Darkrock Ventures – Board Game

In Darkrock Ventures, each player is in control of their very own, small, independent, deep-space asteroid mining ship and a skeleton crew. Each mining venture will receive corporate sponsorship through the Darkrock Ventures Deep-Space Mining Consortium and will be given its own unique advantages as they set out on their task of extracting as much of the valuable metal ore from the asteroid as they can in the shortest amount of time possible. (There are other companies working against you, after all!)

The core of Darkrock Ventures, runs on a very clever “Shared Dice” mechanism; players will be rolling their own special Mining Rig Dice and pairing one of them with one of the three standard shared dice in the middle of the board. When one of your dice plus one of the shared dice make one of the totals shown on the various mining sites on the board, you are able to collect that resource… but only if you assigned a worker there beforehand or you manage to move one of your crew-members there mid-round.


  • Darkrock Ventures is a worker placement board game about deep-space asteroid mining.
    • Each player takes control of their own Asteroid Mining operation with little more than a ship and a skeleton crew.
  • Corporate Sponsors are assigned to give each player some resources or credits to start the game with and then it is a race to extract as much wealth from the Asteroid as you can before the game ends when the Asteroid is nearly depleted.
  • However, danger awaits! A vicious alien threat known as the Therion Marauders lurks in the shadows, waiting for ideal opportunities to delay you with targeted strikes on the Asteroid or surrounding Satellites.
  • Prepared Miners can spend resources to power the shields and protect their crew, lest they are forced to flee and waste their action for the turn.
