Rachael chose Stellium from Ankama Boardgames as her July Game of the Month.

“Stellium is a beautiful space-themed abstract strategy game. I think marbles were the perfect way to represent different celestial bodies and how they affect the universe around them!

Blindly searching for the perfect marble, based only on touch, was an interesting mechanic (that I wasn’t always successful with). Even though it wasn’t ideal when I didn’t draw the one I was hoping for, it was still a fun challenge to figure out how best to use it to alter the patterns on the board, if not to my advantage, to another player’s disadvantage.”

We still have a few copies of Stellium in stock if you’d like to check it out!
