I've rethemed this game as Planets!

The new theme of the game is that you are a mogul collecting mining rights to planets in the solar system. As such you try (for the sake of economies of scale) to trade your existing rights for other sets of rights aiming to gain a monopoly on one or more planets.



You can find the cards and files (ie nandeck script & art) to make the game yourself here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/filepage/41523

Alternatively you can print the game via artscow, I've shared the albums here:
Album 1: http://www.artscow.com/ShareAlbum.aspx?Key=knhx76y4
Album 2: http://www.artscow.com/ShareAlbum.aspx?Key=i3pr40q0

(if you are saying Artscow what? then see here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/395699)

The idea came for the retheme because while I love the game the theme is pasted on and I wanted something both more thematic and educational. Knowing I needed 9 different types of cards and coming from the era I do I immediately thought Planets. But then I realised there are only 8 given that Pluto has been dropped. Still disaster was opportunity and I decided to make Pluto the fake bid card:


The artwork is mainly sourced from Nasa and is mostly (Pluto excluded) actual pictures of the planets as opposed to artistic renditions.

In any case I hope you enjoy this new version of a classic game

Cheers
David

As you slide down The Bannister Of Life, let's hope the splinters are facing the right direction

Let me add a further thanks. I've also ordered it from Artscow... so after the four to five weeks it'll take to show up, I'll let you know how the cards are!

Pluto will always be a planet to me though...
