Lux Aeterna is aimed at players of age 10 or older and will have a duration of about 15 minutes per game. In this board game, players draw and play cards from a main deck, one turn after another, trying to keep the spaceship intact and not fall into the black hole. Cards have multiple functions and can serve to perform an action or move towards the black hole, but also damage a system. Players must decide where to allocate the card based on these functions each turn, optimizing its use to achieve final salvation.
