Terraforming Mars Board Game

The taming of the Red Planet has begun

Corporations are competing to transform Mars into a habitable planet by spending vast resources, and using innovative technology to raise temperature, create a breathable atmosphere, and make oceans of water. As terraforming progresses, more and more people will immigrate from Earth to live on the Red Planet.

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.

Will your corporation lead the way into humanity’s new era?

About the Game

In Terraforming Mars, players control a corporation, and buy and play cards describing different projects that directly or indirectly contribute to the terraforming process. In order to win, the player has to accumulate a good terraform rating and many victory points. Victory points are awarded for anything enhancing mankind's grip on the solar system.

Time is measured in generations, and each generation consists of a Turn Order phase, a Research phase, an Action phase, and a Production phase. Players access new cards during the Research phase, take turns doing various actions in the Action phase, and produce resources and gain income during the Production phase.

The game ends when there is enough oxygen to breathe, oceans enough to allow Earth-like weather, and the temperature is well above freezing. It will then be possible, if not comfortable, to live on the surface of Mars.
