Board Game (ages 8+)
"This fun game will test your knowledge
of astronomical science and technology. While Mars (a big
red marble) orbits the outer ring of the game board, you'll
navigate the inner three orbital rings in an effort to be
the first to land on Mars. To take your turn, roll the red-and-white
dice. The red determines the movement of Mars, the white controls
your spaceship. Landing on Mars is not easy--it's a volatile
planet that is constantly on the move. And Mission Control
may have some bad news regarding the malfunction of your spaceship.
To fix the malfunction, correctly answer a question on a Spaceport
Repair Card. Each Repair Card has two questions, one easier
and one more difficult; players decide at the beginning of
the game at which level to play. At either level, get ready
for the trip of a lifetime! The game booklet includes information
about Mars as well as a glossary of astronomy-oriented words."
