Briefest Write-Ups in history continue!! 😬

Hello all! It has been a hectic and fun start to the summer and well… I just HAVE to get a ton of new stuff onto the site… and so… these write ups will be my amongst my shortest ever. πŸ˜… Sorry for the lack of poetic ramblings and video links and such!

Clearly I am spending too much time relaxing, traveling, and fighting the 50’s at the gym! I need more hours in the day, darn it! Where do I put hat request in? πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚πŸŽ‰

Bundle details

This Upstart bundle includes the first two installments in the newly minted, Final Frontiers Games, Pillars of Creation!! Solani is a really fun abstract game and The Girl Who Made The Stares is a puzzle, worker placement and tile laying puzzle! And, they are a BLAST to play!

As many of you know, I have been a huge personal fan of Final Frontiers since I first got into the hobby and found Rise to Nobility (which, if you don’t have yet… needs to be added to your collection! It’s one of my favorite worker-placement games!! Anyway, I’m excited to see what the rest of the Pillars of Creation series brings us… and I cannot wait for Bardwood Grove to release ❀️… but for now, we have these two gems to tide us over!

I could go on about gameplay and the good people at Final Frontiers.. but in the interest of time, I’ll leave it here. Sorry folks! Time… my nemesis! πŸ™„

But, before I go.. please check out the link to the original Kickstarter campaign for a better feel of all the goodness packed into these two awesome games!

Solon and the girl who made the starsSolani and The Girl Who Made The Stars! The first two installments of the Pillars of Creation series by Final Frontier Games! So much goodness!!Β πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ‰


Populate the night sky with beautiful constellations assembled from uniquely shaped tiles.

Solani is an abstract tile-laying and drafting game for 1-4 players.

Players will assemble constellations to be set into the sky, taking turns selecting two different shapes of tiles in a unique β€œdouble-headed” snake draft, before laying them onto their personal board. Properly connect the stars, observe the roaming planets, and correctly identify the placement of celestial bodies to complete your constellations puzzle in the best possible way.

After twelve rounds of play, Coyote grows impatient; he grabs the edge of the buckskin rug and tosses the rest of the quartz skyward – creating the Milky Way.

The Girl Who Made The Stars:

The girl reached into the wood ash and grabbed a palmful, and as she blew it from her palm, the ashes swirled and churned as they moved skyward, lighting up the once dark skies.

The Girl who Made the Stars is a worker placement/tile-laying puzzle game for 1-4 players based on a San African myth about the creation of the milky way and the stars.

In the time of the first people, the night sky was dark and featureless. The village elders prohibited venturing out into the dark starless night for fear of the dangers that lurked there. One night after her mother cooked dinner, a young girl, frustrated with these restrictions, took a bit of ash and roots and cast the red and white embers into the sky, forming the milky way and the other stars, in an attempt to illuminate the night so the villagers could safely collect resources necessary for their survival.

As a village elder, gaze upon the new stars in the night sky and discern the forms of constellations to provide wisdom and illumination to the village. Draw constellations into the earth, with your depictions gaining light, stars, and stardust for the village. Then, as villagers guided by this newfound light, venture into the surrounding darkness to collect much needed resources, including fruit, fish, and small and large game. The resources you collect for the village will boost your reputation, and the player with the highest reputation at the end of the game is the winner.
