“Space! For millennia, humans have marveled at the cosmos. Modern astronomy gives us valuable insight about what’s happening in the universe, but there is still a sense of wonder to be had in looking up at the expanse above us.”
Renegade Games has announced Stellar, a 2 player card game designed by masters Ben Pinchback and Matt Riddle (co-designers of Fleet, Piepmatz) about telescopes and stargazing. In Stellar, players calibrate their telescopes to observe a huge variety of celestial bodies, including black holes, planets, asteroids, and even satellites. Cards are played to the telescope and notebook, and after 11 rounds a stunning tableau of the night sky will be created. The stargazer with the most points is then declared victorious. Stellar comes with 24 telescope cards, 60 celestial object cards, scorepad, reference cards and rules.
“The corpses of pixies, goblins, unicorns, cyclops, and dragons have begun to pile up, so you’ve got your work cut out for you… Keep the place organized, as you bury corpses in different areas of the graveyard, or it’s your own grave you’ll be digging!”
Also coming from Renegade Games is the adorably dark card game Gloomy Graves by designer Jeffrey D. Allers (Citrus). In this game, 2-4 players take on the role of fantasy gravediggers, and the bodies are piling up. Pixies are one thing, but the deceased dragons and cyclops can be tricky to work with. Players must manage both their private crypt and the communal graveyard, each with its own rules. Gloomy Graves comes with 90 corpse cards to bury, along with 20 score cards, player aids and rulebook.
