A board game for up to 4 players by Néstor Romeral Andrés
Space Defenders is a tribute to the arcade games of the 70s and 80s. Up to four players must defend earth from hordes of attacking invaders from outer space by eliminating all of them before they reach the bottom row of the board. Warning! Friendly fire activated!
Components: board (10×6 grid resembling an arcade game screen), 4 spaceships of different colours (the defenders), 4 tokens of the same colour as the defenders, 4 bomb tokens, one mine, carrying case, 70 invaders (cardboard square tiles) in two types: space monsters (1 tile) and flying saucers (2 tiles). Monsters come in 5 colours depending on their value (number of eyes). The defenders, the mine and the bombs are made of 3mm thick laser-cut acrylic.
Update: You can now order the 'Upgrades' for just 6 EUR (see pic below). Email me for that. Also the price of the base game is now lower. If you've purchased the game before June 2018 the price for one copy of the expansion for you is 3 EUR.
