Enter the Creative Writing Challenge for Dawn on Titan!
“With a cinematic title like ‘Dawn on Titan’, our expectations were high! Thankfully, this game lives up to it, feeling like you’re crafting your own space opera as you fight for resources while industrializing the many moons of Saturn. We were on the edge of our seat every turn squeezing attack, defense, and development into our three precious actions.” - Kitty, Long Distance Gamers
"Dawn on Titan is a fast and entertaining 5x board game! It is simple enough for a casual audience to pick up and play, but it's ship movement, simple combat and resource system give a lot of strategy for seasoned gamers." - Friday Knight Games
“Dawn on Titan does something that is fairly challenging – it manages to be fun and engaging for players across multiple experience levels in a way that’s so important for family weight games.“ - Two Moms Game
“Dawn on Titan is a sneaky little firecracker of a game. Appearing unassumingly simple, then exploding with player interaction and layers of strategy, something typically not present in a family weight game. Gameplay ebbs and flows between passively tactical and hilariously confrontational as truces are forged and broken between players all vying for the limited resources. This is the perfect option to introduce new players to the deeper layers of the gaming world, while not inundating them with rules!” - Brooks, Long Distance Gamers
