À la Recherche de la Planète X is a game of logic and deduction, where you play astronomers observing the starry sky, competing with ingenuity to determine the location of this mysterious planet.
At the edge of our solar system, a planet could be hiding. In 2015, astronomers estimated that a large, distant planet could explain the unique orbits of dwarf planets and other objects. Since then, astronomers have been scanning the skies in the hope of finding that planet.
In À la Recherche de la Planète X , players take on the role of astronomers who use observations and logical deductions to search for this hypothetical planet. In each game, the application randomly selects an arrangement of objects and a location for Planet X following predefined logical rules.
In each round, as the earth orbits the sun, players use the app to scan and attend conferences. As they gain information about the location of objects, they record this information on their deduction boards. As players learn the location of different objects, they can begin to post theories, earning points.
As more and more objects are found, players narrow down the possible locations of Planet X. As soon as a player thinks they know their location and the objects on either side of it, they use the app to search. The game ends when one player successfully locates Planet X, and all players have one last chance to score extra points.
À la Recherche de la Planète X captures the excitement of discovery, the puzzle of astronomical investigation and the competition inherent in the scientific process. Will you be the first to find Planet X?
