Quirky art, no-surface-required-play, and a light atmosphere are the qualities oddball Aeronauts is all about.

“Stone, zombies & even physics are merely obstacles to be surpassed as you build, and struggle through your maze to reach the prize.” That’s the catchy line heading up Maze Master, a card game were you choose 3 actions every turn and resolve them. Actions can be as simple as building or moving, or advanced as combat, rewinding, teleporting and more. The goal of the game is to reach the powerful relic, then escape the mountain with it before the other players come after you.
