Space. It's much cuter than we thought. A family game exploring space with cute, fluffy animals.
In true ION spirit, the game mechanics are inspired by the scientific world and contain data from real experiments conducted in space. In addition, the furry characters embody actual animals that have journeyed into space. On the cover of the box, you can see Félicette, who was launched on October 18, 1963 as part of the French space program!
How to play
Your challenge: keep the great secret secret, which is to not let the humans realize that the Petsonauts are actually in charge of it all. While this charade is going on you’re trying to reach your own secret mission of finding alien supplies to smuggle back to the ship, trading your finds with fellow animals, competing to reach your goals before anyone else in the fluffy crew, and not getting caught by those pesky hoomans, of course.
In Fluffy Frontier you play as one of the space agencies, namely those that land on Halley's Comet during its next close encounter with Earth, in 2061. You have collaboratively travelled to the comet in a spaceship that is now parked in close orbit above it. You carefully plan your turns and perform certain experiments from this station, somewhat in advance so the humans don’t understand that you are doing it.
Each player’s space agency competes with the other space agencies over the discoveries found on the comet in a race to complete the most experiments. You need to fly down to the surface, collect samples, bring them back up and make experiments. And you need to act fast! The comet heats up as it comes closer to the sun and increasingly releases gas into space until it gets impossible to operate on the surface. You have 5 weeks, make the best of it.
