Ground control to Commodore Tom. In Space Base, players are Commodores of a small fleet of spaceships. Your job is to draft new ships into your fleet to patrol your sectors, earn profits, and expand your influence. This dice game is great because every turn, no matter whose turn it is to roll, all players harvest rewards from their Space Base. Gain enough influence, and you may be promoted to Admiral!
This game is a fun mix of dice rolling and engine building. Your job is to build up your fleet over time so that it works for you - just like an engine turning on and then running by itself. Players can choose to build their engine in many different ways - maybe you are a push-your-luck kind of player who wants high stakes, high rewards payouts. Or maybe you're not one of the lucky among us, and you aim for a steady income, low luck engine. It's up to you!
- I roll dice, and everyone gets stuff! We love this since players stay engaged between turns, and everything feels friendly.
- You can learn to play this on the fly - no need to sit around reading the rule book, just get started rolling and pick it up as you go.
