GODSPEED PHOTO GALLERY
The Space Race was a lie.
Look, it’s not that the moon landing was faked. It happened. Neil hates the conspiracy theories. The lie is that we ever wanted to go to the moon. We needed a spectacle to show the people. To justify the massive budgets. The agencies.
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.
See, the Russians beat us here by a few months. Japanese showed up a few weeks after us. We’ll colonize this planet for America. Because there isn’t a choice….
Godspeed is an exoplanet colonization game where various nations exploit the natural resources of the newly found planet Minos in the shadow of the Cold War. The player who best establishes their foothold on the new planet will win the game.
8 out of 10
Godspeed is a great worker placement game that blends in a bidding/auction unlike anything else that came before it. You do not just need to worry about one placement area to fight over in a round but three. Your crew has different skills and having to use them correctly adds so much dimensionality and freshness to an already exciting genre.
GODSPEED HOW TO PLAY
You are heading to a new planet as the representative for the future of humanity for your country. Over various phases, your crew will need to execute objectives and build infrastructure to gain influence and points to propel you to victory. This is all done via a worker placement base tied to a unique blind bidding mechanic.
