Space. We're on the cusp of a new age of exploration of our solar system. Some say the first person to step on Mars has already been born. But while actual space exploration takes a lot of time and money, we can still enjoy going out among the planets vicariously through board games. Xtronaut lets you do just that, and a new edition is up on Kickstarter now for you to check out.
From the campaign:
XTRONAUT 2.0: The Game of Solar System Exploration captures the real-world thrill and challenges of planetary exploration. This game gives players ages 8 and up the chance to develop space missions and explore the solar system. The game is a revision to XTRONAUT, our hit board-game launched in 2015. We added new actions, new spacecraft, improved game mechanics benefiting from the feedback of our many customers, more actions inspired by real-life, additional space missions, and support for six players. The game is based on real planetary missions and rocket science. It contains elements of politics and strategy that are inspired by the situations that space missions face.
The campaign's already up and over its funding goal with 23 days left to go.
