So sorry... this game is SOLD OUT 😒

Briefest Write-Ups continue… dark days of limited rambling ahead! β›ˆοΈπŸŒͺ️

Hello all! It has been a hectic and fun summer… and well… now it’s already fall?!?! Where is my life going? Anyway, existential crises aside, I just HAVE to get a ton of new stuff onto the site… and so… September 2023’s write-ups will be yet another entry into the “my shortest ever” tour books. I’m starting to sound like KISS with their “FINAL WORLD TOUR… number 563… and this is the last one.. really!!” schtick.

I miss that band being on the scene. Ah, memories…

KISS Army for life! ❀️🫑

Anywho… Sorry for the lack of poetic ramblings and video links and such! πŸ˜…

I’m doing the best I can…

“…and I guess my best wasn’t goooood enough” [thank you James Ingram and Quincy Jones… now I’m teary eyed…πŸ˜‰]

Did I already use that in another listing? Yes… I did. Was there a version of Johnny Rotten from the Sex Pistols singing this? I feel like there was.. but maybe that’s just some twisted dream segment from my teen years… πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…

Hey… what’s that over there?

SQUIRREL! πŸ˜† <attempts to distract people from his clear laziness in copying that last bit from another listing… again>

moon and valkyrieThe Deluxe edition of Moon and the Valkyrie Expansion bundle is here! (with the screen-printed rovers, of course!) Another SOLID production by the good people at Sinister Fish Games! YES please! πŸŽ‰

Moon depicts an almost plausible rush to construct lunar bases that are attractive places to live and work for the people of Earth. The most prestigious base will become the new lunar capital!

The game employs the familiar “pick & pass” or “hand drafting” mechanism for players to select a new structure cards to add to their base. Each hand of cards represents a convoy of experts and equipment travelling between the players’ outposts, giving the player the choice of one new construction each turn. In a new twist on the genre, each hand always contains one of a number of “Expedition” cards that grant a special free action every turn before passing on to the next player.

Wooden lunar rover tokens are a neutral resource that add a worker placement element to the game. They are also used to break ties and so must be used with care.

Over the three distinct eras of the game, players compete for majority in 5 aspects of their bases: housing, transportation, science, industry, and food production. At the end of each era, the leader in each of these areas as determined by flag icons on their constructed buildings, collects bonus victory points.

Each game also features a number of randomly selected “Reputation” cards which provide one-time or ongoing bonuses for the player who meets the requirement and claims the card.

Moon is the third game of a loose trilogy, preceded by Villagers and Streets.

Valkyrie Expansion

Blast off for Earth in a lunar-made Valkyrie spacecraft and bring back amazing new technology from the home planet!

This expansion for Moon includes a Valkyrie token for each player. Once per era, you can place your Valkyrie on the launch board, taking a bonus as you do – the earlier you launch, the more choices you have. Then, pay the resource cost to obtain a new structure card from the special market. New cards will be available in each era, including such wonders as Beef Trees, Rover Factory, and Wormhole. These are added to your base, giving you even more opportunities for maximising your engine and constructing the most popular city on the Moon!

Also includes three new Expedition and Reputation cards for the base game.
