The year is 1956. Mankind stands at the dawn of a new age, the Space Age, when the flying bombs of yesteryear will become the rocket ships of tomorrow. As the director of a national space program, your country is depending on you for success in this great contest. You may be the first to create an artificial satellite, send a probe to another planet, or even put a man on the moon.

Leaving Earth is a game about planning and about managing risk. With even a single grand journey into outer space, you might claim victory in the game. Consequently, it is your job to plan each journey carefully, finding the cheapest, quickest, and safest ways to reach your objective—but do not spend too long preparing, or another nation might reach its goal before you.

On your turn, you will be conducting research, building spacecraft, and directing journeys into outer space. To conduct research, you buy an advancement that begins with certain flaws, then you test the advancement to find and eliminate those flaws. To build a spacecraft, you purchase components and assemble them into a whole. To travel to outer space, you expend rockets to maneuver from one location to another.

Also include the Mercury mini expansion.

    4/5
    La richesse en missions et technologies différentes compense-t’elle le risque après quelques parties d’avoir en tête la stratégie ultime pour, par exemple, aller sur Mars… Rendant les parties entre joueurs aguerris de simples courses où la prise de risque amène la victoire ? J’ose espérer que non et pense que le nombre de missions et les moyens variés de les réaliser, les surfaces planétaires changeante d’une partie à l’autre associé à la compétition entre joueurs, évitera cet écueil. Mais je ne peux pas être totalement certains de cela.

    Très bon jeu. Très riche. L'ambiance de conquête spatiale avec ses prises de risques, ses échecs ou ses succès in extremis est très bien rendue. L'aspect calcul de poussée peut repousser certains mais il renforce le thème.

    Un jeu d'une exceptionnelle profondeur et très immersif. L'étoffe des héros sur un plateau.

    This game is a must for those of you who are interested in the original space race. Leaving Earth is a simulation of sorts and is not an exact historic replication. There is no Soviet or US side but the technology, the people and to some extent the missions, are historic. The game has a steep learning curve and assembling a rocket launcher can be quite the brain burner. If you are into the space race theme and enjoy medium to heavy calculating games then this is definitely a product for you.

    An incredible game with a very interesting mechanic of risk management and a wonderful setting.

    For me the game succeeds at giving you the feeling of being a true NASA engineer in the sixties. Dealing with all the unknowns of space travel, new technologies, the race for space... it all comes together nicely. There is a lit to manage (including risk) and a lot to calculate. Not everyone well like this but if you're an engineer, like space travel, like to reminisce the sixties, seventies or like a good brain burner which also plays solo, you're in for a treat

    Très intelligent, un jeu calculatoire au scénario aux petits oignons. Un véritable jeu d'auteur.

    Excellent jeu qui vous met a la place d'un chef de projet d'agence spatiale. On planifie les missions, on calcule les propulseurs necessaires, on developpe la technologie, on teste juste ce qu'il faut, et au moment du compte a rebours on croise les doigts a chaque allumage de propulseur. Car dans ce jeu comme dans la realite les dysfonctionnements sont nombreux. Les fusees explosent, les astronautes restent prisonniers en orbite en attente desesperee d'une mission de secours. Les planetes elles-memes sont encore en partie inconnues (le jeu commence en 1956) et certaines peuvent s'averer inexplorables en cours de jeu, ce qui rend des objectifs caduques!

    Bon jeu mais je le déconseille en solo car trop calculatoire. Par contre à plusieurs c'est très sympa. Matériel superbe.
