Celestia is a revamped version of the popular and award-winning Cloud 9 game. Designed for two to six players, eight years old and over, Celestia is a rich, story-centric card game that’s easy to learn and quick to play.
Featuring beautifully illustrated cards, pawns, dice and a unique plane — it’s actually a mini bathtub with propeller — Celestia combines strategy, adventure, and good old-fashioned treasure hunting. Celestia challenges players to journey to the cities of a mysterious country, Celestia, collecting fantastical treasures along the way.
Each player receives six (or eight) cards and places his pawn in the aircraft. One player is chosen to be the captain of the trip. He rolls the dice to determine which daunting obstacles the group will have to face and how and when to play the appropriate cards that will allow them to continue the journey and achieve success.
However, before the captain plays the appropriate cards, each player must bet on that success and decide whether to bail or stay with the plane. The player who collects the most treasure (worth 50 points) wins. No rounds will play the same.
