It's actually 29 days in the real cycle. Look it up, @flamma

comment How do you keep track of the Moon?
@flamma you need to turn that comment into a separate answer, since (1) I don't feel it's a valid answer, and (2) I don't use it, and (3) I won't use it, thus making it not a suitable addition to my answer.

comment Does 5e address the murderhobos problem?
@SevenSidedDie — actually, it's not the first. There's no penalty for it under Alston D&D Cyclopaedia (see p. 267 thereof). It's mechanically simpler under 5E than Alston - because Alston makes 1/4 (round down) of subdual as real damage, while 5E just makes non-lethal a choice at time of last HP being done.

Note that this question really doesn't need, nor benefit from, the system tag, as lunar tracking is important in a wide variety of games.

comment How do you play a solo game of Steve Jackson Games' Car Wars?
I've run Car Wars more as an RPG than as a board game. It's a hybrid design - it straddles the boundary. But it also has a HUGE raft of GM'd adventure scenarios in ADQ, and a few standalone ones were printed.
