AstroNavigators is a board game simulating the celestial mechanics within a space race themed worker placement game. During the first (astronomer) part of the game, players will be travelling across the Earth in order to complete celestial observations. This way, navigation knowledge (NK) is gathered for the space race endgame. The second (astronaut) part will use knowledge points to tackle technical and navigational obstacles. By efficiently using the on-board lunar telescope, sextant and gyroscope, players will push their luck with their newly acquired and cunning abilities. As an astronomer, players will explore different cultural settings and discover anthropological links with astronomy.
While the time keeps on ticking and the celestial bodies keep on shifting positions, players scan the world for clues and means to finish some objectives in order to be the best prepared astronaut at the space race.
Different scientific discoveries will unlock powers of astronomical instruments to shape time and space to your favour. The evolution of astronomical instruments marks new possibilities in obtaining the ultimate skill to reach for the Moon.
During the astronomy part of the game the best and only the most necessary choices need to be made. The optimal strategy with the right cultural ability needs to be exploited to gain the perfect timing to leap ahead.
Once players are ready to push their luck, they will shape the future of Earthlings. Whether it is a trip to the Moon a half a century ago, or in the near future, the knowledge of the stars will guide each player towards another world. The investments in past observations and the acquired abilities before launch will help to mark your fate as the best or worst astronavigator.
You need to anticipate moves of other players and take the necessary, yet minimal, risk at the right time! The first able to master all the spaceflight techniques to the Moon and back is the ultimate winner of the game!
