COSMIC JOURNEYTM: Entertainment with a Message


Think of it as the Trivial Pursuit and Monopoly of the New Age. COSMIC JOURNEY TM, created by Howard Moore of Richmond, VA, is a board game that teaches and enlightens. It came to Moore while he was praying for peace several years ago. In a visionary flash he conceived the idea, and turning from his prayer to his typewriter, wrote out an outline of the game in a single siting. “It was as if my head was opened up and this idea put into it,” says Moore.

Unlike any other board game on the market, Cosmic Journey TM engages the spiritual imagination of the player. It becomes a sort of microcosm of life with its pitfalls and high points, good deeds and bad, positive and negative karma. Players begin the game on an earthly plane, moving their talismans around the board at the toss of the dice. Depending on where they land, they pick up Risk cards, Karma cads or question cards. Risk cards pose possibilities to the players. Karma cards examine good deeds and bad. And Question cards test the players’ knowledge of matters spiritual and Divine. When a player earns a certain amount of points (51 or 100, depending on what version of the game is being played) he 0r she moves his or her talisman to the Ascension Ring in the center of the board. The first player to make their Ascension wins the game of righteous living.

COSMIC JOURNEYTM is entertaining. But more than that, according to its creator, the board game enlightens, informs, andaids the player in examining his or her life and motives behind actions. “COSMIC JOURNEYTM has a purpose beyond entertainment”, says Moore. “It raises the consciousness of the people on the planet to make way for the New Age. I t helps people think about what they do and say. It shows people, whether poor or rich, that they can do something for others and the planet itself.” “You can get wrapped up in the game for hours on end and when you come away from it you have done more than simply played a game, you have learned more about your physical and spiritual life”, he says.

COSMIC JOURNEYTM is available for $29.99 = $5.95 S&H; from Cosmic Journey Publishing, Inc. 5520B Lakeside Ave., Richmond VA 23228. To order by credit card, call 1-800-858-5237.
