Tabletop Spotlight: Space Base from AEG

3 Minute Read
May 2 2018


Today we join up with Dragon’s Lair to take a look at the new space station building game, Space Base.

Space Base is a dice-rolling game with card buying and resource management mechanics set in a sci-fi setting.

When the dice are rolled on each player’s turn, they will have options in how to allocate them in their base. How they choose to allocate them will dictate which rewards they will gain. On each player’s base they can buy various ships which will grant the various resources, credits, income or victory points when dice are allocated to them.

Each time a player buys a ship, they can place it into one of the 12 sectors on their base. Each time the dice are rolled, players can choose to either use the sum of the dice or both dice individually to dictate which ships will produce for them on that turn.

If a new ship is placed where a ship is already docked, the docked ship flips over and is placed upside down on that sector, adding to the resources gained when that sector is activated. This allows some pretty crazy engine building for a lucky roller.

Once a player has accumulated 40 victory points, each player gets 1 final turn then the game ends. Whichever player has the most victory points wins!
