About

Spaceonauts!™ is a competitive card game for 2-4 players of all ages. Players compete to build the most impressive spaceship they can before they launch into space at the end of the game. The player with the highest amount of points—determined by the Ship, Spaceonaut, and Launch cards—by the end of the game achieves victory!

What makes Spaceonauts! great?

 

Accessible

ANYONE can play this game, with easy to understand rules, and a fun theme! A game usually takes anywhere from 20-45 minutes, depending on how many players are involved.

Different every time

The planet changes every single time you play, which determines how you build your spaceship!

Creative

Spaceship cards are tileable, meaning that YOU design the spaceship however you want!

Cards

There are six types of cards in the game: Resource cards allow you to purchase Ship cards to build your spaceship.

Ship cards count for points at the end of each game and cost Resources.

Action cards are played to help yourself, or to cause chaos for other players.

Launch cards can be purchased after building a full spaceship. Buy all three launch cards and the game ends!

Environment cards are drawn at the beginning of a game, to add point modifiers.

And last but not least, there are the Spaceonauts – intrepid explorers of the final frontier. Use Spaceonauts to gain points or play them to deny another player’s Action cards.

Gameplay

Each player starts with seven cards in their hand. An Environment card is drawn to provide point modifiers for the match. Each turn starts with the player playing as many cards as they want from their hand. They may activate as many Action cards and spend as many Resource cards within their turn as they would like. Any used cards go to the Discard Pile. Ship cards and Launch cards stay in separate piles for purchasing. When a player decides to end their turn, they draw two more cards from the Draw deck. If the Draw deck runs out during the course of the game, simply reshuffle the Discard deck and use it as the new Draw deck. 

Scope of Project

As of today, we need 17,000 USD on Kickstarter.

Stretch-Goals

$25,000 - Spaceonauts!™ Extraterrestrial Extravaganza

In the Extraterrestrial Extravaganza Expansion, we will add more strategic, family-friendly fun with tons of new mechanics, cards and... aliiiiens! With new ship, action, and resource cards, you can expand on the already awesome base set of Spaceonauts!™.

More goals may be added throughout the campaign

If there is enough interest in the project, we may decide to work on more stretch goals - more expansions, merchandise, translations, etc.

Distribution

The games will be successfully manufactured and shipped between 95-125 days after successful funding. It will take ~150 days to ship those games to all who nab a copy.

  • Spaceonauts!™ and all rewards will be shipped free of charge both domestically (US) and internationally

The game itself will be manufactured by Ad Magic:(https://www.admagic.com/)

Meet the team

As current and former students at the Savannah College of Art and Design, we have catered to the one thing that truly unites us all—our never-ending love for games. Spaceonauts! was originally an assignment for class, but after tremendous encouragement and positive feedback, we developed Spaceonauts! further to share with families and friends around the world!  

(Vincent studies Interactive Design and Game Development, Ruo Yu studies Sequential Art, and Alexia is an Animation major)

Risks and challenges

The game design is finished. We only need money for the manufacturing, shipping, and distribution of the game. The biggest challenge for us is the distribution of the game - however, the game is already retail ready and trademarked.
