Finally, info about new language versions
over 3 years ago – Thu, Jun 27, 2019 at 09:13:30 PM

Hello all! It wasn't easy decision. We got revised quotations, we checked our budget many times , we talked with people from the board game industry. Finally we have it. We will prepare for you 6 language versions of Exploration! 

#1 - New language versions

Ok, but how it will work? Let me explain. You don't have to do anything right now. After campaign we will send you a survey and we will ask you to choose your language version. Currently we don't have rulebooks in other languages, but don't be afraid. We will have for this at least 2 months after campaign, before we will start mass production. 

This is all for today. I realize that you will have more questions. Please write your questions in comments, we will answer. And one more thing, remember to become a fan and subscriber on BGG. 

Kind Regards

Hello all! It's been some time since the last update and many thing happened in the meantime. We are in the middle of the campaign. It was great 5 days! Since the last update, we unlocked 8 campaign goals.

Unfortunately, still we don't have an answer for question about language versions. I apologise for that. We do not want to make hollow promises, but we promised that you will get a new information about it. Currently we are working to remove all limitations and just send you printed game version in your native language. It is not easy that's why we need some more time.

#1 Stretch goals

We unlocked 4 strech goals: updated space map, metor shower, space debris and space station . Next stretch goal is new base card for solo game - Mars! More about solo rules you can read here

#2 Collectors miniature

We already reached maximum size of our collector's miniature - 180mm! Some of you wrote in comments that you will paint this miniature. This is great idea! We would love to see your job and we are very excited!

#3 Social media achievements -> BGG achievements

We are so close to unlock next BGG achievements! We unlocked 2 secondary missions card (strictly connected with Jupiter's Moons) as well as Io Capture card, which is very important during flight on Jupiter's orbt.

At the end I have to mention about your great ideas for game improvement like, Ceres, Japanese spaceport (faction), Indian faction. Feel free to share with us more of your ideas how you will improve Exploraition. I'm very excited, to hear it from you!

Thank you for supporting us!

Kind regards

Space mine unlocked! BGG achievements.
over 3 years ago – Thu, Jun 20, 2019 at 02:10:03 AM

Hello all! Let's summarize our current results.

#1 Stretch goals

We unlocked another strech goal - space mines. Next stretch goal is new hazard card. New card is an example of hazard cards shouldn't be always bad.  While exploring the space, you can find an interesting object or space area that will become your new mission. 

#2 Collectors miniature

We are getting closer to maxmimum miniature size. We unlocked 155mm and we need 23 backers to unlock 170mm!

#3 Social media achievements -> BGG achievements

As we promised, we are changing now the rules in social media achievements. From now on all additional achievements concern BGG. There will be two activities: becoming a fan and becoming a subscriber. If somone doesn't have account on BoardGameGeek we highly encourage to register. It is the biggest forum about board games and you will find there many interesting threads about new and classic board games.

At the end I want to announce that next step in improvement of our campaign is the revision of language versions. We are working on it and in the next update we will share with you the latest news.

Kind Regards

6th goal unlocked - Laser cannon!
over 3 years ago – Mon, Jun 17, 2019 at 05:53:43 PM

 Hello all! Today I'm proud to announce that we already unlocked 6 campaign goals!

#1 Stretch goals 

We unlocked Laser cannon, thank you! The next Stretch goal is another very important item. 

Space mine is another new module. You can add it to your spaceship in the  same way as other modules. It costs 1 credit per module. You can drop  it anywhere on the map except special points (it works exactly the same  as GNSS). Mine will keep position on the same tile per whole game until  someone will destroy it. There are two ways to destroy the mines.

  •  First is impact, but after impact you will lose your spaceship.  Damage of the impact is always critical and it destroys your/opponent  spaceship. Unfortunately there is no bonus for destroying the spaceship  by using a special mine. 
  • Second "safe" way to destroy the mine is using a laser cannon module or DR Icarus special ability. 

You can also bypass the obstacle with no energy lose when your spaceship maneuverability is greater than obstacle. 

#2 Social achivements

BGG achievements are going quite good. We unlocked Nanotechnology card and we are on a good way to unlock IO capture!

#3 Miniatures unboxing

In the latest Gamerati vlog from 1:30 to 2:50, you can watch miniature unboxing. Minitures were sent to reviewers to make preview videos.


I have also additional question. Our FB achievement is not on a good way, but me and my team want to unlock additional missions and Jupiter Solo card. What do you think about change FB achievement? Feel free to write your suggestions in comments. Our proposal is to make only BGG achievements.

That's all for today. Have a nice day and see you in the next update!

Kind Regards

1st Stretch Goal unlocked and...
over 3 years ago – Mon, Jun 17, 2019 at 04:40:59 PM

Hello all! Sorry for a long time without update, but we are working very hard to improve this campaign for you. In this update I would like to summarize thing we currently achived, introduce you next stretch goal and... I have a surprise.

#1 Stretch goals

Congratulations we unlocked modular board! With this stetch goal outer space exploration will be much more exciting and surprising. 

Next stretch goal is even more interesting. Maybe it doesn't look epic. It is only a cardboard token, but definitely it change th game in a great way. It's time to present Laser cannon. If we unlock this stretch goal every spaceship will be able to have a range attack. The rule of this range attack is same like for "Laser Beam" spaceship. Of course Laser cannon has less damage, but we can add it damage using multiple modules on one spaceship!

#2 Collector's miniature size is now 140mm!

We unlocked bigger size of miniature! Thank you!

#3 Surprise!

We prepared for you the Social Achievements. From now we all have a chance to unlock  additional game content. 

To do it, you need to just click on the image below or in Social Achievements on project page and share post or became a fan of Exploration on BGG. 

Thank you for support and see you in the next update!

Kind Regards
