A Game of Set Collecting and Sabotage! It Plays in 5-15 Mins, with 2-6 Players.

"Quick, silly, and with just enough challenge ... Space Slugs delivers and won’t disappoint."     - FATHER GEEK

In route back to your home planet, following a very successful planetary invasion, your spaceship crashes, leaving seventy slugs stranded on a desolate moon.

There is one option for survival - the only functioning escape pod!

In SPACE SLUGS each player takes on the role of a Slug Officer, and are tasked with recruiting a crew of 5 different slugs to activate the escape pod and flee the desolate moon. 

Problem is, there is only one escape pod, so the officer that is able to form his crew first, will be able to activate the escape pod and flee, leaving everyone else to an uncertain future.

The game is played clockwise around a table with players either playing slugs cards from their hands, into play, as their needed crew members. Or playing action cards, which allow them to swap slugs around from player to player, make players lose their turns, or even remove slugs completely from the table.

And game play continues until a player has, in play, each of the 5 different slug cards. At which time that player promptly wins!

A Quick Turn Overview

On your turn do the following:

1) Draw a card from the Draw deck.

2) Do only 1 of the following options:

• You may play ANY slug from your hand into play.

• or Play an action card, and complete its action.

• or Discard a slug you have in play, and replace it with a different slug from your hand.

3) Discard a card from your hand only if you did not play a card.

After a card is played or discarded that player's turn ends, and the next player to the left then takes their turn, and so on.

Risks and challenges

As with any project, and especially this being our first project, there are a number of risks we anticipate. We've been hard at work to minimize all, if not most of them, and are confident that we will be able to deliver Space Slugs before the end of April 2015.

We foresee 3 possible sources of delay. Artwork, manufacturing, and shipping.

First, the artwork/graphic design work is about 90-95% completed, a few tweaks will undoubtedly be needed for the final polished product.

Second, The manufacturing process is relatively simple, and we have chosen Panda GM to be our printer. We've been in talks with them and are confident that they will be able to deliver to us and to you a very excellent final product. Manufacturing is estimated to take between 4 to 6 weeks.

Third, shipping. Following a "short stint" on the slow boat from China. Once we receive the game, we will ship Space Slugs promptly out to you, the backers.
