You have landed with 3 other specialists on a distant planet; future home of a new civilization. You've barely set up the core of your base when a proximity alarm sounds — an incoming meteorite storm is on course to obliterate your new base! You might just have time to activate the shield generator...

ExoBase is a small-box, solo, card-based worker placement game that challenges you and your team to build a self-sustaining base in the hostile environment of a distant exoplanet. 

Shortly after breaking ground, you discover incoming metorites that will pulverize your base in a matter of days if it is not strong enough to sustain a shield generator. 

Each round, move founders to different cards to build, upgrade, or work a location. Working a location produces resources which are used to build new locations, or upgrade existing ones in your base.

The goal: build a self-sustaining base that can power the shield generator before the meteorites destroy your new home.
