Portland Game Collective has nothing to do with the release or production of this game.
Description from BGG:
Hipparchus was an ancient Greek astronomer who calculated the ecliptic and Orbit of the Moon, the paths of the sun and the moon, and in the process he also discovered that the center of the universe was not Earth.
Players become ancient Greek astronomers and present their findings on the sun, the moon, and the earth to each other. Share the study of one celestial body with the other without monopolizing it, and gain more authority.
Hipparchus is a 2 player trick taking game. There are three suits of cards in the game without any numerical values. Players can lead and follow tricks by playing grouping of 1 to 3 cards.
