This game is hard from me. But part of the fun is not having the perfect ship and hoping it can hold up. It is fun to see another player's ship ripped in half, as long as you can laugh when it happens to your own.

Nice thematic wacky game. It seems in the last few games that it is a bit easy to have a good ship (maybe we are too good? ). But it is still a great game with some very refreshing mecanisms.

[Update]A truly original game that well deserve its 10. Only real time game that actually works (if you cheat, or do something bad there is a penalty before the Adeventure begins). The bits are awesome.

Adding The Big Expansion to this makes it really more difficult which actually improve the game!

I would give this an 11 if it went that high. One of the best games I will ever play. I can't REMEMBER the last time I had so much fun paying a game with my family. Universally loved by everyone in the house, even when 6 strait large meteors cut your ship in half!

I have not 1, not 2, not 3, but a lot of plays behind me. And my friends are saying: "This game is like an epidemic in the clubs. You can see it in every club on one or more tables. And the players are laughing all the time."

Can you get more? Fun and replayability in tons.

Learning curve is very fast---someone with one or two games will crush a newbie. Not clear yet whether that learning curve will continue upward. The free expansion looks good for adding eventual variety.

Rerated 10 with expansions.

Board game crack.

Much more control than some give it credit for. Every attack can be prevented with proper ship building, and there is definitely room to keep getting better. If you get your ship blown apart it's probably your own fault, though you can also luck out and sneak a crappy ship through. I expect as we keep playing, scores will continue to rise.

EXCELLENT rules, theming, and components, all with a sense of humor. Great fun, and absolutely highly recommended if you like speed games, puzzle games, factory fun, or just plain fun.

It's not too long by any means. The last game we played, we extended the game even longer with the 3a ship.

I really hope this gets a US release, and many expansions. My new favorite game.

Rating after one play. The game seems to be guite well balanced and fun. Fun-factor doesn't come out of interaction but rather watching the other players' ships take hit and fall into pieces.

A fun game filled with agonizing moments as you watch your carefully crafted ship suffer horrible indignities.
Update: I moved my rating up a point. Almost everyone loves it after one play.
Update: I added another half point. With the big expansion, this game has really held up over time. There are always big laughs and big groans throughout each flight.
Update: I finally moved it up to a 10. Definitely deserves to be up there with the greatest of games.
Update: This game really endures for me. It is one of the few games where I would never, ever turn down a chance to play.

The Theme alone screamed "BUY ME" and the game play alone said "GOOD BUY!"

This is also becoming my new "second tier" of gaming (my first tier or intro tier is more like Ticket to Ride or Settlers) So far everyone who has played has really enjoyed themselves.

As of today, this is my new number 10. Between the chaos of ship building, the timer and than the destruction, Galaxy Trucker really is one of my favorite games.

This designer is one to watch for; many of his games have been quite good and are all very diverse. With this title, his witty rules delivery and wacky theme creation are on display, big-time. It's a multiplayer solitaire game in which players repeatedly construct spaceships, only to send them hurtling through the galaxy to be blown to smithereens. Spaceship construction is done in real-time, which makes for tons of laughter and all-out madness. If you like a game that doesn't take itself too seriously and is just plain fun, get this game...NOW, do it now!

Update: After playing countless times with several different groups, I'm liking it more and more. I'm increasing my rating from a 9 to a 10.

This game is ridiculously awesome. It has two problems:

- It's less fun if players have different skill levels. Although the game has a silly, somewhat random feel, it rewards skill overwhelmingly.

- If you get too good at it, your ship often doesn't suffer much damage at all.

Both these are helped quite a bit by the Big Expansion, which lets you increase the difficulty and allows handicaps.

Wow! One of the most tiring games I have ever played. Lots of excitement, tension... Excellent! Update. A game where experienced players will always beat newbies. But fun just the same as ships get blown apart! Winning is incidental in this game. It's all about the fun of experiencing the game.

Tremendous fun, great theme, very well done components, and an amusing rule book add up to a 10 for me. Galaxy Trucker is one of those rare games where it's nice to win but no one really cares about winning: it's extremely satisfying just to go along for the ride and survive. [8 plays]

UPDATE: Recent addition of the Big Expansion makes GT more like a 10.5!

There are plenty of games that are fun when you're doing great, but are boring when you're doing poorly. Galaxy Trucker is one of those rare games that are fun every time you play it, even if you're doing poorly, and especially when everyone is in trouble and struggling to make even a single cosmic credit of profit to make that trip worthwhile.
Experience does help in this game, a lot, but with the team play variant, you can pair a seasoned trucker with a newbie and have a more even trip. Or you could use the great (and free) rough road ahead -expansion as a compensation.

If you don't take this game too seriously, it is pure fun... build your spaceship against the clock, and against your fellow space truckers, and then watch as bits of it get blown out of the sky by pirates, slavers and other miscreants.

The ship-building aspect definitely suits some people more than others.. probably those with good spatial, mathematical or engineering skills, and with good hand-eye co-ordination too!

The space exploration aspect has some decisions to make, like stopping for cargo, points etc. and sometimes it distinctly helps not to be the lead ship... however a lot of the outcome of the exploration is pretty random with die-rolling to see where your ship is hit etc. But it's always funny to watch half your ship float off into space because one key component gets taken out that was holding everything together.

Galaxy Trucker stands out as a spectacular game from the most ingenious board game designer in the world. The timed building aspect of the game is something very unique, very fun, and rewards repeated play. Expansions that make the game optionally harder for experienced players, balance out the gap in ability between new and veteran players. Thematically strong and mechanically tight, Galaxy Trucker stands out amongst any other game I've played. Highly recommended.

iOS implementation amongst the best digital board game ports ever made. Absolutely rekindled my love for this game. Czech games and Vlaada are the best.

5 on the Cindometer (she does not like the timer aspect!)

The building of your ship is the greatest part of this game. It is such an exciting and competitive time. Once you start moving into the adventures, though, the excitement dies down a little. Only in the longer treks of round 2 and 3 do the adventures start to get hair-raising.

Regardless, this is a lot of fun and actually quite simple to learn and play. It also doesn't have much down time, as a bulk of the game is spent frantically building.

Excellent game! Even though it is very frustrating to have the timer turned on you by your opponents and even more frustrating to watch your ship fall apart, there is something satisfying about each round. Folks looking for something heavy and strategic should move on. This is all about building a ship and watching it go kablooie! Oh, and it absolutely oozes theme. Great great game.

Highly entertaining game where you build space ships out of spare parts (like Factory Fun only much more fun), only to watch them get battered or even break into pieces. Some of the funniest moments in gaming come when a well directed meteor or cannon splits a ship in half, even if it's your own you can't help but laugh!

Even better with an expanision and/or using the 3A ship for the third round!

The Big Expansion is essential for experienced players.

I really had my doubts about GT, but I still bought a used copy around 2008. How glad I am to have picked it up. Not only was it my first experience in the world of Vlaada, it was also absolutely a hilarious experience.

My one argument though is that players need to be on a similar level.
