Blood in Space is a 1-2 player game following the exploits of a small crew of adventurers as they traverse from planet to planet, explore derelict ships, or fight Imperial forces. It uses the same game mechanics as Blood on the Blade, which you can find in previous posts on this blog. The game has simple, yet interesting rules, several missions and enemies, and lots of options for campaign play. The latter includes a nice flow chart that logically sets up what the crew's next adventure will be, a mechanism that strengthens the narrative flow of your overall story. The new 2nd Edition of Blood in Space also incorporates a randomized star ship room cards with matching terrain tiles used for playing scenarios on space ships.

Now, on with the story of the crew of the Free Trader Quixote.....
Captain Cortez- reluctant leader of the crew, and also the ship's medic. She is armed with a Laser Drill and a good old fashioned knife.
Maroon- a good soldier and crewman who (for some reason) is abundantly pleased to be away from the main space lanes. Maroon is armed with a Blaster Rifle.
Chuck- Chuck is just Chuck. He carries a shotgun and hopes one day to be an engineer.
"Princess" Katya- a Psyko with PSI powers. Her LasGun has a stun option, in case she wants to play with her prey.
"Happy" Harrison- lives up to his nickname, especially when he has something to point and fire his heavy blaster at. When aboard ship between missions, however, Happy gets entirely too grumpy.
Played cooperatively with my son. The game rules handle enemy AI.
