Two different ways to play – The Strategy Game or The Quiz Game:
The Strategy Game:
2-4 players 10-25 minutes Age 12 -adult
The challenge is in moving the Sun, the Moon and the Planets on the board into positions which match the cards in your hand. But beware of the ‘Overtaking’ rules which restrict your choice of action!
The Solar System Quiz Game:
All the Family 40-50 minutes 2-7 players (or teams)
Over 200 fascinating questions based on the planets, their moons, the space missions and many of the stars that make up our universe. A choice of A or B answer is given on the card.
Object: To be first to make one complete orbit with your chosen planet. Clock up your score on the score-pad provided!
The concept is simple with only a few rules to get your head around.
On each turn, players move one of the celestial pieces anti-clockwise
around the board using the simple strategy of the ‘overtaking’ rules:
‘Outer’ planets may not pass ‘Inner’ planets and the Sun may not pass the Moon.
