You are constellations dueling over elements in the galaxy in order to build your own stars!
In this dice-rolling battle game for ages 8+, what will be your strategy – capturing, stealing, or performing fusion/fission?
Goal: Capture element cards and lock them into your star in order from 1-10. First player to 10 wins!
To achieve this, you have multiple options: draft cards from the "galaxy," battle other players with dice in order to steal elements in their nebula, or perform fusion/fission with the cards in your own nebula to transform them into new elements.
Starsmith contains many unique elements, including a hybrid game mechanic of dice-rolling and card drafting. In addition to role-playing as various female and male constellation characters, embedded within the game are concepts of chemistry that allows players to learn without realizing it.
