Certain Stars

Additional information

Designer – Brian Garthwaite

Artist – Brian Garthwaite

Certain Stars is a light tile-placement and pattern-matching game for 1 or 2 players. While out camping, the kids want to learn the constellations, but you’ve forgotten your star guide. As the stars begin to twinkle, can you point out just enough bogus yet believable sky shapes to keep them entertained?

Whether a cooperative puzzle or a competitive race, players construct a night sky of the moon and stars above their campsite, matching patterns in the evolving grid to a set of randomly-chosen targets. Shooting stars and drifting clouds can help nudge your sky into just the right configuration. Success hinges upon not only carefully revealing the sky, but also ordering and overlaying the constellations effectively.

Certain Stars is designed to fit within a standard-sized mint tin, as part of the 2017 Mint Tin Design Contest.
