Takamo doesn't have a race and empire customization experience - you pick from a set of positions. All players that colonize planets are the same on Turn 0.
