Ganymede puts players in control of corporations responsible for providing deep space colonization ships with their most critical resource: the settlers bound for distant worlds. By using their “shuttle” cards, players transport settlers from the Earth to the Jupiter moon of Ganymede, then use them to prepare their ships for departure. Once a ship is complete, it takes off, recycling the settlers back to the supply and awarding victory points. When a player completes their fourth ship, the game ends and the player with the most points wins, after penalties are applied for ships that did not launch.
Lucky Duck will release Ganymede between January’s Chronicles of Crime expansion, Noir (see “‘Chronicles of Crime’ Goes ‘Noir’”), and March’s Jetpack Joyride (see “Take to the Skies With Arcade Precision in ‘Jetpack Joyride’”).
