Space Movers: 2201 is a cooperative sci-fi adventure board game that takes place in the year 2201. You and your fellow players play the role of crew members on board the space ship Liberty, which specializes in picking up and delivering cargo from planet to planet in the system. Your job as a Mover is to get the cargo to its destination as efficiently as possible while avoiding drawing too much attention from the Universal Oversight (UO).
The UO is the corrupt and evil government elected by the planets to police the system. They watch all movement through the system to keep order and dispatch UO Scouts to chase down and interrogate Movers who have been spotted delivering cargo. If you draw too much attention from the UO, your job will become impossible. You and your fellow players must work together to deliver cargo, avoid UO Scouts, and quickly handle any Events that pop up along the way.
To win the game, you need to complete a set of five Objective Cards. These cards directly continue the story that begins in the included graphic novel Finding Liberty. A 20-card random objective card deck will also be included with the game, allowing players to choose five cards from this deck for a fresh experience each game.
UNIQUE DICE-ROLLING MECHANIC:
One of the most unique features of Space Movers: 2201 is its dice-rolling mechanic. The game box includes a specially designed roll board where rolls take place, one die at a time instead of all at once. For each skill needed in the check, one die will be rolled needing a 5 or higher for success. Players are encouraged to strike dice already rolled in an attempt to change the result as needed. After all the dice are rolled, one last roll is made using the blank six-sided die, signaling the end of the skill check and giving the player one last attempt to change any previous die results.
COMIC BOOK AND GAME SOUNDTRACK:
The game comes with a 20-page comic book called "Finding Liberty" that sets the story and tone for the game. Players can continue the story as they complete objective cards that match the comic book. Additionally, players can listen to the official game soundtrack on their computer or smartphone for an immersive experience.
Space Movers: 2201 is designed for 2-7 players and takes around 45-60 minutes to play. The game is easy to learn but difficult to master, with endless replayability and a thrilling storyline that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
