Exoplanets - astronomy game board on Kickstarter

Post by shemko » Mon May 25, 2015 6:23 pm

Hi, I’m a illustrator, game board designer and a big enthusiast of astronomy. About 2 years a go I made a draft of a board game where you create unique planetary system with special tiles, tokens and various markers. Many of the mechanisms involved in the universe is freely used to the needs of game mechanics for keeping the educational aspect. The aim of the game is to create and sustain life on available planets.

People really liked the idea and design of a game but I had no time to finish it so project died in the end. Fortunately about year ago Board&Dice (https://www.facebook.com/boardanddice) a polish publisher sent me an e-mail with information that they want to try publish my game.
After an year of work game was finally complete (title of game is Exoplanets) and 4 days ago we started a campaign on Kickstarter.

I write this thread to ask you about your opinion about game and to kindly ask to publish information about Exoplanets Kickstarter campaign on your facebook profile, websites or anywhere :) I think this game it's not only an entertaining product but also has and educational aspect.
Besides our project on Kickstarter donates 1$ from each game bought for the laser construction project (Fisher team, Yale Lab) which supports the search for exoplanets (more information in campaign description).


Thank you,
Przemysław Świerczyński from Poland.

Wow, thanks for your efforts. You picked up some really interesting things. I only skimmed over, but now I'll take a closer look. I think I'll find a lot of interesting things here.
