haven't been this excited about a board game since Hero Quest or
-- Ben Seeman, Hero Games
of the Galaxy is an
adventure boardgame where the players take on the role of various
smugglers and travel freely about the galaxy evading pirates, monsters, and
other space dangers as they trade interplanetary goods to enhance their space
freighters. Explore the options...
Every planet has different
demands for Food, Robots, Weapons, Luxuries, and Medical Supplies. Buy low on one world and sell high on another. Expand your shipís
cargo capacity and upgrade your Lightspeed to make credits quick - but watch out
for pirates on the space lanes!
Some goods are illegal on some
worlds - but that means big bucks to those who can smuggle them past customs!
Larger worlds generally have larger starports - which means better security but
also better profits. Crime Bosses offer the biggest payoffs but youíll regret
it if you fail them. Find friends and technology that will help you smuggle
because you donít want to get caught with a shipload of illegal goods!
Become a space pirate yourself
by arming your ship and blasting unsuspecting merchant ships (and other
for their cargo. Be careful though - as your bounty stacks up, tougher bounty
hunters will become interested in you!
So other players have bounties
on their heads? Go after them and collect! Intercept
Pirates as well, but making powerful enemies in the
galaxy may be your undoing. A good bounty hunter must know when and where to
Upgrade Your Ship
Whether peaceful merchant,
shifty smuggler, or ruthless warrior - everyone could use a
better ship. Upgrade
your Lasers, Engines, Lightspeed,
Shields, and Cargo Pods to keep your
enemies off your back and increase your money-making potential. In addition to
these standard upgrades, be on the lookout for unusual technology, such as
cloaking devices, secret compartments, telepathic orbs, and more!
of the Galaxy is an excellent game. I congratulate Playus Maximus on
coming up with a fun, playable game that captures the spirit of space
smugglers we have come to love in movies, tv shows and video games..."
