Neil stepped on a rock 239,000 miles from Earth. Big deal. I stepped on an Exoplanet circling Ursae Majoris 18 months earlier. It's a one-way trip - so there ain't any going home. No ticker tape parade for me, but that's ok. I'm here for my country.
Godspeed is a mid-weight worker placement game of extra-terrestrial colonization where players play as scientists from one of 5 nations: the USA, Japan, Soviet Union, the European Nations, or India.
Points -- Prestige is gained on 4 tracks (Defense, Exploration, Commerce, and Infrastructure) and your position on these tracks gains you points at the end of the game. You may also gain points by achieving Civilization Milestones (only 1 Nation may claim each Milestone), completing Lunar Season scoring cards (any number of Nations may complete these), building ancient XenoRelics, completing special objective cards, and for left over resources.
The Nation with the most victory points wins.
