Blast off into fun and learning with Planet Voyagers! Tour space and conduct planetary research in this social science board game that focuses on astronomy and strategy. Ready? Let’s launch!
Planets, Asteroids, and Comets, Oh My!
In Planet Voyagers, players journey from planet to planet, sending out research probes to earn points. While they travel, they learn interesting facts about the celestial bodies near and far. Players read their voyager cards and data boards, learning important facts about planets, moons, asteroids, and comets. Simultaneously, players analyze their voyager cards, as well as the movements and cards of other players, adapting strategies and making decisions that help them score points. The first player to land their rocket on the planet Neptune or to score 12 points wins the game.
How To Be the Top Voyager
At the start of each round, each player chooses a single card to play from their hand, being careful to choose a card that helps them earn the most points. Certain cards move individual players rockets to the next planet, while others help players research planets to earn points. Points can be earned by moving rockets across the solar system, earning research tokens, and playing cards with point values. Once a player’s score reaches 12 points or their rocket reaches Neptune, that player immediately wins the game. Planet Voyagers is great for 2-5 players ages 8 and up and takes about 30 minutes to play. Each game box includes a ‘fun facts’ solar system poster for continued learning after gameplay.
Out Of This World Fun!
“Planet Voyagers is a great way to introduce the solar system to young learners.” said Patty Pearcy, President and CEO of SimplyFun. “Curiosity is sparked when players uncover important facts about the solar system, while other meaningful skills such as strategy and decision making are practiced throughout game play.”
