You forgot an option "I don't have one / don't care"

No GfW/DLR, sniff.

To be honest, I don't really care that much, but I like the options.

Because BGG is quite US-centric, we can expect that most people will naturally vote for NASA.

There is a duck in every game. You may not see it, but it's there.

Yeah, I'm going to fit the stereotype. We went to the moon baby. Unfortunately we suck at space travel when we have no competition. Maybe China will help make NASA great again.

I usually play the Soviets because to win the game you have to take some significant risks. OK, there's no Marshal Nedelin card, but…

Yeah, but you can only start playing ESA in 1975.

Wernher von Braun is tacitly in the game leading NASA from 1960 and the daddy of the Saturn Vs that are so critical to big missions, so Germany's role in space exploration is quite important within the narrative of the game, at least in my view.

On a separate note, I suppose China is the one agency that prefer to keep out of the game, if you go strictly by the rules. I think China's greater flexibility to send people on suicide missions is too big of an advantage.

When I play solitaire I think of myself representing a space agency for a fictional tiny but rich country somewhere. Nonetheless my bias shows in that I bring out the NASA cards.

Yeah, well, it still would have been nice, but as I said, I don't take things too seriously here.

I don't want to open the gates to RSP territory, but are you referring to anything specific ? Just curious.

I checked these lists and cannot make a connection to your statement.

He may be confusing this game with High Frontier, in which the Chinese can perform actions that would kill their crew while other nations can't.

The agencies chosen were the first 5 to demonstrate orbital capacity. The rule book has a nice abridged history of space exploration as well as many design notes about how that connects with game related choices.

After China (1970) the book lists as the year reaching orbital capacity, the UK (1971), The European Space Agency (1979), India (1980), Israel (1988), and two private organizations Orbital Science Corp. (1990) and Space X. (2008)

edit: Oops, didn't read the next page. Add Iran and North Korea to the list.

Yeah, he is confused. The Agencies are different in High Frontier, in Leaving Earth it makes no difference, they are all the same.

I don't understand the question Joe

It's like asking which color pieces you like to use -- there's no mechanical difference, just an aesthetic one.

Well, once again my Neanderthal roots are exposed, I don't care which Agency I'm playing

Well, at least this decision is easy then.
