How to Set Up Galaxy Board Game

Galaxy Game - a Free Printable Game for Kids

Put the Board Game Together

  • Print all four printables (if more than two people are playing, print out two star sheets)
  • Cut out all of the game piece squares

If you think you’ll be using the game frequently, we recommend printing the board and all of the pieces out on heavy cardstock.

Laminating everything will make it hold up to game playing longer and you won’t have to print it out over and over again. You can store everything in a handy file folder, pocket folder, or even in a gallon size zippered plastic bag – whatever works best for you and your game storage solutions!

Set Up the Board Game

  1. Pick out your game piece astronaut.
  2. Shuffle the deck of cards and start playing!
  3. The instructions also appear on the printable sheets

Game Directions

Interstellar travel is easy. All you have to do is get from start to finish. Draw a card then go to that destination. if you draw a destination which is behind on the intergalactic highway, you may have to travel backwards. Single stars are for advancing one space on the intergalactic highway. Double stars advance two spaces. you must draw the exact number of stars to advance to the finish. If you draw 42 the nearest alien spaceship will pick you up as hitchhikers! Don’t despair, if you are on the alien ship and draw 42, you will be transported to the end of the intergalactic highway and win.

How to Store Your Printable Board Game

The wonderful thing about free printable games is that you can save them to play later. I like to paste the game board into a file folder or keep them in a binder. I use ziploc bags for the loose parts.

Our Experience Playing the Space Board Game

We just started family game night with my four year old and we don’t have a large selection  of games. So, we play go-fish….a lot!

I’ve been trying to find fun and colorful printable games that we can easily download and play right away.  So, I’m thrilled to share this adorable galaxy game that is perfect for lots of different ages – even my preschooler (and me, too)!
