Play as MISSION CONTROL and ASTRONAUTS. Work together and strategize to complete flight stages, overcome obstacles, repair the spacecraft, and keep communication clear. It’s the team that determines if the mission SUCCEEDS or FAILS.

One player takes on the role of Mission Control on Earth, while the other players are Astronauts up in the command module. Astronauts must guide their craft through multiple flight stages by maintaining their flight systems including life support, power, comms, and flight control by rolling dice and assigning them to their tasks.

This is a version of Scrabble for players aged 5-12 featuring a double-sided board. The introductory version resembles more a crossword puzzle in which all the possible words have already been spelled out. This is an aid to learning about spelling. Points are earned by completing words. The reverse side is an entirely blank grid [1], leaving players to come up with their own words. A point is earned for each letter placed. Letters are formed from cardboard tiles and do not have values.

Players represent corporations competing to assemble city buildings in their orbiting planets and install them onto specially-prepared platforms in the city districts. Each player wants to construct the most living space in the blocks that feature the most desirable improvements (Greenspaces, Spaceports, and Megamalls). Players can also erect Billboards at a loss, to entice customers and to reserve space for future construction. At the end of four rounds of play, the player who has earned the most points is the most successful developer and the winner of the game!

The object is to cover your board with the small picture cards.

Each player chooses a time board showing pictures of various times of day.

The players take turns to draw from a pile of time cards and announce the time on the card. Players check their boards for the time and the player with the correct board puts the tile on it.

The first player to fill her board shouts “Time Out!” and has won the game.
