Welcome to the future! Prepare to become part of the exciting quest to reach Mars by the year 2020. Along the way, experience the science and the logistics of space travel. You’ll race along the orbital game board, encounter challenges and malfunctions (remedied by answering fascinating questions about space travel), and, finally, land on Mars itself (which is continually orbiting throughout the game, just like in space). All you need is a sense of wonder and a spirit of adventure.
So choose your spacecraft, join the crew and head out on a 50-million mile race. The real feature of this game is that players can set off on their mission to Mars at any level of skill by choosing to answer hard question, mid-level questions or no questions at all.
This is truly a game for all ages and the whole family. Kids love the “cool” spaceship playing pieces and the chance to become a crew member. Messages from Mission Control add excitement to the play.
