You are a team of newbie astronauts sent on an actual mission in an actual spaceship in actual outer space! Exciting, right? It would be...if any of you actually knew what you were doing. Would have been nice to have at least one experienced pilot on board, but now that you're here, you'll just have to figure it out as you go along.
In Noobs in Space, a team of three to five players must complete a series of tasks and challenges together, using what little knowledge you have. Not all hope is lost because each of you has a small part of the solution; you just need to figure out how to put it all together. While one player may know the task at hand but not have the resources to implement it, those resources may be shared among three other players. They, on the other hand, do not know what is necessary based on the information they have. Since players cannot show cards to each other, there must be a lot of clear communication and interaction by describing or reading out cards in order to gradually find out what should be done — and all of this must be done as quickly as possible.
The story leads through several levels, and each level consists of several tasks, so the whole game is an action-packed event from beginning to end.
