Introducing our new ‘Astrology’ addition to EPHEMERIS, devised to bring together facts about our ‘physical’ universe with the mystical sense of being, that has, through the ages, driven human desire to explain our purpose here under the stars and our psychological relationship with the ‘heavens’.
The object is to be the first player to collect 5 Astrology ‘prediction’ cards. When you declare you have a Planet, Sun or Moon card and a Zodiac card ‘pair’ which matches the position of a piece on the board and you give a correct answer to a question from the Solar System Quiz pack, you win the ‘prediction’ card for that ‘conjunction’.
Planet cards, Zodiac cards, Astrology cards and the Quiz cards are all used in the game.
The ‘prediction’ on the Astrology card may apply to your character or your week ahead. It is up to you what you make of it but, of course, this is only a board game just for fun and sociability whilst including amazing facts about the Solar System!
Moving a Planet
On your go, if you do not have a pair of cards which match any board positions, you must move one Planet piece or the Sun or Moon. You may move any piece, i.e. you are not restricted to moving only the pieces you hold cards for, no-one @owns@ the celestial bodies!
– as apply in all the Ephemeris Games.
(The full set of rules for each game variation is included in the game box)
