This game was created so everyone can experience in a fun way how the ancients felt about their world.
You will understand how important the cycles of the day and night skies and sky events were to the ancients, and how it effected everything they did.
It will also test your knowledge of the moon, the planets, myths and world archaeoastronomy architecture, artifacts and alignments.
You are learning the cycles of the sun by actually moving the sun as you play. The Sun moves very closely to how we experience the sun moving in our world.
You will understand how the sun cycles signal the seasons of the year to the ancients. They had approximate ways of telling time like candles, water clocks and dividing daylight into 12 hours no matter what time of year it was. The Sun and Stars were extremely important to them.
You will get to play around with being a good leader, a bad leader and a complicated leader
How the game is played:
Earth Goal (board 1):
The player chooses a Star Map (leader or ruler) that will decide which building, star totem and constellation they'll be. This decides what geographical location their Sol Cards (trivia questions about archaeoastronomy) will have in their deck.
The goal is to get your construction site, your building, your totem, and the sun (flashlight) to all line up during your turn. Once that's done, you can now go to the Heaven Board and become a 'God on Earth.'
Heaven Goal (board 2) and to Win:
To have one or 2 jewels, depending on if you choose to just have fame for one generation or a constellation forever named after you and you are known for a thousand years. It is up to the player to decide what kind of win they want.
Actual Mechanics, Earth Board:
The Sun is moved every month (all players take their turn) and the Festival Card the Sun is pointing at is played. After the player plays what the cards says,
if the player gets a correct question card, you can roll the die and move. If it's incorrect, it goes to the next player.
If it's a Star & Fortune card, then the player does what it says.
Actual Mechanics, Heaven Board:
The time is the same as the earth board and you move with the sun. You take a Heavens card every turn and do what it says. There is messing with the Earth Board cards, messing with other players and earning and losing jewels.
