Terraforming Mars

Andrew says: TM is one of my favorite mid-to-heavy weight games of the past few years. It is a satisying blend of card-based engine building, tile-laying, card drafting, all tied together as an economic euro-style game. I have played this game over 50 times and there's no sign of stopping.

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.
