The Tabletop Spotlight is on Celestia!
Our Friends at Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy brought over a new game for all of you folks on the adventuring side. If you like Airships and exploration then Celestia is for you:
Celesita at it’s core is a “press-your-luck” style game. In it, players take turns as the captain of an airship who’s goal is to get to the farthest settlement out. At each stop the captain and crew will face a challenge. The crew can abandon ship and collect the treasure while the captain must try to overcome the challenge base on their cards in hand. If you think the captain has the challenge covered you can stay aboard and travel to the next location. But if the captain fails the ship crashes and everyone on the board travels back to the beginning.
It’s a really simple game to grasp. Once you get a round or two under your belt it’s pretty easy to figure out. Plus, because of the random nature of the challenges and the cards it keeps things interesting. The goal is to collect the most treasure so you’re looking to get out as far as possible. However, safety is not guaranteed and losing a whole cycle worth of travel could cost you the game. It’s fun way to test your tolerance for risk vs reward!
Overall, Celestia is a great game for families and kids. It’s easy, quick and engaging – so parents, don’t worry, you won’t get bored playing this one! On top of that the art is really nice and the quality of the components is also great. I’m putting this one on my gift idea list for my friends with kids for sure.
Celestia is available online and at local retailers – so go check it out! Check out the rules online HERE.
You get aboard an aircraft with an adventurers team to perform many trips through the cities of Celestia and recover their wonderful treasures. Your journey will not be safe, but you will attempt to be the most rich adventurer by collecting the most precious treasures!
