The Search for Planet X Now Available

Unless you're Duck Dodgers, you might not know how to get to Planet X. And if you've misplaced your astro-astrolobe, you'll have to settle for giant telescopes. That's what you and your fellow astronomers will be doing in The Search for Planet X. Of course, only one of you can be the first to find it. Make sure it's you. This new game is available now.

From the website:

At the edge of our solar system, a dark planet may lurk. In 2015, astronomers estimated a large distant planet could explain the unique orbits of dwarf planets and other objects. Since then, astronomers have been scanning the sky, hoping to find this planet.

The Search for Planet X is a board game where players take on the role of astronomers, using observations and logical deductions to search for this hypothetical planet. Each game, the companion app randomly selects an arrangement of objects and a location for Planet X following predefined logic rules.

Each round, as the earth travels around the sun, players will use the app to perform scans and attend conferences. As they gain information about the location of the objects, they'll mark that information on their deduction sheets. As players learn the locations of the various objects, they can start publishing theories. This is the way that players score points.
