You won't want to miss the near 20% Black Friday discount off the board game Space Base. One of its expansion packs, Space Base: Command Station is also on offer, but is now only available from third-party sellers at Amazon. Both games are on great deals at Amazon while supplies last. You should also pick up the last expansion Space Base: The Emergence of Shy Pluto (at regular price) to complete the set.

The dice-based game includes retro space artwork from Chris Walton for your viewing pleasure. Your job is to get promoted over your one to four other Space Base Commodore players who are competing for economic prestige in the space fleet.

In the base game, every player participates with each roll of the dice. You'll have to choose between increasing your baseline income, accumulating credits for a future turn, or taking some other action to lead you to victory.
