Galaxy Truckers Spaceship

Galaxy Truckers the board game

One of my favorite board game genres is "tile laying." In this type of game, players place tiles to assemble something - it could be a castle, or a landscape. In Galaxy Truckers, you're building a spaceship. Truckers spaceships always end up looking lopsided and weird, because it's hard to plan their layout much in advance. After you build it, you use a deck of cards to determine what happens to your ship as it picks up and delivers stuff (that's how you score points).

Isaac and I enjoy building Galaxy Truckers ships together, so I decided to build one out of Legos. I think I captured the vibe. The laser came out better than expected!
