Galaxy Game - a Free Printable Game for Kids

How to Set Up Galaxy Board Game

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)!

  1. how do we print them for free? I only see where you need to pay. Thank you.

  2. This is not FREE – and you have to join Paypal to pay – this is a very misleading post.

    1. OMG! Thanks so much for letting us know. We are fixing that now! When we say free, we really do mean free. Sorry for the confusion.

  3. Francisco says:

    Hi, thank you for the free game! 🙂 I was able to download it for free without any trouble.

    I’m confused about one line in the directions, though. When you draw the 42 card “the nearest alien spaceship will pick you up as hitchhikers”. What does that mean; where are the alien spaceships? Or does it mean that you have to take your astronaut off the board, and hope to draw 42 again?

  4. I would love to download this game, but when I clicked the link instead I got the 25 Screen-Free Activities printable. Could you possibly send the space game to me or update the link?
