Games Set in Outer Space

Did you know there are more trees on Earth than there are stars in the Milky Way? Or that there are over 1500 board games about Outer Space? Now you do!

Space. The Final Frontier. 

Or the Final FUNtier – amirite??    (Yeah, I’ll see myself out.)

Anyways, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of games set in outer space. Chances are you’ve played at least one—maybe even when you were a kid. I know I did.

What was it about these games that they made it on this list? Because you can read reviews for each one of them right here on Meeple Mountain!

About the author

Tom Franklin

By day, I'm a mild-mannered IT Manager with a slight attitude. By night I play guitar & celtic bouzouki, board games, and watch British TV. I love abstracts, co-ops, worker placement and tile-laying games. Basically, any deep game with lots of interesting choices. 

You can find my middle grade book, The Pterrible Pteranodon, at your favorite online bookstore.

And despite being a DM, I have an inherent dislike of six-sided dice.
