Reminiscent of childhood games, while maintaining a grown-up identity uniquely its own, Moonshot: Lunar Solace incorporates a space theme, unique binary dice mechanic, light strategic decision making, and the gotcha element to provide consistent levels of fun, anticipation, and excitement. The game may be equally enjoyed by casual gamers and strategists alike, and by youth as well as adults. We have found it to be great fun for families

Our Goal

We are attempting to have Moonshot: Lunar Solace mass-manufactured in order to maximize production quality! We have invested our time and money in development, game design and graphic design to make the game look and play its best! 

We are asking you to join us today by pledging to support this campaign. Backers who pledge as little as $35 will receive a copy of the finished game as their reward along with all of the stretch goals that we unlock below! 

 All Moonshot: Lunar Solace backers will receive:   

  • 17 x 17 game board 
  • 16 wooden jump ship tokens 
  • 4 custom D12 "Power Dice"
  • 56 card deck of Solace Cards
  • 4 Quick Reference Cards 
  • 2 moveable Wormhole tiles
  • 1 Jupiter cloaking tile
  • Full-color instructions
  • 2 piece full-color box
  • All Unlocked Stretch Goals!

   The year is 2142. Earth was heavily damaged in the great civil war of the late 21st century, littering our solar system with debris and leaving the divided people of Earth without a home!

     In anticipation of the planet’s imminent destruction, five private organizations pooled their resources and funded a program which designed and built settlements on and orbiting the moon… Every year, on the anniversary of the settlement’s completion, each of the remaining factions sends a fleet of specially engineered jump ships, piloted by their most able-bodied and well respected personnel, to the annual Moonshot Race. The victorious faction earns the right to govern the planet until the next competition while the other competitors receive only lunar solace.

     Designed by brothers David and Micah Abelson, Moonshot places 2-4 players in a race around the solar system with the goal of returning their squadron to the moon first. This dice-driven, casual board game sets players at odds with one another as they jockey for position, often leaving opposing squadrons heading back to the starting line to lick their wounds and begin again! Please visit this short video for more specifics.

Risks and challenges

Moonshot: Lunar Solace is the first project for Fisher Heaton Games, however each of our team members have previous experience spanning the areas of design, development, logistics, and custom printing.

We feel confident in our ability to provide a top quality product, however we know that with every first, there are new obstacles to overcome. In addition to being creators, we are also participants, having backed several dozen games with varied levels of success.

Our goal is to maintain transparency with our backers. We feel as though you all are becoming a part of our support team and we wish to treat you as such. Should an unexpected obstacle arise, look for us to reach out to our team of backers for advice before we make any decisions that might affect your experience either with Moonshot: Lunar Solace or with Fisher Heaton Games.

Apart from a few final touches, the design process is complete, and arrangements with our manufacturer are awaiting funding and proof approval.

We are a small team, but we understand the immense benefit and potential challenge of outsourcing, and we know how important it is that you receive the experience for which you paid. Your satisfaction is our priority. Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts!
