I was wondering why there aren't many reviews or videos relating to this game? Has it reached the US yet?

Delivery of pre-orders stalled due to the printing error with cards, so widespread review access will be limited. Martin Wallace games are very low on most reviewer's lists because (1) they are "boring euro", (2) Martin Wallace isn't "sexy", (3) MW games are too long and too complex for most reviewers/play throughs to cover.

NB I don't agree with any of these assessments, but that's how I read the current media circus.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

That and MW games have deeper game play than is rewarded by many mainstream reviewers now days.

i honestly think the main reason is the very long delay in getting our games...

to me, once the game was "in" (with the few bad cards) they should have been shipped, pnp's posted here on BGG for the bad cards if people wanted to get them, and then the replacement cards dropped in an envelope and mailed (months later)...

the games have sat way too long waiting for something many owners would have been happy to "play around" (while waiting for the corrections)...

It has not reached the U.S. Moreover, the print run was small and limited so it is not going to reach many people's hands.
