The conquest of space was one of the main human achievements of the 20th century. In 1957, the first satellite named “Sputnik 1” has been placed into orbit. Four years later, Yuri Gagarin has performed the first human space flight on “Vostok 1” ship. This game is dedicated to the first space explorers – i.e. all the outstanding people who have made spacefaring possible.

You recruit the best specialists, place satellites and manned spaceships into orbit, and launch interplanetary stations. The one who creates the most effective team and implements the most ambitious projects wins!

Each player becomes the Head of a Research & Development Hub in the Space Research Center. You recruit best Specialists to your team and produce various space projects – from placing satellites and manned spaceships into orbit to launching automated interplanetary stations.

The game is over when the players complete all the available Projects or when one of the players recruits 12 Specialists to his/her team. The Specialists and Projects bring you Progress points. The most successful player who managed to gain the highest amount of Progress points wins.

Space Explorers is fully consistent with the spirit of the ‘Golden Age’ of astronautics. Concurrently, we have introduced a number of conventionalities to make the game more interesting. As Yuri Gagarin said at the moment of his launch: “Let’s go!”
