In an alternate vrsion of the 1960s, America made it to the Moon, but that's just peanuts compared to having landed on an exoplanet circling an exoplanet around Ursae Majoris over a year before. Unfortunately, the Russians had gotten there first. And the Japanese were close behind the US. Now, the race is on to colonize this new planet. That's the story behind Godspeed, a new board game from Pandasaurus that's up on Kickstarter now.
About the game:
Look, it's not that the moon landing was faked.
It Happened. Neil hates the conspiracy theories. The lie is that we ever wanted to go to the moon. We needed a spectacle to show the people. To justify the massive budgets. The agencies.
Neil stepped on a rock 239,000 miles from Earth. Big deal. I stepped on an Exoplanet circling Ursae Majoris 18 months earlier. It's a one-way trip - so there ain't any going home. No ticker tape parade for me, but that's ok. I'm here for my country.
See, the Russian's beat us here by a few months. Japanese showed up a few weeks after us. We'll colonize this planet for America. Because there isn't a choice....
The campaign's making its way to 4x funded with 31 days left to go.
