Product Description

In the 2400s, mankind begins to terraform the planet Mars. Giant corporations, sponsored by the World Government on Earth, initiate huge projects to raise the temperature, the oxygen level, and the ocean coverage until the environment is habitable. In Terraforming Mars, you play one of those corporations and work together in the terraforming process, but compete for getting victory points that are awarded not only for your contribution to the terraforming, but also for advancing human infrastructure throughout the solar system, and doing other commendable things.

The players acquire unique project cards (from over two hundred different ones) by buying them to their hand. The projects (cards) can represent anything from introducing plant life or animals, hurling asteroids at the surface, building cities, to mining the moons of Jupiter and establishing greenhouse gas industries to heat up the atmosphere. The cards can give you immediate bonuses, as well as increasing your production of different resources. Many cards also have requirements and they become playable when the temperature, oxygen, or ocean coverage increases enough. Buying cards is costly, so there is a balance between buying cards (3 megacredits per card) and actually playing them (which can cost anything between 0 to 41 megacredits, depending on the project). Standard Projects are always available to complement your cards.

When the three global parameters (temperature, oxygen, ocean) have all reached their goal, the terraforming is complete, and the game ends after that generation. Count your Terraform Rating and other VPs to determine the winning corporation!

Contents: 1 rules booklet, 1 game board, 200 player markers, 200 resource markers, 5 player boards, 233 cards, 80 tiles

  1. Just....awesome

    Posted by Axel on 25th Jul 2018

    An excellent game that can have up to 5 players, which is quite unusual but a welcome option.

    It is a simple but structured game, with a lot of depth about building an economic engine to make Mars green & wet. Do you focus on one aspect and race ahead or do you go for slow and steady, what resources will you get, what projects can you accomplish?

    There is little conflict in the game, which will be attractive to some but enough interaction, to make it nail biting about when you can do what

    The rules are a bit wiffy, with a few unclear, open to missunderstandings, that need house clarifications. Normally, this would lose the game a star but the game is so good, it still has about 8 stars left
