Like the author, I grew up with a sense of wonder and anticipation regarding space travel. As our generation has in a sense 'lost the moon' I find the concept of Colony Moon to be compelling. Those motivations aside, the game itself is quite simply fun.
The rules are easy to read and follow, so even a cursory amount of preparation will allow you to host a game without too much worry. The basic interactions of the game are interesting on their own, but adding in characterization and roleplay magnifies this significantly.
The game is ideal for those who love games like Civilization/Alpha Centauri or Outpost but have always wanted more from the diplomatic and political side of things.
I got the game for personal enjoyment, but after reading and testing it, feel it will be useful and enjoyable in an educational setting as well.
This game is well worth a look.
