"A Solid New Mechanic Ties Together Previous Expansions"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

While this expansion can be used with just the base game it does a good job of bringing together other elements across all expansions so far.

Most similar to Venus Next in that it expands the play area beyond the game board it differs in that it keeps the focus on the core gameplay of terraforming Mars. Capitalising on the colonies becomes a core part of gameplay, unlike other expansions that may seem to just add another play area.

Definitely recommended.


Our world has widened before us.

Corporations expand their operations to all corners of the solar system in pursuit of minerals and resources. Most places are not suited for terraforming, but building colonies may greatly improve your income and your possibilities in achieving that higher goal — the terraforming of Mars. Send your trade fleet to distant moons! Colonize the clouds of Jupiter! And let your Earth assets propel you to success!

Terraforming Mars: Colonies, an expansion for Terraforming Mars that can be played with only the base game or with any combination of expansions, lets you visit the outer solar system. It features colony tiles where you can build colonies and send your trade fleet. It also includes new cards and corporations.
