LATEST UPDATE: #50: ANNIHILATE!
Next Stretch goal: NONE! WE DID IT!
Core Space is a deluxe fully modular three dimensional board game for 1 to 6 players. The game can be played as single missions or campaigns with each player in charge of a team of traders, their sole objective, to survive in a dangerous galaxy!
Each of your characters can be levelled up with new skills and equipment to help them in their mission, but it will not be easy. The rival teams, gangs and the Galactic Corporation will hinder your every step... but the real threat is the ever expanding plague of synthetic life forms that are slowly purging the galaxy of all life...
Play using our unique 'real search' system and advance your characters between games. It's fast to set up, fast to play, and fully compatible with all the Battle Systems terrain products. To win you will need to follow the trader credo: salvage, trade, adapt and survive...

The TITAN pledge! Gaming on a bigger set.
The dashboard, what it is and how to use it.
Each Core set will come with the following FREE stretch goals! The more stretch goals unlocked during the campaign the more FREE stuff each backer gets :)
Stretch goals are revealed and unlocked when we hit sufficient funding levels.
Many of the unlocked stretch goals will be FREE with the boxed game while others are add-ons that will be available to buy.
Additional items you can buy. To order add-ons make a note of what you want and add the total cost to your pledge. After the Kickstarter ends we will send you our pledge manager and you can tell us which add-ons you chose.
Shipping will be charged after the Kickstarter campaign, during our pledge manager stage. This is to make sure that every backer gets the best shipping price that we can offer.
Costs will vary depending on the number of game sets bought, unlocked stretch goals and optional add-ons you choose.
The following costs are estimates based on weight and location:
UK - £5 - £7
USA - £15 - £20
EU - £7 - £12
Canada - £15 - £22
China & Hong Kong - £18 - £24
Latin America - £30 - £45
Oceana - £25 - £35
Rest of World - £30+
This project is EU and USA friendly which means there will be no additional import duties for your pledge.
Some other countries may charge import duties or other charges which you are solely responsible for.
Risks and challenges
This is our fifth Kickstarter so we are now used to the challenges inherent in the mass production of products and the fulfilment of large numbers of orders as well as managing multiple suppliers.
We know how much it will cost, how long it will take to produce and how much delivery will cost in both time and money.
The final product may vary slightly from our prototypes in look and quantity. As with our other terrain projects we are pushing the manufacturing process to its limits and there may be some components that need adjustment and certain quantities may need to be re-assessed if there are problems at the manufacturing stage. Having said that we've had no issues in either look or quantity with our Kickstarter projects so far :o)
We are ready to run and we just need your support to get this new range started. We are gamers and absolutely love what we do so we want you to get what we have envisioned.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
