Attention all would-be Martian explorers. The critically acclaimed (and just downright addictive) board game Terraforming Mars is now available at Amazon for $57.99!
For a game that's highly complex, gorgeously designed, and yet engrossingly entertaining, Terraforming Mars usually comes with a big price tag of $70. So with a blistering 17% saving, you can grab your copy of the base game and get just under $12 off the usual price — of course, this deal may not be in orbit for too long this Cyber Monday, so act fast!
Though sadly experts do not believe we will ever see blue skies over the Red Planet, you can still indulge in a little fiction, as Terraforming Mars takes you to the 24th century and the immersive possibilities of space exploration and colonization.
Playing co-operatively, two to four players take on the role of a mega-corporation, whose aim is to convert Mars into a green, habitable (and it goes without saying profitable) new world. While collecting and spending resources, prioritizing projects and building infrastructure across the Martian landscape, players must also overcome the planet's harsh environment in order to succeed.
Terraforming Mars expansion deals
If you have already earned your Martian stripes and clocked up a few hours with the base game, you can still find great savings on Terraforming Mars's many imaginative expansion sets. For example, the Venus Next expansion box opens up the inhospitable planet's noxious atmosphere: will you be able to tame this deadly world and build a new settlement? Meanwhile if you want to explore the possibilities lying elsewhere in the Solar System, Terraforming Mars: Colonies enables players to scour for rich mineral sources and other habitable locations.
