The Space Race has begun! Which nation will make it to the moon and pull out ahead?
“No nation which expects to be the leader of other nations can expect to stay behind in this race for space.” – John F. Kennedy, May 25, 1961
The newly elected president John F. Kennedy gives a speech to the nation, touching on several crucial points. One of them is the conquest of space, and more precisely of the Moon. He promises that, by the end of the decade, an American will set foot on the moon. This sets off a race between the countries with the most advanced space technology to be the first to conquer space. You are in charge of the space program of one of the nations competing to be the first to the Moon. You have to plan your research strategy, hire brilliant scientists to improve your technical achievements, and perform training missions, all with the ultimate goal of delivering a man to the Moon… before the end of 1969!
The game was a critical darling of Essen and sold out very quickly. We would like to work with Cranio Creations to produce a second printing of the game for American audiences who missed out on the first printing. This second printing will be the same high quality game as the first edition with some great additions if we can hit the stretch goals. We have some really exciting stretch goals in mind for everyone so let’s take this project to the moon!
