    This is a fantastic game and wel worth the hefty price tag. Lots of colourful components and a great system for building your ships. When it all starts to go bad it is so much fun, especially when you are forced to choose which half of your ship you want to keep and which half gets blown off into space!

    This is a beautiful game with a large amount of components all of very good quality with excellent artwork throughout. The rulebook is well written and takes you through the first round in easy stages so you get used to how to play the game. The manual is also full of in theme humour making it a joy to read and follow.

    Your aim is to build a ship from scrap parts found in the company warehouse, all players doing this simultaneously. You take your "ship" through a flight following a deck of adventure cards which detail the hazards and encounters you have on the way. These all test the quality of your ship, should it survive the journey there are rewards at the end. You can pick up trade goods on the way, the end of the journey rewards you with credits for the best looking ship (least exposed connectors) and the order in which you land. You then have to pay a penalty for any pieces you lost from your ship along the way.

    The components you find to build your ship consists of lasers, engines (both single and double), battery compartments, cabins, Storage compartments, life support and structural units. Each of which have a number of connectors single, double, universal or smooth. When building your ship you have to place components in the designated spaces but you always have to connect them to an existing piece matching the connectors on all sides.

    In later rounds you have more advanced rules which allows the use of life support meaning you can now add aliens to you crew who can enhance your engine or laser strength. The game is played over three rounds where each round sees the players building bigger and bigger ships.

    This game does not take itself seriously and as long as you do the same it is really fun to play and every game is different. There are variants in the back of the rulebook for experienced players to make the game harder.

    I would recommend this game to anyone, it's just a shame Rio Grande Games upped the price from the original release as this may put some people off.

    This game is great fun to play as each player spends the first half of the round building up a spaceship from the many different tiles available. These tiles are all placed in the middle of the table face-down and the players all select from the same pool of tiles. Once the spaceship is built an event deck is shuffled and in the second half of the game players have to see how well their spaceships fare on a race to reach base (the end of the deck). Watch as that asteroid hits a players weak link and a section of his ship breaks off into space! See the plague ravage a ship killing all the crew leaving the intact spaceship drifting helplessly in space!

    Any ships that make it through what the event deck throws at them then earn credits and the next round begins. There are 3 rounds in total, with each round needing a bigger ship to build.

    This is a good light hearted game that doesn't take itself too seriously and we have fun with it every time we play.
