Ephemeris Astronomy game
Follow the natural laws of the solar system in this intriguing astronomy board game.
The Sun, the Moon and the Planets are your playing pieces. The playing board represents the constellations through which they move.
But beware! – the ‘Outer’ planets cannot pass the ‘Inner’ planets and none can pass the Sun or Moon.
On each turn, players move one of the celestial pieces around the board using the simple strategy of these ‘overtaking’ rules which either help or hinder you or your opponent(s).
The concept is simple with only a few rules to get your head around.
