Take The Galaxy Kickstarter Announcement Press Message

Kickstart exploration into a new galaxy on May 30 with the Take The Galaxy Kickstarter.


On the 30 th of May we will be launching a €7,200 Kickstarter for our new sci-fi card game Take the Galaxy. Players compete against each other or in a solo game mode to earn the most Renown as they explore and colonize an unpredictable galaxy. There are dozens of unique cards representing the wonders of unknown space as well as the colonies, industries and space craft which players can build. With the sheer variety of cards, no game will play out the same! The game is already tested and polished, and the Kickstarter will cover distribution and production starting costs.

Any coverage is much appreciated!

About Take The Galaxy


Number of players: 1-4*             

Time required: 45 minutes                        

Recommended ages: 8+

You start off with a frontier colony built on a habitable planet. The planet cannot support more civilization colonies, but it does have the logistical potential to expand with a utility colony. Will you aim to seize valuable mineral deposits, and use the income from mining operations to finance expensive high value colonies? Or maybe you prefer to focus on science, and the renown from being the first to research the wonders of this new galaxy? Construct enormous space ships to boost your economy, or cut corners and use moral flexibility to gain an advantage – these are hard choices, but your faction is relying on you!

Take the Galaxy Key Features:

  • Playable solo or with friends: Enthusiastic board gamers will know all too well how it feels to have a long list of games to play and only so many evenings with friends! Take the Galaxy was designed to be 100% playable as a solo experience, as well as with friends.
  • Distinctive art style: Every card has detailed and colourful artwork, capturing both the glorious and the grim sides of the race to explore new space
  • Strategic but not slow: The cards which are drawn will offer a range of possibilities, and it’s up to you to form a winning plan. Although your options are extensive, the game minimizes book-keeping and can be played in 45-60 minutes.
  • Depth and replay ability: The way the game plays is designed to reward smart thinking and an adaptive playstyle above memorizing optimal plays or slavishly following a single strategy for the entire game. Every game will call for a different approach.


  • 3-4 players requires another set
