Description Edit | History

In AstroNuts, you'll fly through space with your AstroShips, land on mysterious planets, meet the strangest aliens, extract new resources (the so-called "Nuts"), and found colonies. When all the planets of the galaxy have been discovered and all the "Nuts" extracted, the player with the greater number of colonies wins, claiming the vaunted title AstroNut!

Starting from their home planet 2-4 races start exploring the galaxy throwing dice. However landing on another planet can be dangerous, but there can also be unexpected assistance. In each case there are raw materials - the so-called "nuts" - to gather to build more ships, to establish colonies and to buy technological advantages. Every player can poker to increase the number of his possible actions each round. Whoever dares to do so may also attack other races in order to take over their colonies. The one who founded the largest number of colonies will be ruler over the Galaxy.

Components:

  • Galaxy game board
  • 12 AstroShips, three per color
  • 80 Resource coins (the "Nuts"), twenty per color
  • 60 Colonies (the pawns), fifteen per color
  • 2 D6 dice

More Information Edit | History

Target Group:
The game is intended for casual gamers and families. The rules are not complex.

Gameplay / Tension / Complexity:
At the beginning of the game, players have free choice in the colonization of the planet and will visit the ones nearby. As the game progresses, players meet each other with their spaceships or on the planet and there are first fights. Toward the end, the players then try to deliberately harm the other players and take over their colonies.

Game Drive / Emotions / Psychology:
In this little game conflict is in the foreground.

Core Elements / Mechanisms:
The die is an essential element of the game here. It controls actions and events. This is overlaid by a poker-like aspect before rolling the dice, in which players are betting on a result and will be possibly be rewarded accordingly with additional options.

Strategy & Luck:
The random aspect is prevalent with the dice results which is an intentional part of the game.

Look and Feel:
AstroNuts uses pawns from the game "Nautilus" (Kosmos), as a modern form of recycling here. They are a perfect to the theme though.
