Space Base Dice Game Now Available From AEG

Man, I wish I could go out into space. You know, head to distant planets. Take control of huge space stations. Build fleets of ships to help get and trade resources. That kind of thing. Sadly, at the moment, you can only get to space if you're an astronaut or ridiculously wealthy. Being neither of those things, if I want to do all that stuff listed at the top, I'll just have to live vicariously through Space Base, a new dice game available now from AEG.

Plus, the box will be able to hold all your current sets.

AEG's got two new releasing that they've posted up for the month of October. They're even taking pre-orders. One's Mana Storm, a new expansion to Mystic Vale, the deck-building game where you actually alter the cards as you're playing (though not permanently like a Legacy game). The other is Cutthroat Kingdoms (had to keep myself from typing Cutthroat Kitchen there). Here, you're leaders of one of six noble houses looking to take over the throne after the king's death.

There's seemingly endless ways that you can remake Love Letter. The quick-playing game from AEG has a lot of variations out there. Though I think this is the first one with mind-melting insanity thrown in. They say love will drive you crazy, but in Lovecraft Letter, it's more the elder gods driving you crazy. The game's due out in July.
