You can take an imaginary trip to a black hole right now!
Play our intergalactic adventures board game and be the first to explore a black hole and live to tell about it!
You will also visit such interesting places as a giant array of radio telescopes in the New Mexico desert and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. Then you will blast into space and visit the Earth-orbiting Japanese VSOP Radio Telescope and Russia's RadioAstron telescope.
You will leave Earth orbit and go on to explore other galaxies, an interstellar gas cloud, a neutron star, and finally, a black hole! You will earn "Antigravity Tokens" along the way, so that you will be able to escape from the black hole's tremendous gravitational force.
This is a game for 2, 3, or 4 players. The game board covers six 8-1/2 x 11-inch pages.
Or, you can print the full-size board (25 x 25 inches) on an over-sized printer.
Cut off the white borders on each page and tape the pieces together. You will also print and cut out Adventure Cards, Antigravity Tokens, and player markers. To make the player markers easy to handle, we suggest you glue them onto buttons, pebbles, bottle caps, corks, or some other small objects. You will also need a single die (one of a pair of dice) or a spinner from another game that has only numbers 1 through 6.
If you have a color printer, print out this color game board.
Here is the full-size game board (25 x 25 inches) in one piece, to print on an over-size printer.
If you have a "black and white" printer, print out this black and white game board. (You may color it if you wish.)
Read the rules and good luck on your adventures!
