    Description

    Available for direct purchase now from Exoplanetgames.com (dead link Dec. 2020) and on Amazon.com direct.

    From 1968 to 1972, millions of people watched in amazement as the US Apollo program took humanity to the Moon for the first time. Since those missions ended, generations have watched replays and movies of the landings, read books by the Astronauts, and wondered what it was like to be on those missions. But aside from some computer simulations over the decades, there has never been a comprehensive way to immerse yourself in an Apollo Lunar Mission.

    Until now.

    Now you can experience the challenge and excitement of flying an Apollo Lunar Mission with APOLLO: The Game of Our First Voyages to the Moon. A collaborative board game for 1-4 players ages 13 and up, APOLLO puts players in the Spacecraft and Mission Control, responsible for critical decisions and maneuvers throughout the spaceflight to the Moon.

    The players become the Apollo mission Commander, the Lunar Module Pilot (LMP), the Command Module Pilot (CMP) and Mission Control Houston. Each position has critical roles to play in the outcome of the mission - but if you don't have 4 people to play the game, don't worry - you can easily combine the roles or even play by yourself!

    Based upon extensive research of public NASA documents, photographs, and mission reports, APOLLO: The Game of Our First Voyages to the Moon begins on the pad at Launch Complex 39A.

    It Is T-minus 15 seconds to liftoff and the players will feel the uncertainty of launching on the most powerful rocket ever made, the Saturn V.... their goal is to fly a mission to the Moon's surface and a successful return to Earth... but like the real Apollo missions, systems may fail, astronauts may fall ill, critical maneuvers must be performed flawlessly... decisions will have to be made to continue the mission or abort to bring the crew home...

    After mastering the basic Lunar Landing Mission, players can fly all of the Historic Apollo Lunar Missions, with more challenging mission goals in order to obtain scientific samples and data.

    Also included are the cancelled Apollo 18-19 missions and a dedicated Apollo 13 "Houston, we have a problem scenario". Or pick your favorite Astronauts of the era and create your own Apollo Mission crew - The "what if" possibilities are endless
