I am a Rover on the Moon: Role Playing Game


Try a fun game where people can impersonate the whole apparatus needed to explore the Moon and understand how it works. The main aim of this activity is to give the participants an idea of how hard it can be to “drive” a machine in another planet, where planning is fundamental, since you cannot brake or change direction on a moment’s whim.
