About this Game
The aim of this board game is to set satellites and space stations in their orbits. You do it by gaining and investing Know-How (KH) when sending crafts to fly around with various measuring devices. The higher, the better as it brings more KH. But beware of other players… They may be more clever or cunning or shifty than you think… When pressed too hard they may decide to turn their crafts into weapons…
The game can be cooperative when everyone is trying to earn KH and put both satellites and space stations in the orbit. But it can also be quite nasty when winning at all costs becomes a prerogative. It’s up to players to decide…
This game is designed for 2-4 players and will take 30-60 minutes depending on your chosen win states:
– have most KH
– have most satellites at space stations
It can also be played by 5-6 players, but then the experience can be quite intense.
Expansion “FRONTIER,” by adding interstellar rockets, landers, and habitats, allows players to reach the Moon, Venus, Mercury, and the Sun!
