Adapting and Extending the Moon Adventure Game

The Moon Adventure Game was designed for use in museums with groups of 3–6 players at a time. However, the game can easily adapt for use in other settings and with larger groups by expanding and extending the game experience. You may also want to expand the experience by adding NASA images, videos, audio, and visualizations. Embellish your experience and create a more atmospheric environment by using of NASA’s Spotify playlists for background music, keep lights in your space dim, or add relevant content from other NISE Net Explore Science: Earth & Space activities and NASA resources. Please download a copy of the Game Guide for more resources:
