Gravity Superstar

Gravity Superstar product reviews

At the edge of known space, the most famous adventurers converge on a strange little planet that is uniquely capable of attracting precious stardust with its befuddling gravity.

These adventurers are there to collect as much of this rare resource as they can, while their rivals constantly try to steal it. You are one of these superstars on a quest for wealth, and you must overcome the gravitational challenges set before you!

What is really original about Gravity Superstar is the manner in which the players' pawns move: Each turn, they move one or two spaces, then they are affected by gravity, which makes them fall until they are stopped by a platform. This effect is made possible by the fact that the pawns are used lying down on the board. Thus, they move up (above their head), down (below their feet), left, or right. During its movement, a pawn can collect stars (to score points at the end of the game) or replay tokens (to take a second consecutive turn), and eject opponents' pawns from the board.

Gravity Superstar is a game that I picked up on a whim, on special, and has proven itself to be a fun enough little game. The board is made up of tiles, depending on the number of players will depend on how many you place down. You then have these cute little 3D star tokens, in different colours, which you then place as indicated by the faint illustrations on the board tiles, and you then place each players token on one of the doors on the map, aligning it with the image of the door (and thus you all start facing a different direction). Each player then gets a set of five cards, four of them each create a different movement for your token, with the fifth acting as a wild card.

The aim is nice and easy, use your cards to maneuver your token so that gravity will take over and it will fall through some of the stars, which you then get to collect. There are also replay tokens which, when used, allow you to play a card that you've already used, that you can collect like you do that stars. There's the added strategy, that if you fall 'through' another player, you send them flying off the board and their next turn they must start at a door, as indicated by the door token. What I like, about this game, is that it is really easy to pick up, each card is easy to understand what its roll is and there is the opportunity for some strategy. Also, you play until there is a set number of stars left on the board, so depending on how you play your cards, it could be a very quick game.
