From the Manufacturer

Corporation incorporated, the galactic leader in sewer system construction, is looking for can-do guys and gals to haul materials to remote regions of the galaxy. Must be willing to fend off meteors, smugglers and pirates. Experience working with aliens a plus. Earn copious cosmic credits with bonuses for speedy delivery. Become a galaxy trucker. It's loads of fun. 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, the players try to avoid snares and obstacles, while grasping financial opportunities, each hoping to be the first to finish with an undamaged ship. It's possible that you will end up with an insurmountable debt and finish your days panhandling on the streets of Deneb III, but if lady luck should smile upon you, you just might find yourself among the 10 billion richest people in the galaxy. For 2-4 players. Takes about an hour to play. Strategy game.

As a board game geek, and one who has convinced their spouse of the value of playing board games, we have played a lot of games. This game was different to so many games in so many ways.

First off, the instructions were a crack-up to read, and the writers definitely had a fun time writing them. We laughed while we read the rules, and it started the game off on in a fun mood for those playing. There were a few areas that the rules were not entirely clear on and we had to just make a house-rule, but overall the rules were clear once the game was started (it even tells you in the rulebook to just start playing and you'll understand it better).

As for the game itself, the concept was unique and fun, and the way the game is played is unique and fun. There are three rounds of play, and each round gets increasingly more complex. The basic premise of the game is to build a ship with component pieces, and then try to succeed at 8 different random adventures. By the time you have all gone through the eight adventures (There are quite a few different adventures, so each game will be different out of sheer randomness), you total up the amount of cash you have. After doing this for three rounds, you total up the amount of cash you have and see who wins.

The randomness in the game comes from the random components you pull to build your ship in the beginning of each round, the adventures that are drawn each round, and how everybody else does building and surviving adventures.

I'm a fan of European strategy board games like Stone Age, Puerto Rico, and many others. The games I like tend to have a bit more strategic depth than most, so when I saw the name "Galaxy Trucker", it sounded campy and silly and so I avoided it. What a mistake! In fact, it *is* campy and silly, but it's so hilariously funny that you'll be too busy laughing out loud to mind the fact that there isn't a lot of deep strategy involved. I finally played the game last night at the urging of a friend, and immediately bought my copy and started writing this review that same night - it's that good!

The game consists of three increasingly difficult races across the galaxy, each of which takes 20-30 minutes. Before you can race, you need a space ship. But you don't simply get a ship pre-made; you have to construct your own ship out of spare parts. Think "Star Control 2" meets "Pipe Dream". In other words, you get a stream of random ship components and must try to assemble them as best you can under time pressure. Ship components are square tiles, each of which have a function (crew quarters, engines, weapons, etc.) and 1 or more connections on their edges. Some tiles are "dead-ends" (having only 1 connection) making them better suited to the exterior of your ship, while others branch out making them better for the interior of your ship. But, you'll likely get them in the wrong order and have to improvise how you deal with them. Do you reject them and risk another player taking them, or do you put them in storage and risk paying a penalty for not using them? Or, you might get precisely the ship component you want but it has the wrong type of connection. Doh! Unlike Pipe Dream, there are multiple types of connections, and adjacent tiles must have compatible connection types.

Galaxy Trucker is a game that requires you to build customized star ships from a common set of components, then brave the dangers of space in the effort to make the most profit from feats and cargo trading.

I felt a little bad giving this game three stars. It has many positives, including:
1. Outstanding materials. Game boards and pieces are very sturdy
2. The art is attractive
3. Hey, it's sci-fi
4. There is a lot of individual style available in the ship design
5. There is a lot of strategy present in the ship design

The reason I mark the game down is that it will only appeal to a limited audience. When we got four people together to play it, two of them simply could not get their heads around the ship construction. They became frustrated, and that impacted their attitude toward the rest of the game, even though the two of us that readily understood ship construction helped them polish off their ships.

The rules are witty and well organized, but they are not sufficient to really get you started for a satisfying first experience with the game. There is no solid guidance concerning how many compartments of various types one needs during ship construction. This only becomes apparent as you actually play through the situation cards after gameplay begins. In our case, we were all woefully short on crew as a result. A couple of bad cards essentially wiped us all out and ended our first attempt. That was a bit frustrating after a somewhat lengthy session of ship building.

Unless I missed something in the rules, it doesn't seem that the adventure cards are really scaled to work well with the smallest ship size.
