“1, 2, 3… Ditch it!”
Prepare for this rallying call to launch you and a few other environmental do-gooders on a fun and frantic mission at warp speed! Join the race to declutter your planet by reporting to the tabletop with Astro Trash, a new original, non-stop dice-rolling game by The OP!
Thanks to a sanitation spacecraft gone haywire, a collection of debris has been released into the vast universe, covering once inhabitable worlds with disruptive litter! Cleaning up all the Astro Trash calls for one quick-acting champion to literally take the matter into his or her own hands.
Free-floating, colorful pieces of trash must be displaced from your player mat to either be incinerated by the Sun, or disposed of by another player. Mind only what’s directly in front of you, and the results of three dice: one with directions, another with color/shapes, and the third with a number.
Rapidly roll the dice and follow the directives to clear your planet of the pieces being flung at you by neighbors to your left and right, who have their own sets of dice! Alert the table that you’ve done your planetorial duty by declaring “Clean!” the second you’ve out-trashed your opponents, then collect a Trash Trophy to flaunt your fastidiousness. The first player with three Trash Trophies wins the game!
Astro Trash relies on the quick wits and honest actions of all players working simultaneously to be the first one to yell “Clean!” Leverage the results of the direction die, which shows L (left), R (right), the Sun, and ?(your call) to determine who needs to be bogged down with space junk! The color-coded die corresponds with which kind of trash you can dispose of, which you must abide by for the full challenge. The third die shows a 1, 2, or 3 to make it a real “numbers game” as that will mark the quantity of trash pieces you’re allowed to hand off.
Leave it to luck for the needed dice in order to either lob your trash into the Sun (an immediate decision, no neighbors involved) or implement a strategy to keep one person from cleaning up. Astro Trash is for up to five players, ages 6 and up, and includes 15 dice, 50 pieces of Trash, 5 Planet player mats, and 11 Trash Trophies of silly shapes and sizes for cosmic de-clutterers to choose from.
