The elegant, gloriously nerdy FTL: Faster Than Light has you managing a starship through the roughest of times. The rules are simple enough to be understood quickly, yet complicated in play so that it’ll never cease taxing your brain. It’s also a lovely new take on the old genre of rouge-likes, where the fun isn’t in winning but in how long you can elude death against random encounters and increasingly unfair odds.
