About

 The space race is heating up with a new space-themed board game for kids aged 6-160. 

 So Much FUN! 

The year is 2019 and here on planet Earth, we are faced with a big decision: Are we to deplete Earth’s natural resources, surely guaranteeing our species extinction, or will we expand our reach into the great unknown and seek the riches outer space has to offer? 

Playing as the CEO of one of 4 space exploration companies, the goal is to be the first player to build their fleet of ships and explore beyond our Solar System. Space awaits - it’s up to you to make smart investments while sending your rocket ships to planets, moons, and eventually out into the Galaxy! 

As you explore and build you’ll be seeking untapped resources for sale on the interplanetary market. You can grow your capital, increase your fleet, and expand your holdings within the Solar System—but one false move, and your organization will be on the wrong end of the space boom. 

Will YOU be the first to reach the stars?

This game lets kids of all ages build their space empire by working hard for resources and making savvy investments, one at a time. My goal with the game is to help preserve the future for our children's children, by educating the current generation about the extraordinary possibilities that exist today. 

Thank you for your help! 

GALACTIC SPACE EXPLORATION™ is a 1-4 player game where you manage your resources, buy and launch rocket ships, and aim to be the first to head out into the vastness of space in the ultimate space exploration game!  Best for kids aged 6 through 160.

Players must learn to master the market, investing wisely to grow their resources and their fleet of rocket ships.  

Who will be first to explore the Solar System and the Galaxy?

One of my goals is to help preserve the future of our children’s children, by educating the current generation about the possibilities that exist today, so I’ve included tiers that will allow you to donate a copy of the game to a school of your choice! Simply provide the name and address of a school of your choosing and I will send it there on your behalf. 

 *If you’re a game retailer and are interested in stocking GALACTIC SPACE EXPLORATION™ in your store please contact me! I’d love to hear from you.

Space travel is an ambitious feat, and the further we get the further we want to go. Likewise, I'd like us to keep reaching higher and further with this project, so I've set a few stretch goals that I'd love to see us reach. 

Rewards will be added together as goals are reached.  

Expansion & Poster - If we get to $13,000 raised, all backers will receive the Level 2 expansion for the game when we print it in the future and a free Space Exploration PDF poster they can download and print!  

Games for Sick Kids - If we reach $26,000 raised, I'll send 10 copies of the game to St Jude's Children's Research Hospital!  

More Games for Sick Kids & E-Book For All - If we reach $52,000 raised, I'll send another 20 copies of the game to St Jude's Children's Research Hospital and all backers will receive an illustrated Space Exploration e-book to download! 

Hi Friends! 

I’m Josh and I love space exploration and investing, so I created a game that combines the two in a fun way. Now that I have, this is a game I wish I had growing up! I’m 100% invested in this project and in helping our current and future generations learn about the endless potential of space, wise investing, and searching for a future beyond our wildest imaginations. 

Sincerely,

Orders will be fulfilled / shipped directly from the game manufacturers fulfillment center which is currently located in Asia. This is the fastest way to get the game sent to you once it's been manufactured. For this reason, shipping will cost $18 for US addresses and $22 for addresses anywhere else in the world you are, but is available WORLDWIDE. 

All games will start shipping July 1st, and most countries can expect delivery before July 15th.

Risks and challenges

I already have the game designed and ready for production, with manufacturing and distribution lined up, so risks are very low. The only potential challenges at this stage are the possibilities for delays in sending rewards due to any unforeseeable printing/manufacturing issues, or issues with shipping. I’ve done all I can to plan for these and mitigate the impact it will have on delivering your rewards to you in a timely manner.

Should any issues arise I’ll be sure to be transparent throughout the process and keep you updated on what has happened, what I’m doing to fix it, and when issues have been resolved.
