Check out the Kickstarter Here!
Chris Backe returns to the Submarine to talk about No Box Games latest project! 
Phileas Fogg and Jean Passepartout needed 80 days, but you'll only need 10-15 minutes. In this print-at-home game with a leader-follower mechanic, one player each turn is the Navigator, which chooses an action that all players must take.
Choose to Travel between cities, Explore the city you're in, or pick up some Souvenirs to fill your suitcase.
When anyone has visited at least one city on each continent and returned to their starting city, the game ends - count up points, and the most points wins!

The Periscope: Galactic Cruise

TK King and Dennis Northcutt join us to talk about the newest hotness of Kickstarter, Galactic Cruise!
Hello, and welcome to Galactic Cruise. Here, we offer our guests something special: the comfort of a luxury cruise with the innovation of space travel. As the first company to offer extended-stay space vacations, we are excited to have you working for us!
As a supervisor of this company, you’ll be expected to not only build these shuttles and satisfy our guests, but also to help the company thrive by enhancing our company network, inventing new technologies, and growing our workforce.
We are a united company, and you’ll often find that what another supervisor does will make your job easier. Let me be clear, though, this is a competition. The supervisor who comes out on top will become CEO of the company.
On your turn, you will either place a worker to take two actions in the ever-expanding network, launch a shuttle and send one of your workers to space as a pilot, or recall all your earthbound workers to collect funding bonuses. Actions include acquiring blueprints, constructing shuttles, attracting guests, and building developments–connections between locations that increase action selection throughout the game. You will also be affecting resource markets that ebb and flow with the actions of all the players.
When you launch a shuttle, one of your workers will accompany it as a pilot, navigating the shuttle to various destinations and “days in space,” where guests will reward you for all your hard work.
Throughout the game, you will also be competing with your fellow supervisors to complete company goals, which will earn you progress cubes throughout the game. Progress cubes are also placed when you launch shuttles, and when a certain number of cubes are placed onto the company’s progress track, the game ends, and the player with the most Victory Points becomes the new CEO of Galactic Cruise.
Do you still think you have what it takes to work for us?
