Carry your weight as you zip around the system collecting bounties and solving your own personal issues.

Cowboy Bebop: Boardgame Boogie is a cooperative resource management game with unique player powers. Each character has a 2 part story arc. In order to win the game, players must complete all character’s story arcs before they run out of food, fuel or cash.

Players all have a hand of cards each representing Combat, Piloting, Hacking or Investigation, each with stills direct from the anime.

Completing a Session involves discarding a certain number of each of the different types, but no player has enough to complete their Session on their own, and will need some help from their friends. Completing both parts of every player’s Session wins the game for the players.

Sounds easy enough, but completing each part of a Session requires flying around the system, which uses up your resources. Gotta buy more stuff. Need money to do that. How do you get more money?

Collecting bounties requires following leads. Finding leads requires reaching out to contacts. Each contact card will grant the players leads. Lead cards will show which sector, location and terrain type in which the bounty can be found. Once the players have enough leads to match to a bounty, they can begin the chase.

Chasing a bounty requires using your player cards with an additional few cards thrown in for a few unexpected twists and turns.

If the players can each complete their story arc before going adrift or starving, they win the game!
