SPACE EXPLORERS (25th Century Games, 2 to 4 players, ages 12 and up, 20-40 minutes; $30)
In 1957, in the middle of the Cold War, the Soviet Union shocked the world with the launch of Sputnik I, the first artificial man-made satellite to orbit the Earth. The ripples from this scientific achievement were astounding and the race for space was launched. It is this race that players will become a part of as they head a Research and Development Hub in a Space Research Center competing with others to complete the most projects and recruit the most effective team of scientists in Yuri Zhuravlev’s Space Explorers.
