Az Astray egy remek társasjáték, 2 - 4 játékos részére, az átlagos játékidő hosszabb, akár 1.5 - 2 óra is lehet. A társast, 13 éves kortól ajánljuk kipróbálni. A játékmenet erősen épít a moduláris tábla, a hatszög-rács, a "chit-pull" rendszer, a kockadobás és a munkás-elhelyezés mechanizmusokra.
On December 10th of the year 2031, a commercial flight, with a manifest of more than 300 passengers, departed from Boston. The flight was in route to Puerto Rico. Then a bright flash of white light... Moments later, all of the passengers of Zephyr Air Flight 309 somehow found themselves alive and well on the beach of a strange island surrounded by smoldering debris of their once great aircraft. The survivors picked themselves off the sand and began to search about for sustenance. In a matter of days, the survivors divided into various camps. Four leaders emerged from the masses, each with their own ideas of how to move forward.
