Several millennia ago, the tiny planet Solenia lost its day-and-night
cycle: Its northern hemisphere is forever plunged into darkness, and its
southern hemisphere is eternally bathed in sunlight. Your mission is to
carry on your ancestors' honorable task of traveling the world to
deliver essential goods to the inhabitants of both hemispheres. While
the Day people want you to deliver the rarest gems and stones, the Night
people sorely need wood and wheat to survive. Be efficient and outpace
your opponents to collect the most gold stars by the end of the game!
A game of Solenia plays out over 16 rounds, and in each round, each
player plays one card from their hand onto an empty space of the 5x5
game board. You can play the card on either:
A floating production island, to gain as many resources as the value of
the card you played of the type corresponding to this space
A floating city, to fulfill a delivery tile by delivering the resources
depicted on it.
You must play your card adjacent to the airship in the center of the
playing area or adjacent to another card of yours already played. When
someone plays a 0 card, the airship advances one space, then at the end
of your turn, you remove the back edge of the board, give players
resources based on the cards they have on this strip of the playing
area, flip the strip over (turning night to day or dawn to dusk or vice
versa), and place it on the other side of the game board.
The game ends when each player has played all 16 of their cards. The
player with the most gold stars wins!
