KEPLER-3042 (Placentia Games, 1-4 players, ages 14 and up, 60-120 minutes; $89.99)
Kepler-3042 is a Kickstarter project that has, as most successful Kickstarter games do, stepped into the normal boardgame market as well. It is from Placentia Games, a publisher of some really good games (starting with Florenza in 2010). The designer, Simone Cerruti Sola, is a new name for the games market. I’m always been thrilled by 4X games. Actually I am also thrilled by 3X, 2X, X or, in general, space-themed games so I was happy to try the prototype and, after the release, play the full game.
