Beginning in 1996, with the cooperation of NASA, game designer Van Overbay conducted two years of exhaustive research and development. The result yielding the gaming, science and educational market a fascinating new board game called MOONSHOT The Game™.  

Overbay worked with the NASA Media Resource Center to develop a game which required no previous knowledge of the space program and highlighted the United States’ early years of space exploration. Overbay states, “Without exaggeration, I would say we looked through at least 20,000 NASA photos to find the 100+ photos needed for the game. The research we performed while creating this game only served to renew our respect for the men and women who put their lives on the line in our nation’s conquest of space. We each owe them a tremendous debt of thanks.”  

MOONSHOT received numerous awards including an American Advertising Federation ADDY Award for package design, and it was a “GAMES 100” and “Best New Game” winner in GAMES Magazine.

Originally from Kingsport, Tennessee, Overbay is a graduate of The Atlanta College of Art with a BFA in Communication Design. He also studied art and design at New York’s Pratt Institute and The University of Tennessee at Knoxville. With over 25 years experience in advertising and design, Overbay has headed design departments for major firms in Atlanta, Chattanooga, Knoxville and Ft. Collins, Colorado where he produced work for clients such as Burger King, Coca-Cola, and General Motors.

Using only top-quality components, top designers, and interesting topics, we aim to give you games that follow our 3-E Principal.  

1. Entertaining  

2. Engaging  

3. Educational  

Entertaining in that you will want to play them again and again. Engaging in that you will have to think and exercise your brain during play. Educational in that the games will give you insight into the topic you are playing.

Risks and challenges

As a companion company of Worthington Games we have experience with publishing over 60 games. We know the biggest challenge is meeting print production estimates of arrival. Even the best laid plans can go awry, but the key is communication and following through on delivery promises. We've built extra time into this campaign in the hopes that we can deliver earlier on this project than listed. All components are complete.
