In this game zodiac signs are in battle for the most faith of the earthlings! You try to align your sign with your planet and your element in order to purchase crystals in exchange of 'faith'. You can align planets by turning weels on the board via zodiac cards (sort of horoscope you read each turn) and playing tarot cards, which can also gain you faith to buy crystals. The first player to receive 3 crystals wins the game.


This board game is thematically so strong! I really feel the theme throughout the game. Each of the astrological signs has been explained carefully on the beautifully illustrated player mats and has a power which really match up well. And overall the alignment of the signs, planets and elements is such a nice thing to do by turning the rings. It really gives you the feeling of manipulating the stellar system. All in all I really enjoyed this beautiful game, with its lovely unique theme.

Nice addition; the tarot deck can also be used as a tarot reading deck. How cool is that!


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