  • At the time of this posting, Our research indicates that this Scorpius Freighter Board Game is $21.08 lower (45% savings) than the next best available price from a reputable merchant with prices starting from $46.08. -SaltyOne
  • Game Description: In Scorpius Freighter, you are trying to gain fame and fortune by moving goods and providing services to the people. This involves not only legal activities like fulfilling contracts and increasing your freighter's capabilities, but also taking on side deals, moving items below the radar, and avoiding notice. Carefully select your crew of smugglers and use their unique skills to perform actions on the three planets of the Scorpius system. Which action space should you go for, and how much skill will you have when you get there? Surpass your fellow smugglers before the Government further tightens its grip.
  • For ages 14 and up. 2 to 4 players. 45 - 60 minutes average playtime.

Scorpius Freighter by AEG on sale at $25 and free shipping.

BoardGameGeek rating 7.2 average with 216 ratings. I haven't played the game, but reviews look good enough for me. For $25 I jumped on it! We own another AEG game, Smash Up, that we like so I'm expecting good things.

Repped. I'd be all over it, but they don't ship to Alaska/Hawaii.

Glad to see that plenty of people jumped on this. I watched a couple videos and it looks pretty good! Smilie

I know from eBay experience that shipping to HI/AL costs extra, that's a bummer Frown

I haven't played this, so I checked on BoardGameGeek. It's only ranked 3815 on BGG, but it also has a fairly low (216) number of ratings. So it could change a bit. Either way, this seems like one of those "if you like the genre then why not since it's cheap" kinda games.

UPS, Fedex, DHL? Yeah, those are highway robbery here. :-P

But I find that merchants simply don't realize that using USPS generally doesn't cost any more to ship OCONUS than to any other state until you start getting into heavy (>10lb) packages. (That or they only use a particular shipping service, such as UPS.) In fact, first class and priority mail are exactly the same cost within weight allowances to all 50 states. Heck, I shipped my 32" monitor here for $40. UPS quoted me $232.

It also seems to have high quality pieces, which always tickles my nether regions laugh out loud

Thanks - Games live and die for me by their BGG scores. I don't have the shelf space for a game in the 3000's. Repped for saving me the research.

Board games are such great value, I watched a couple of video reviews. It sounds interesting enough with a three rondell system. Definitely not directly derivative of anything else in my collection. For $59, I'd give it a wide berth, but for $25, if I play it twice with four players for a sum total of 3 hours that's just over a $2.08 per hour entertainment vehicle.

The game came out in late 2018 at the Essen game festival/convention so it just went to retail through US channels in late 2018, to very little hype or fanfare, which explains the low volume of ratings. I'm in for one, thanks OP, repped!
