Product Description

Product Description

Race Through Space, A Mission to the Moon! is the latest introduction to Ravensburger's Imagine - Play - Discover series. Designed for children ages 6+, the game features a colorful game board that resembles a fantastical space galaxy - complete with shooting stars, asteroid fields, rocket ships, space stations and more. The game is for four players, who all try to land their three rockets on the moon and earn the most points for each landing.

A mission to the Moon on a shifting galaxy board.

Basic strategy-learning game for young children lets imaginations soar!
Engaging space-themed design and high-quality content.

Colorful space-themed game with shifting galaxy playing board.
Collect Galaxy Cards and Avoid Black Holes
In this cosmic game of intergalactic exploration, players assume the role of space travelers flying their rockets through the Milky Way on their way to the Moon. Dangers lurk everywhere with asteroid fields and black holes in the way that can steer players off course and delay or doom their arrival on the moon. Players take turns rolling the die to launch their rockets and aim towards the moon collecting galaxy cards. The constant movement of the galaxies causes the universe to shift, challenging their efforts to stay the course and avoid falling into black holes that swallow their rocket and stop them from collecting enough points to win the game.

Offers Opportunity to Practice Basic Learning Skills
A strategy game for young children, Race Through Space gives a little extra support to the youngest player in the game, who always gets to go first and lead the way. Since movement - from launch pad to moon landing - is played with a die that leads players in two directions, players practice basic counting and direction skills, develop gameplay strategies as they face options for their actions, and polish their patience and turn-taking skills. It also produces just one winner per game, so kids will gain an understanding of fair play, the glory of winning and the disappointment of defeat.

Colorful Design and Intriguing Play
This shifting board game provides an eye-catching and colorful design that showcases the wonder of space exploration for young gamers. Race Through Space gives children strategic options to choose from while teaching them to focus, helping them understand about cause and effect as well as the excitement of the unknown.

What's In The Box?
10 galaxy cards, 12 rockets, 1 die, 1 moon card, and 1 set of instructions.

A strategy game for young children with colorful space design.

Be the first to fly your rocket to the Moon. But watch out! Asteroid fields and black holes may hurtle you backwards through space!

From the Manufacturer

A mission to the moon. On this constantly moving galaxy board, fly your Rocket many light years through the Milky Way. Dangers lurk everywhere with Asteroid Fields and Black Holes. Race to the Space Stations to collect the most points and win.

Overall, it is a clean and enjoyable game for the kids!
Aletheia
The problem I had with it is that there is a black hole space on the board where if you land on it the pieces at the bottom of the board are lost to the black hole.
Edward Walker
The game has a few rules to learn but once you get the hang of it, it was quite fun.

"Rcae through Space" is a board game for kids, but rather than simply moving your playing pieces based on the number on your dice roll, there are a few other events that take place. This makes the game more interesting and gives the kids some strategies to think about. However, some of these strategies/events are not good for small kids (The game's recommended age is 6+).

The board consists of 10 galaxy pieces and one moon piece (target). Each player has 3 rockets and you start on the 4th galaxy piece (6 board pieces away from the moon) and move towards the moon based on your dice roll. There is an asteroid belt to cross through (You wait a turn - that's all). The dice has the numbers 1 - 5 and an arrow symbol. If you roll a number, you move one of your rockets that many spaces and with the arrow symbol, you can either move your rocket forward to join your other rocket closest to the moon or move your opponents rocket backwards to the farthest rocket. Similarly, at the end of each round (each player has rolled the dice once), you move the piece farthest from the moon and move it closest to the moon - all rocket pieces on the "new" farthest piece go out of the game. So these two new strategies make the game interesting - however, when my 9 yr old and his friends (ages: 6-9) played the game, moving the pieces around at the end of each round was a mess - rockets were disloadged from the game boards and they had to move things around the table etc. similarly, 6 yr olds couldn't take losing their rockets off the board completely and had trouble with their pieces being moved backwards by someone else.

In my opinion, the game could be improved with the following changes.

This game is a lot of fun. It really isn't that confusing to figure out (as I have noticed some reviewers have said). The object is to try and get all your rockets to the moon, and to NOT fall into the black hole. After each round (after each player takes a turn), the board piece at the end is removed and placed at the top, by the moon. The board is moving throughout the whole game, and if your rockets don't move quick enough, they will fall off the board into the black hole and be out for the rest of the game!

This game is fun and imaginative with cute, colorful space pictures on each board piece. It is easy to play (hard floor or a tabletop is much easier than carpet to play on, since you will be sliding the board after each round), includes some chance (rolling the die) and some strategy. We really enjoyed this fun and original game. Will be a family favorite!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We played RACE THROUGH SPACE and all of us liked it a lot. We really learned some strategy too. It is a lot of fun and we played it over and over. Our 6-year-old needed an extra 'gimme' turn to save his rockets the first time around.

By now, we've played a lot of times and we've ALL learned that you sometimes sacrifice a rocket (or three) during the game. We've suffered losses, but have learned to support (and occasionally tease) eachother's gameplay. There have been no tears, just laughs with Race Through Space.

I'm glad we got the game and my son loves it. He also sometimes just pulls out the board and rockets to play with--not as a game, but a toy.

This is a quick, fun board game that does require that players know and understand the rules before playing. While the rules are not complicated, they are not intuitive and the game isn't much fun unless it's played the way it was designed to be played.

The game board consists of several boards that shift as the game is played. This makes the game much more challenging as the pieces move up the board toward the finish. It is possible for none of the players to win if they all fall into the "black hole." The game board is made of sturdy cardboard with a colorful game surface. The playing pieces consist of colored plastic rockets and a set of two dice. The dice are specific to the game. The youngest player goes first and is in charge of shifting the game board at the start of each turn.

I first handed this game to a couple middle-school children and asked them to play it. They didn't bother to read the directions and played the game in about 3 minutes. They said it wasn't much fun. I then read the directions, explained the directions to them, and challenged them to play again. They were clearly enjoying this "new" version and, when finished with the first game, immediately played a second. Each round took less than 10 minutes which was well within their attention spans. It would be a good game for kids to play while waiting for dinner or in a classroom where there is limited time between lessons or activities.

This game is meant for children 7 & up. The plastic game pieces could pose a choking hazard for younger children. Also, the game surface is not waterproof so seating glasses and pop cans should be kept away from the game.

The game has a few rules to learn but once you get the hang of it, it was quite fun. Basically you need to get your ships to the end of the puzzle to get points, the first ship to reach gets the most points and each ship after gets 1 less. As roll your die and move your ships you can focus on 1 ship or all 3 ships. The board constantly shifts as the pieces slowly rotate, if you are caught at the bottom your ship is out of play and you cannot get any points for it.

I like this game because it allows different strategies of managing your ships, removing your opponent ships, and the order your ships reach the end.
