Sun Moon Rising Review
What’s your sign? Explore the zodiac through the new astrology party game Sun Moon Rising. In this game, use perception and intuition to get to know your friends. Vote on whether statements are true or false about your friends and try to match what they say about themselves.
Based on your sun sign (or zodiac), draw five cards from your sun sign’s deck to create your statement pile. Each player also gets a sun token and a moon token. You use those to vote. The first player flips over the top card from their statement pile and reads it aloud. While that player secretly thinks about whether the statement reflects who they are, everyone else secretly decides how to vote based on what they think the player will say about herself. On the count of three, everyone flips over either their sun or moon token. Sun means “true”, while Moon means “false”. If everyone matches the player’s response, then all players get to discard a card from their statement pile. If some (or all) don’t match the player’s response, those who got it wrong have to add one card from their sun sign deck to their statement pile. The card that was just read gets discarded, and it’s the next player’s turn. The player to get rid of all of her cards first wins the game!
You can play the game with three to six players ages 13 and up. The game comes with 300 double-sided cards (50 statements per sign), 12 deck dividers, six sun tokens, and six moon tokens.
Should I get it?
If you’re looking for a fun sleepover or girls’ night out game, this one will be perfect because it gets friends talking, laughing, and getting to know each other better. You don’t have to know much about astrology to play the game. As long as you know your birth date, you can find your sun sign, and the rest is all about knowing yourself and hoping you know your friends as well as you think.
