Solar Orrery Expansion

A card game with excellent images of the celestial bodies in our solar system.

This is an expansion deck for the Solar Orrery game. This adds 4 new systems (colors) and can be played separately or added to the original deck so more people can play.

There are 13 cards in each system: Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Moon (Luna), Mars, Ceres, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Charon. The game is for 2 to 4 players and is similar to gin-rummy in play. You draw cards to build a hand with the goal being to collect each planet and dwarf planet and avoid having moons or suns in your hand at the end of the round. Each card has a celestial body on it with a picture from NASA, the planetary symbol and a few statistics about that celestial body.
