Requires four standard six-sided dice, and a player sheet.
This game can also easily be played multiplayer or remotely by sharing the dice results (multiplayer solitaire).
The last remnants of humanity reside on Cathedral, a space-faring city, on its centuries-long mission to find a new home. Cathedral relies on spacecraft designed for deep space scavenging, to gather vital resources. These resources are not only for survival, but also to finish the construction of Cathedral, started long ago by generations past. Pilots who don’t being in enough, however, are stripped of their craft and consigned to the dangers of construction duty. Can you bring in enough to see humanity to a brighter tomorrow, and also to stay in the relative comfort of deep space?
In Dust and Void, players take on the role of these pilots. Players will explore the depths of space, look for resources, avoid dangers, and balance work, well-being and worship to make a name for themselves and build a legacy.
Each turn, players will roll the dice and assign them to various actions. Each of these furthers your goal in different ways, from scanning deep space to find resources and avoid dangers, to upgrading your craft to meet the challenges at hand. The game ends once your shift has ended, after twelve turns, it is time to return.
Upon return, will you be assigned another duty, or be the talk of all the pilots?
If you like a good solo puzzle with a variety of strategies and a lot of replayability, then Dust and Void is the game for you!
