Here I am, nestled in the cradle of my home, surrounded by the hum of the universe itself. Before me lies the pièce de résistance – the grand astrological playground known as Star Counters. A board fit for the gods, adorned with symbols and signs of the the heavens above. And there I sit, wine in one hand, snack in the other, ready to decipher the astrological enigmas that await.
The zodiac game, called Star Counters, comes with two boxes of astrological questions and a beautifully decorative astrological board to play on. The objective is to travel around the zodiac and collect star crystals, each relating to one of the four elements. If you win, you can journey back home. The questions are both humorous and interesting, offering accurate portrayals of the signs.
A sip of wine, a bite of snack, and I’m off – conjuring the essence of each sign, imagining their quirks, their moves, their words. Will Aries charge in like a ram? Will Gemini flit about like an unpredictable butterfly? The anticipation, my friends, it’s positively electrifying, like waiting for a shooting star to streak across the night sky.
