Pepys Astronaut Card Game - 1960s


Early 60s card game based on the moon race with realistic paintings including Sputnik, Telstar, Mercury and Vostok capsules and rather more fanciful ones of a moon mission.

Players race to lay down the seven stage cards in order, using substitute and reserve cards if necessary, and hindered by illness cards picked up and delay cards passed by the player on the right. Game end comes when a player reaches the moon (stage 7), and victory points come from the number of genuine stage cards played.

Includes the original rules booklet.
