Preorders for TIME ‘N’ SPACE now open!

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Stronghold Games is proud to announce that Preorders for our next great 2013 Summer release…

Time ‘N’ Space

… is now open!

And here is more information and pics on this great game…


Time ‘N’ Space

Here, where space is endless and time is precious, you face the challenges of a true space commander. From the bustling hub that is your control center, you coordinate your planet’s production, transport, and demand, and travel to other planets to fulfill orders.

Time ‘N’ Space is a real-time, action-selection, production management, pickup-and-deliver game for 3-4 players, which plays in exactly 30 minutes. In that time, you must produce goods and manage as many deliveries as possible to fulfill the demands on planets, while the other players are trying to do the same thing.

However, the most unique aspect of Time ‘N’ Space is the action-selection mechanic, whereby each of your actions requires the flip
of a one-minute sand timer. Each player has only two of these timers available, so you’ll need to keep a cool head and your communication channels wide open to arrange for the most opportune deals with each of the other players!

Time ‘N’ Space is played in exactly 30 minutes. A 12-minute introductory game is also included.  Soundtracks for both the 30-minute and 12-minute game are available for free download on the Stronghold Games website!

AND… The FREE Stronghold Games Timer app, available in the Apple Store for iOS or in the Google Store for Android, supports Time ‘N’ Space. The Stronghold Games Timer app will play the 30 minute (or 12 minute) soundtrack and/or can be used by a single player to run the 2 one-minute action timers for the game.
