A new space race has emerged, and your government wants to lead the charge, promising gold bars for new routes to new planets. You immediately sign up as a pilot on your government’s spacecrafts seeking a new adventure, and, well, the gold bars are nice too. What your government didn’t tell you was that another country and their government is trying to beat you to these new planets. “Well,” you say to yourself, “the race is on!”

You are trying to create new paths to new planets for your government. Your government, in turn, will pay you and the other space explorers gold bars for your risky endeavor. Your government has determined how valuable new routes to the new planets are by agreeing to pay a set number of gold bars, as indicated on each planet. The number of gold bars is the total payment for the entire crew, not just one crew member. Each crew member gets an equal portion of the gold bars. Gold bars that can’t be split evenly are taken back by the government. You are trying to become the richest space explorer by obtaining the highest number of gold bars as possible. For a short game, the first person to 500 gold bars wins the game. For an average game, the first to 750 gold bars. For an epic game, the first to collect 1,000 gold bars is deemed the winner.

In this download you will get, the game board, the spacecraft cards, the black hole cards, as well as the instructions on how to play.
