    Play-tested this during the recent Kickstarter campaign, and loved it. Nothing too serious, but not simple you give it up. Heavy on luck, but does have a tech tree to advance your abilities. Played many times, reluctant to change my approach for some reason…

    This game is just pure fun. Each time it comes out my group enjoys it. And it scales well to various player counts. The easy teach makes it even more accessible.

    The base game is super easy to learn and the additional modules add gameplay variability. I would highly recommend this anyone. It was the most fun we had in a long while.

    It is more like a half done version of a potential great space war game.

    This game far exceeded my expectations. I haven't seen a lot of hype regarding this title but it's definitely hype-worthy. I'm always striving to find ways to bridge the gap between my video game friends and board game friends and this game does that perfectly, especially for the fans of RTS-style games. Expand your base, decimate your enemies, this game encourages different play styles brilliantly. It's easy to learn for the casual board gamer types with expansions for the more dedicated board gamer types and playtime is reasonable. I'm very impressed, this is definitely in my top 10 all-time favorite games.

    AMAAAAAZING GAME! I Love that if your opponents get an advantage over you at the start it doesn’t mean the whole game is a slow decline for you, you can still turn it around and have a chance to win late game! 8/8 would recommend!!

    A fun space skirmish game where you control a small fleet trying to explore local planets and battle other players while defending your Colony Station. A nice Tech Tree allows you to customize your fleet to your play style as the game progresses. Has the look and feel of an RTS video game on your tabletop.

    I am always happy to support Aussie boardgames that pique my interest. This looks a lot of fun, and I cannot go past a sale like that!

  • +1
    • Oh that's a great idea! I'll do that now. Thanks for that!

  • +1

    Ok so the normal price is $99 but it's now on special to the general public for $49.50 plus $12.00 shipping ($61.50) and this voucher code takes $10.00 off that combined total so that shipping is effectively reduced to $2.00.

  • Snagged a copy with the expansions. Cheers

  • How often do you have these sales? Interested in trying the base game, then coming back for all the extras later if I like it.

    • I've done a sale around Xmas time the last two years. But the purpose of this sale is to clear out what's left in my Sydney warehouse (there's not much left). Otherwise, you might be able to pick some expansions from our USA distributor.

      • I went all-in. XL+3x expansions (you have to add the third expansion separately to the bundle).

        You can add a booster pack for $0. I was tempted to add a three of them given I was buying all the expansions/XL, but only added 1 as I figured it was too rude?

        • Oh the 5x promo cards? Haha yeah, you can add as many as you want…I wouldn't had an issue with 3. No one has tried to clean me out yet lol…

  • What game components or expansions would you recommend for someone starting out?

    • 'Into the Vortex' is a must have! The others all add really cool game elements, but I think that's the best to start with. The Booster pack also has some great additions to the base game too :)

      • Thanks for the advice
        For someone new - What's the purpose/benefit of the extra planets, enclaves, space whales?

        • +1

          The purpose of extra's is for those who want extra large games or who plan on custom house rules. Other than that, everything you need comes in the base game and expansions.

  • Thanks for the offer. Always happy to try a new game!

  • @mothershipboardgame

    Whats game place like for smaller groups on the XL board? Do you recommend this only if playing with a higher player count?
    How is the replayability for solo players?

    • Smaller groups on the XL board is great, as it means you can have more room to spread out and expand. It really depends on the kind of game you want to play. Smaller board is more cramped, but it means players have to strategize a lot more and be careful with their moves.

      Mothership was designed from the ground up to be a multiplayer experience. The solo mode is a fun little diversion, but the real fun comes from other people.

      • Thanks.

        Is the content booster pack worth including if I am already going to get the 3 expansions?

        • +1

          Yep, definitely. The booster pack really adds a ton of new content that goes with all three expansions + base game.

          • @mothershipboardgame: Thanks.

            Gone all in with the XL bundle, extra expansion, booster pack and 1 space whale :) Not sure why the extra whale but hey, it looks cool.

  • Ordered XL Bundle and extra addons, in confirmation email it says:
    If you haven't already, check out the expansions available for Mothership here. The latest expansion, Beyond the Expanse, is in production right now and can be pre-ordered from here.

    Is this still the case or does it need to be updated?

    • Ooo good pickup! I'll fix that. Thanks for the heads up!

  • Bought one. Happy to support a local designer.

  • Does the XL bundle with all add ons fit in one box or does it need to be kept in seperate boxes?

    • The base game box fits 2x expansions and does fit the XL pack with a bit of Tetris work 😁
