Gameplay

8 different games in the new WELCOME TO THE MOON..?!?

Like the regular Welcome To.. (your perfect home), Welcome to the Moon is a flip and write game, where you can choose between 8 different adventures to play. 

Throughout these adventures the game tells the story of us people boarding a rocket, escaping to the moon, settle there, mine there and so on.

Each adventure comes with a new (laminated!) sheet and game mode. Which means the game consists of multiple games! 

Besides the regular way to play these adventures separately, the game also comes with a campaign book, in which there are a lot of stories to read and choices to make throughout the games.

Thoughts

When I first heard about this last version of Welcome To.. I got Very excited. Seeing the game, and having played it I'm getting even more excited! 

So far I have played the first two adventures and I'm starting with the campaign mode soon. 

I'm a huge fan of both other Welcome to games, with the New Las Vegas version being a bit on the strategic side. This version is quite different, the difficulty rises throughout the adventures.

This game rises beyond the moon for me. Each separate adventure appeals to me and I can (like with the regular Welcome To..) keep on playing them.

Highly appreciate this game, therefore I rate it with a....

9/10

A copy of this game was provided to me by Blue Cocker Games for the purpose of writing this review. My opinion however remains my own.
