California: 1849. Where the mayors of stupidly rich Gold Rush towns can squander the resources
of their citizens on pretty much whatever they want.
This month, it's a race to the Moon. Will it work? Probably not. The real goal is to earn enough
votes to become governor. But it seems the best way to impress your constituents is by doing
something grotesquely stupid and dangerous, like blasting them into space. It's one false step for
Mankind, one giant leap for you.
One False Step for Mankind is a board game about Gold Rush towns with vast resources and
only one thing to spend them on: shooting a rocket to the Moon. This is a complex game, taking
upwards of three hours to play, but we thoroughly enjoy it and we think you will too. It's also the
first Cheapass boxed game to contain full-color cards and boards!
In One False Step, you take the role of a city mayor, controlling one or more towns on a random
Old West board. You must manage your gold mines, farms, and cities, trying to earn political
influence by building and firing off Moon rockets. Successful Moon shots earn you points, and the
first player to earn 30 points wins the game.
