Look, it’s not that the moon landing was faked. It happened. Neil hates the conspiracy theories. The lie is that we ever wanted to go to the moon. We needed a spectacle to show the people. To justify the massive budgets. The agencies.
Neil stepped on a rock 239,000 miles from Earth. Big deal. I stepped on an Exoplanet circling Ursae Majoris 18 months earlier. It’s a one-way trip—so there ain’t any going home. No ticker-tape parade for me, but that’s okay. I’m here for my country.
Godspeed is a unique worker-placement game with a few wrinkles that make it really something special. Each Team Member (worker) for a given Nation has two unique qualities: a specialty and an Influence Value. These are both important and will come into play throughout the course of the game. The most important bit of gameplay: Once you have assigned a Team Member to a task, they cannot be used for anything else until the next round!
