Product Description

Much of planet Earth is in deep trouble. Everyone is fighting. Not enough food, energy or other resources for the growing population. So, our space program is sending a huge space station with a team of astronauts into the universe to find another planet with a suitable place to live that will have new sources of energy, food and minerals as well. Our mission is to find this information and bring it back to Earth for the benefit of all.

The first game is for ages 5 to 7, the second for ages 7 to 12, and the third for ages 12 and up.

This game doesn't play to completion. There are many flaws in the concept and in the play. Played it twice and both times we got to a point where the game ended and couldn't continue. Also, the board and box and pieces look like someone made this game up in their basement. It could have been better if they had tested it first.

Puzzling Review
January 02, 2010

Editor's note: This review from the author refers to the customer submitted review below titled "Homemade".

The review makes incorrect assumptions. All three levels of the game were rigorously tested and refined over a period of 3 months for some 50 times with helpful input from gamers aged 6 years to college age. The few complaints resulted from some confusion about the rules. A careful rereading cleared up the misunderstandings. These were usually about the third level game, the most complex version. If we missed something let us know. We welcome helpful suggestions. As far as the production values are concerned, we admit that we don't always go for the cadillac look, but in this instance we are proud of the cool artwork, the thick components, the heavy duty game board with the European folding slit to make the board lie flat and the painted hardwood markers that are second to none. Made up in someone's basement, indeed!
