Space Cadets

It was your lifelong dream – to join the Star Patrol and be part of the crew of an interstellar spaceship. You worked hard, graduated from the Space Academy, and received your first assignment as part of a team of young recruits, confident in your training and ready to be put to the test. You are the Space Cadets and this is your first voyage aboard one of the starships in the Star Patrol.

In Space Cadets, a cooperative board game from the Engelstein Design Family (Brian, Sydney and Geoff Engelstein), 3-6 players take on the roles of the respective Bridge Officers taking control of one of the six Bridge Stations of a starship. Each officer must accomplish his specific task, so that the team successfully completes the mission.
You can assume the role of:

Helmsman - plotting the ship’s course through asteroid fields

Engineer - using dominoes to get enough power to each system

Weapons Officer - completing puzzles to load the torpedoes and then flicking a disc down a track to launch them at the enemy

Shield Officer - using tiles to form poker hands to get the strongest shields protecting the spaceship and its crew against the enemy fire

Sensor Officer - using your sense of touch to scan and lock on enemy targets

Captain - setting the overall plan and making sure that everyone stays focused on their task and does their job

If your crew can work together to accomplish the mission goals, you just might make it back home in one piece.
