Space Food Truck Wiki – Cards, Events & Ingredients

This page covers Space Food Truck wiki content including a full list of available cards and planet events to help you deliver food across the galaxy in the digital board game adventure. I’m currently the Space Food Truck speedrun world record holder and have completed all of the Steam achievements and decided that because there is no current Space Food Truck wiki on the web that I would use this page to serve wiki content to the small dedicated community of players.

Any comments are welcome at the bottom of the page and I intend to continue to expand the content over time based on community feedback and input.

Space Food Truck Wiki – Planet Events

Every time players move to a different planet a random event happens which can positively or negatively impact the player. These locations can be scouted which will reveal a string of text that describes what is at that location. These are separate to random events that happen at the start of each character turn.

All bad events except for the wormhole and spacetime flies can be dodged by discarding cards with sufficient power value, this is represented in brackets below.

Bad Events:

  • Accident Prone: Breaks one random door, lab topic or draw pod (1 power).
  • Breaky Bounce: Destroys two items (random doors, lab topics or draw pods) (2 power)
  • It’s All Relative: All crisis events instantly resolve for damage (3 power)
  • It’s Baaack: Players cannot move for 4 turns (2 power)
  • Pirates: Destroys one card from all hands (4 power)
  • Skunked: Dumps all of your FTL drive (1 power)
  • Spacetime Flies: All crisis events are accelerated by 4 turns (unavoidable)
  • Wormhole: Teleports your ship to a random planet and ends your turn (unavoidable)

Good Events:
