Galaxy Trucker, published in 2007 by Czech Games Edition is a board game for 2–4 players. In the game, players build space ships out of old sewer pipes, dodge meteors, and fight off bad guys, all in a quest to become the trucker with the most cosmic credits at the end of the game.
The game first was published the iPad and you can read my review of the game here at AppReviewCentral. In a nutshell, it is well designed and fun game for everyone. Because it is so good, I teamed up with CGE to offer Galaxy Trucker the actual boardgame as the top prize in the 2014 ARC Holiday Contest. You can enter the contest here.
Here is some official info on the game:
The game can be played with up to three other players, either online or on one shared device. A turn-based building system designed especially for this app allows pass-and-play or asynchronous online play. Players should expect a detailed tutorial, options to play against various AI personalities, as well as against their fellow truckers and friends both in realtime and turn-based multiplayer. An intriguing campaign career mode with many interesting challenges and 80 achievements will offer a great amount of gameplay also for solo players.
Because of this launch the game is on sale! So you want a family friendly board game you can carry around with you, then head over to the app market and download it today. The iPad version of the game got a nice update but the iPhone version is still coming.
