Terraforming Mars FILLING
Limited Capacity filling up

This session includes teaching the game, so come right in to register if you want to try the game but have never had the chance to do so thus far. Players who had played before are more than welcome to join too!!

The game is set in year 2400 where players will play one of those mega corporations and work together in the terraforming process of Mars, but at the same time compete for getting victory points that they are awarded not only for their contribution to the terraforming effort, but also for advancing human infrastructure throughout the solar system, and doing other commendable things.

Each player keeps track of their production and resources on their player boards, and the game uses six types of resources: MegaCredits, Steel, Titanium, Plants, Energy, and Heat. On the game board, you compete for the best places for your city tiles, ocean tiles, and greenery tiles. You also compete for different Milestones and Awards worth many VPs. Each round is called a generation (guess why) and consists of the following phases:

1) Player order shifts clockwise.
2) Research phase: All players buy cards from four privately drawn.
3) Action phase: Players take turns doing 1-2 actions from these options: Playing a card, claiming a Milestone, funding an Award, using a Standard project, converting plant into greenery tiles (and raising oxygen), converting heat into a temperature raise, and using the action of a card in play. The turn continues around the table (sometimes several laps) until all players have passed.
4) Production phase: Players get resources according to their terraform rating and production parameters.

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!
