With the invention of Jump Drive, the race for the galaxy begins! Develop new technologies and settle worlds to build a space empire. Find winning card combinations!
Jump Drive is a fast-paced card game that introduces players to the Race for the Galaxy universe. Can you build the most prosperous galactic civilization?
Your goal is to have the most victory points after someone reaches at least 50 points. Once everyone has had an equal number of turns, the game is over.
During your turn, you will score points by paying for them in cards. For instance, to play a 3-cost card, you will need to essentially discard three cards from your hand. You can play one development and one world a turn. If you only do one of those two actions, the development is either cheaper or the world lets you draw a card. Besides those two actions, you can use your explore token to spend your turn focusing on drawing cards.
Cards will help you build combos or draw more cards. Some will have special abilities that affect income or scoring. Military cards can help you take care of hostile planets which offer great rewards but have planetary defences. In other words, you need to plan specifically to conquer them.
You are constantly drawing cards and using them to activate the best options in your hand. The trick is to not let your hand deplete too much or you will have serious economic problems.
The game plays in about 20 minutes and your economy will ramp up quickly to match this.
It is simpler and short than its older sister Race for the Galaxy, so why not give it a try ?
We would like to thank Tom Lehmann, as well as the team from Rio Grande Games for the licence, and the hard work from Kayvon and Mogri who made the BGA adaptation. Now you can play it almost anywhere!
