Xtronaut: The Game of Solar System Exploration

September 20th, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

Rarely do I come across an educational game that makes me wish I was back in Science class way back when I was a wee lad…”Xtronaut: The Game of Solar System Exploration” did that to me and then some.  Almost half of the rulebook is a workbook containing interactive activities like crossword puzzles while other parts teach you about the very science you’re “playing” with throughout the game.  It’s easily a thumbs up from me and can be found (as of the date of this posting) on Miniature Market for about $25…Amazon lists a $35 price (use the sidebar search tool to send a little change my way), so I’d grab it from the former unless you have Amazon Prime (free two-day shipping).  The components are top notch so I decided to do a video tutorial / review, so go check it out below before you leave this page.  My only real complaint was that the game didn’t come with a couple of baggies or rubber bands to hold the cards while the box was closed for non-use.  Special thanks to Game Designer Dante Lauretta for providing me with a press copy for review purposes.
