Lift Off (Z-Man Games)Next year Z-Man Games will be bringing the Hans im Glück board game Lift Off to English speaking (or maybe I should type English reading) gamers in North America. The title pits players against each other as leaders of rival space agencies with competing aims to expand and exploit the stars. Lift Off is for two to four players, ages 12+, plays in around 60-90 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $59.99 when it arrives in Spring 2019.

From Z-Man:

Humanity yearns for the stars and the race to explore is in full swing! With everyone wanting to claim their spot in history and start the golden age of space exploration, you must make strategic choices to outwit your opponents. Compete against other agencies to hire the best specialists, expand your research, upgrade your rocket, and complete missions in this retro resource management game.

The unexplored cosmos awaits you in Lift Off. Build your space agency and compete to claim the most glorious milestones of space travel. New research has refined techniques to Lift Off Components (Z-Man Games)send astronauts into space. Specialists in the field will give your agency the edge. Bring a lead researcher or astronaut commander on board and prepare for launch.

With the skills and technology to reach space finally within humanity’s grasp, there are many different possibilities to explore. Send up the first satellites, mine minerals from asteroids, build an orbital trading post, or land on a new planet. Select your missions carefully. A more complex mission will have a bigger payoff for your agency but will require more work.

To prepare for your missions you’ll need to develop technologies: life support, oxygen, energy, and fuel.

An upgraded rocket will be better suited to tackle the more ambitious missions. Plan ahead and your agency will win the race to the stars!
