Dust Bowl Galaxy Rulebook
Publisher: Lagging Dice LLCDust Bowl Galaxy is a space western game of exploration, outlaws and frontier survival.
It is a rules-light low-prep game where you build your starship out of spare parts, crew it with custom made aliens, and go explore the galaxy one randomly (or not so randomly) generated sector at a time. When you blow something up, you weld the leftovers onto your ship, call them upgrades and keep on truckin’.
You are in a tin can with half a dozen other scoundrels and there is literally nothing outside for light years. You are tumbling through a bitter galaxy that used to have a lot more people. You are going where many others have gone before. The trick is surviving to come back.
You are looking for a new rock for your people to call home. And once you find it, the refugees can leave their overcrowded slums to become settlers so you get rich doing the right thing… just this once.
On an unrelated note, you are totally not pirates. “Not in this port, officer.”
This game requires use of playing cards. You may use a couple regular poker decks (and deface them with sharpies), but it is faster to play it with a set of Dust Bowl Galaxy Cards. There are 237 of them in the set, covering all the ship components, gadgets, alien species and their abilities, as well as planets and stars for random galactic sector creation.
This game also requires six-sided dice. About thirty of them will suffice for the whole group. They do not come bundled with the game, but there are many hobby stores that will happily sell you these in a variety of colors and materials.Price: $9.00
