Product Description

Product Description

The game consists of three rounds. In each round, the players begin by rummaging through the Warehouse, trying to grab the best components and build the best space ship. Once the ships are under way, players will encounter dangerous situations, while grasping financial opportunities, each hoping to be the first to finish with an undamaged ship. The goal is to have the most credits at the end of the game. Players earn credits by delivering goods, defeating pirates, having the best looking ship, and reaching their destination before the others.

Box Contains

1 flight board; 8 two-sided ship boards; 60 adventure cards; 64 cosmic credit pieces; 144 space ship components; 4 numbered tiles; 40 white figures; 8 alien figures in two colors; 8 rocket markers in 4 colors; 36 battery tokens; 56 goods blocks in 4 colors; 1 two-sided card with rules; 2 dice; 1 timer; loads of fun for the whole family

This game is fun. It has to be fun, as the alternative is that it hates you and you end up crying in the corner.

It's a light game, playable in 20-80 minutes depending on how many flights you want your space craft to take. The first 5-6 minutes are spent in a mad dash to collect random pieces of spacecraft from the box (all of you at the same time), and assemble them on the board in front of you. Your craft might be bristling with guns, thrumming with engines, or echoing from all the cargo holds you've built. And whilst you are allowed to peek at some of the cards you'll be facing on your journey, Lady Luck doesn't like space.

After your craft is assembled, you then launch yourself to the stars and (hopefully) your destination. Event cards are then dealt, usually affecting the first player first, but not always. Once the cards are dealt, you've made it! Any cargo you have earn you money, as will the general condition of your craft.

And then you do it all again, because it's fun.

Despite our group loving this, I had to knock off a star for the price. It is too expensive for the components in the box. Perhaps other games are just cheaper, but I have received much more in a box for far less cost. Still a great game, and if you find it cheap, snap it up - an Anniversary Edition has been released comprising this game, and two of the big box expansions, for around £60-70, so that's an option if you really want to take the plunge.

This game is really original. You build a spaceship by picking tiles and joining them togehter in a race against other opponents and your design often seems to go wrong. You then fly your ships through space watching it get battered by meteors, aliens, etc. Everyone suffers and you get to laugh a lot at each others misfortune. The quality of the game is beautiful and it is easy to learn. A bit pricy but well worth it.

... Unfortunately my girlfriend hates it. But I'll come back to that..

Galaxy Trucker is a game that I ignored for a long time purely based off of the box art. I thought the artwork looked very low budget and a bit crappy, despite hearing many good reviews about the gameplay. I put it to the back of my mind and played lots of other titles for a while, but the name kept coming back up.

I managed to borrow a copy recently, protecting myself from a risky investment, which turned out to be a really pleasant surprise. The game is chaotic fun that appeals to my childhood Lego-building sensibilities, allowing my imagination and strategy to work in unison and reap all sorts of space-based rewards.

The building half of the game is where the meat is, putting you against your friends in timed conditions as you snatch pieces that the others want. You have to make sure the connections match and you adhere to some strict ship building rules.. then before you know it the time is up and most of you have haphazard monstrosities that lack vital parts or might not even fit together properly at all. You look around and admire (or laugh at) your friends creations, before launching them into a minefield of galactic tragedies. Bad things are probably going to happen to all of you and you'll be lucky if you make it to the end of each adventure intact. Then you'll sell your remaining cargo and collect any other due monetary rewards. The person with the most money after 3 ship adventures wins.

Great stuff.

...But I probably won't be getting my own copy as my girlfriend has refused to play it again.

She claims that she's never hated anything more in her entire life, which seems a bit strong. You see she's pretty bad at the whole ship building thing..

The game is made of three rounds of two phases each: A building phase and a travelling phase. You build ships in the building phase and then they get destroyed in the travelling phase, at least until you learn to build good, well ballanced ships! Though there is some direct and indirect player interaction, it is one of those games where it feels like you are all playing against the game, rather than against the other players, similar to dungeon lords (a more complex game by the same designer).

The building phase appears at first to be a random speed round where you fill up your hull with components, there is a timer that is turned over by the first to finish that time pressures the other players. This keeps the game moving quickly, but oddly it isn't really a speed game. Building a good ship is far more important than building a ship quickly. The building becomes quite tactical after you have played a few times and there is a great deal of strategic play available if you are a hardcore gamer.

I wish i had gone straight for the 5th anniversary edition though, which though very expensive for a board game, saves a lot compared to buying the expansions seperately, as i'm sure i will eventually.
