Galaxy Runner

Game of Interstellar Cargo Transport and Space Adventure

YOU ARE NOW A GALAXY RUNNER : A freelance interstellar transport starship owner-operator working your way up through the Stellar Transport Guild (STG). You'll need to work the space lanes in order to raise funds. The STG pays you to carry goods they’ve warehoused throughout Sector Z. Shipping payment schedules are more lucrative for longer shipping routes to planet systems with high demand.

Look for the best deals, upgrade your ship, drive hard, and keep flying!

Along the way, you can expect to face fierce competition from your fellow ship captains, hostile pirates, and deep-space monsters. However, you’ll find that it’s all worth the risk when you discover an unexpected reward from a salvage operation or two! All the while, you'll be building your reputation as you strive to earn admiration and respect from STG higher-ups. Word of your prestigious and somewhat wildcat ways will spread throughout the Galaxy!

Galaxy Runner balances skill, strategy, and luck for a fun, exciting, and highly adventurous game that is played in phases. Runners fly their ships from system to system to pick up cargo and make deliveries. The Sector map expands as Runners explore, opening new trade routes to farther reaches of the Galaxy. Use earned credits to purchase STG shares and upgrade starships in order to travel longer distances, carry more cargo, and win space combat challenges.

The Galaxy Runner who earns enough Guild Credits and accumulates at least the minimum amount of Prestige points will be eligible to be voted onto the STG Board of Directors as Chairperson of the Board. The first Runner to be voted Chairperson wins!
