Mission: Red Planet - A Steampunk game of planetary exploration for 2-6 players.

The Red Planet and its natural riches could be yours...

The year is 1888, and priceless minerals have been discovered beneath the surface of Mars. Celerium could power humanity well into the future, and Sylvanite crystals are more dense than anything on Earth. Most significant of all, ice has been found, which could be used to give Mars an atmosphere and allow it to be colonized. A brutal competition to claim these natural resources has begun. Your mining company is determined to come out on top and claim the Red Planet's priceless minerals as your own.

In Mission: Red Planet, two to six players assume the roles of Mars-bound mining corporations in a Victorian steampunk era. Players send astronauts to explore various zones of Mars and mine the planet's valuable resources.

While staying true to the original game, this edition of Mission: Red Planet includes powerful new event cards and allows astronauts to explore the moon Phobos. These new features make this the definitive version of Mission: Red Planet.

Game Play

Mission: Red Planet is a majority control game, a character selection game, and an exploration game, with a balanced mix of bluffing and strategy. In order to charter shuttles to Mars, and take control of the regions where the most interesting minerals will be found, you'll have to make the best use of your nine characters' powers. The scientist can make mysterious discoveries, the saboteur can blow a rocket up before it leaves the launch pad, the pilot can change a shuttle's destination, and so on.
