good game, but limited replayability
April 16, 2000

The excellent graphics and historical summaries on each card make this game really neat. For this reason, this game is a great educational tool for students learning about the space program. Unfortunately, the game has some flaws. The instructions are a little hard to follow. It does not take long for the typical gamer to realize that Apollo missions are the easiest to complete despite all of the equipment they require. Their rockets are fast and the cards numerous. After a while of playing, few Gemini and almost no Mercury missions were played. And the easiest mission of all to complete? It is the moon landing itself. All in all, for space enthusiasts or people who will not be playing it often, it is a great game. For those that would like to play this regularly, try something else.
