What Will You Pack for Space?
In space, no one feels truly prepared.
Today’s Quest: You’re off to explore the galaxy! Bon voyage, space traveler! Upon your return, we’ll talk about our IRL adventures in Table Talk, and you’ll have one last chance to win cool prizes!
First time here? Adventure Snack is a game series I email to subscribers. Play quests for free, twice a month, and turn your inbox into an adventure!
This is it. You've completed your many years of astronaut training, and after a long, laborious selection process, you've earned the only seat in the first manned ship headed out of the solar system. Your mission: Fly off as far as you can into space, exploring new worlds and bringing new knowledge back to Earth about what's out there beyond the Solar System.
"And don't come back until you've found something good!" your captain told you after final drinks at the bar last night. You plan to take the mission seriously -- space won't explore itself, after all. And the first step on any journey is almost always the same: it's time to pack.
👏 Today’s quest was created by Mike Schramm, a writer, podcaster, and video game researcher. When I put out a clarion call for guest designers a few months ago, Mike answered. Thank you, Mike!
LAST CHANCE TO WIN THE EASIEST CONTEST EVER
I’m giving prizes to players who refer new adventurers from now until October 5th! That’s only a week away.

So far, three adventurers are getting prizes: Cindy, Korey Hart, and Chris Robinson. It’s still anyone’s game.

Last chance to win a thing!
When your quest is complete, it’s time to debrief. Join your fellow adventurers at the virtual D&D table we call the comments section. Your comments are like rare loot. Please don’t hoard them. Share them with the party!

🧳 What did you pack? Was it helpful on your journey?
✈️ Have you done any traveling this year? My partner and I just got back from our third trip to Las Vegas. We had a blast! We finished the “story mode” of my favorite cultural work of all-time, OmegaMart. It’s a grocery store from another dimension that sells mutated products and has a sinister backstory. We joined the rebels to help overthrow the reckless executives. Afterwards, we celebrated in the secret bar, Datamosh. Folks, I can’t recommend OmegaMart highly enough if you’re in Vegas.
🪐 What fictional planet would you love to visit? For me, it’s Plazir-15 from The Mandalorian. I want to chill with Jack Black and Lizzo in a pleasure palace, and if I play my cards right, get knighted like my main man Baby Yoda.
