A production error has been identified which affects a small number of the cards in the Emergence of Shy Pluto expansion. The error results in those cards having different colored card backs than they should which means that when they are on the top of the draw deck in the market, you’ll know that a Shy Pluto card is due up next.
While we believe this has a very minimal effect on gameplay, we also know that some players will want this error rectified. AEG is going to take action to address this problem.
If you find playing with the misprinted cards too distracting, we are going to make a small number of replacement card sets available for free. These replacements are in production now and we expect to have them available for distribution in a month or two. If you have purchased Emergence of Shy Pluto, and you want this free set of corrected cards, please fill out the form below and we’ll send you information on how to obtain them. If and when we have issued all the sets of corrected cards we have produced we’ll alter this message to indicate that they’re no longer available.
An intergalactic dice game of fleet management for 2-5 Space Base Commodores
As the commodore of a Space Base, your job is to draft new ships into your fleet to work and patrol the 12 sectors under your watch. Use cargo vessels, mining ships, and deploy carriers to earn profits and expand your influence. Only one Space Base commodore will be promoted to U.E.S. Admiral of the Fleet!
The first Saga Expansion for Space Base!
This expansion to Space Base is a collection of story-based scenarios that introduce new content to Space Base via a narrative structure. Not only are new ships added, but new scenarios are included as well. Once the story is completed it may be replaced or the contents can be mixed together with your Space Base core game.
The Big Box to Hold Everything!
Following the events surrounding Shy Pluto, two new zones within known space have opened up. The Admiral has promoted two new Captains to the rank of Commodore to command these new Space Bases and work their sectors!
Command Station allows players to expand their games of Space Base to include two more players. Now six or seven Commodores can compete for the promotion to become the Admiral of the U.E.S. Fleet!
Designed to be large enough to hold Space Base Base, the Shy Pluto Expansion, and additional future expansions all in one convenient storage box!
