That's right, baby! Dandy has gone and used the Aloha Oe's broken warp drive and managed to converge every possible alternate universe into one, causing multiple copies of everyone in the known galaxies to run amok! What does this mean for our intrepid heroes? Will all semblance of civilization fall into disorder and chaos? Will the universe, under the weight of so many simultaneous timelines, implode on itself into a cosmic Big Bang?

Well. Maybe. But for now it means the Alien Registration Center has reset the database and is allowing new registration of all previously registered aliens! That's cold, hard Woolong just out there for the taking, baby!

The Space Dandy: Galactic Deck-Building Game brings the bizarre space-faring antics of the hit anime series seen on ADULT SWIM™ TOONAMI™ to the game table. It’s a race for each player to capture as many aliens as they can for their valuable end-game reward. But aliens are more than just victory points to win, they can become a core part of your strategy. With Space Dandy’s unique Planetside boards, players can use their aliens to directly influence each other’s decks and even enter combat to disrupt well laid plans. With over 200 cards, there are countless avenues for victory!

Inside the Box:
Over 200 cards with a universe of unique aliens 
4 Planetside Boards
1 Orbit Board
40 Plastic Star Tokens
Full-Color Rulebook
Plus! Exclusive “Racer Honey” Card not included in the final retail game

If you’ve played other Deck-Builders like Dominion and Ascension, you’ll already be familiar with some of the core mechanics. Each player begins the game with the same rather low-powered starting cards, but through careful play, you can acquire more to expand your options. Which cards you choose to take influence the kind of game you play!

Cards can grant new abilities, make it easier to acquire new cards, allow you to take extra turns, or even destroy cards from the game altogether! But the most important cards are the aliens. Not only can they improve your hand just like any other card, they can be played Planetside and directly attack the other Player. Why fiddle around endlessly with your deck when you can stick it to them and mess up their carefully laid plans? That's the Dandy way to play!

Even more importantly, aliens are how you win! When you register aliens, they are removed from play, but you get to score precious, precious Woolong that you need to win the game. But be careful! It can be difficult to decide if an alien is more useful in your hand, Planetside, or in the Alien Registration Center's bank. 

That’s not to say the other cards aren’t important, too! Effect Cards cannot be registered OR played Planetside, but they let you manipulate the game to your advantage. Sick of that really great card the opponent keeps playing? DESTROY IT! Changed your mind about the card you played Planetside? WARP IT BACK! Keep your opponents on their toes with your carefully constructed (or hazardously haphazard) deck!

You can also fill out your space crew with other humans (and the occasional robot) that can’t be registered as aliens (obviously). But never fear! They make up for the lack of Woolong delivery with unique abilities of their own!

So register those aliens, earn all the Woolong you can, and may the best Dandy win!
