Imagine yourself 5 billion years ago out in the void, in the vast dark forever of space. A cosmic dance is unfolding before your very eyes. Indescribably massive clouds of gas and matter swirl and gather around a new protostar. Asteroids, planets and moons are born.

But here’s the thing.

You and your fellow players are not just witnessing these events. You are SHAPING THEM as they happen! This small solar system is your solar system and the choices you make playing Planetarium will shape this small corner of the universe. Will the system support life or be filled with gas giants or barren radioactive moons? Cosmic forces are your playthings. It’s up to you to decide 

Listen in to discover more about the game and learn why it has earned the Spiel of Approval Award!

Complete Show Notes continue after the break.
