Circadians: First Light Second Edition

(1 review) Write a Review

We were light years from our home, galaxies away, when we first discovered this ancient celestial body. A planet filled with intriguing intelligent lifeforms, not too unlike our own.  Some built kingdoms below the surface of the green seas, while others controlled the desert-filled plains and cliffs.

Among them we found scientists, inventors, farmers, traders, and fighters.  While our presence has been unsettling for some, we have had very few incidents with the locals.  Still, we Circadians, Earth’s famed explorers, must do what we can to ensure peace.  We must respect this world and its hosts.  The heads of Moontide passed down orders from above.  We are to open negotiations with the three clans, in hopes of gaining their favor, along with our own security while on the planet.  We must also collect organic samples for the depository on Moontide. 

This is new ground for all of us.  But we must be brave and resourceful.  The future of the Circadians depends on it.

    Great game with a ton of choices!

    There is a lot to unpack with First Light ! The way you choose where your dice go and then bite your nails hoping your opponents don’t steal your locations. It’s adapting when they do and making the best of every turn. Wonderful gameplay and replay ability! It can’t get a little tricky when you are planning your turn out and remembering where each of your dice go, but this is not the average turn so very minor setback. Overall great game.
