Description Edit | History

The tactical game set shortly after the big bang...

The Big Bang: emerging from nothing, matter explodes into being and over time unites into celestial bodies composed of different elements – with everybody trying to secure as much of those elements as possible.

In this tactical game, players send their astronauts from one celestial body to another to collect elements located there in various sizes and combinations. The value of these elements, however, won't be fixed until the end of the game, and the players can use the effects of gravity to combine or separate heavenly bodies, thereby increasing or reducing the value of their elements for opponents.

Urknall received a special prize in a game author's competition sponsored by Spielmaterial.de. The task was to create a new game with given materials, and the author received this prize because he used nothing more than the materials given instead of adding additional components.

More Information Edit | History

Target Group:
The game is aimed at both experienced and casual gamers. The rules are not complicated, once you have understood the basic assignment for scoring.

Game Play / Tension / Complexity:
Until about the middle of the game players have sufficient placement options on the heavenly bodies available. After that, the choices are less and it is more important to occupy the right places. Time also to use the meteor (special move).

Also it is in this period that the first gravitational separation of celestial bodies happens, which the players can either use for themselves or against the other players. Since the game is decided by a final score, there is an increase in tension towards the end.

Game Drive / Emotions / Psychology:
In the first game of the Urknall: The Big Bang, players learn during play what they have to actually have to pay attention to. Those who know the game already will avoid the typical mistakes of a first match.

Core Elements / Mechanisms:
The core mechanism of the game is the underlying scoring of the heavenly bodies. The number of items on a celestial body decides how the ownership markers should be scored. There is no certainty for the players though - gravitation leads to permanent changes in the composition of celestial bodies.

Strategy & Luck:
The random aspect is certainly the gravity that is controlled by the dice. This will determine whether you can combine or divide celestial bodies.

Look and Feel:
The material is based on the Runners Edition, the second competition of www.spielmaterial.de
