About


We have decided to cancel the project. Help us make it right next time by completing this survey. You can also subscribe to our mailing list to be notified when campaign relaunches.

 Bossin‘ Space is a cooperative game of spaceship command, unidentified terror and chaos in the comm room. 1-4 players will try to pilot ONE SHIP together. You will travel across the universe as explorers into the unknown and fight “unwelcoming” aliens along the way. How to survive in space and finish the objective becomes a challenging puzzle. 

All players work together to survive in deep uninviting space, fight the waves of enemies and defeat terrifying bosses who are about to boss the space. You know what dangers await you on your turn, but you can never be sure what command cards are others contributing to control the ship. Let´s just hope you won´t be in charge when your ship is about to explode! 

The danger cards showcasing upcoming threats are revealed

Each player SECRETLY chooses a command card

 Reveal the cards and discuss the best strategy 

Arrange command cards in the timeline

Cards take effect on the game board

Want to see the gameplay in action? Watch our playthrough of the game. It will give you a great example of how the communication and tactics work. If you are interested in solo play, Rahdo did an amazing video.

Experience different adventure every time you play. Basic game mode lets you create a unique deck of enemies that you will encounter on your journey and fight one of the bosses at the end. Kickstarter edition of the game will provide you with distinct prepared episodes, where gameplay differs drastically. It also means more variable basic game mode, since you can use new enemies alongside with the basic ones.






Are you a solo player and want to be challenged? The game works with imperfect information and rethinking the strategy on the go. It works great in solo too! You will draw two hands of cards, one at a time, and select two cards from each. You also return unused card to the very bottom of the deck, so you must think about what to save for later. You can never be sure you will have the right cards to execute your plan and must adapt as you progress.


Cooperative games and “Alpha” players

We are well aware of players that tend to control other players actions. To overcome this problem, we have prepared mechanics that ensure everybody gets to be the commanding pilot who decides the final order of the command cards. They have the final word. Also, no one can tell what cards to play. And finally, we have prepared enough unknowns to bypass the problem of “one right decision” or solution.

Time Slug Studio consists of two game designers. We pride ourselves on our own unique art style. All illustrations were created by the co-designer of the game, Jindra Pavlasek. This is our second Kickstarter, first being Whales Destroying the World card game. Follow us on Instagram and like us on Facebook, or just reach out to us to learn more about Time Slug Studio!  

Risks and challenges

The game will be manufactured in the European Union and we don’t expect huge time delays. Partnered manufacturer provided us with estimated delivery time and costs.
This is our second international project and we’ve designed, created and published board game in the Czech Republic and we have made our best to ensure everything will go as smoothly as possible.
