HIGH FRONTIER 4 ALL (Ion Game Design/Sierra Madre Games, 1 to 5 players, ages 14 and up, 30-240 minutes; $69)
Since childhood, space travels and stars have fascinated me. When I started to get into board games, those with a space setting always attracted me in a special way. The theme of space travel and colonization of other worlds recurs in many titles. Unlike other titles, High Frontier 4 All deals with space travel in a very strict scientific way. In fact, we talk about the exploration and colonization of our solar system, starting from the Moon and Mars and gradually towards the extern planets and other celestial bodies. Phil Eklund has accustomed us to games in which the aspect of simulation and attention to the historical and scientific element is a central part and actually in this, the fourth edition of this title, the theme of the exploration and colonization of the solar system is approached rigorously with a complete revamping of the rules to make the game more accessible.
