First released in 2005, Mission: Red Planet is a steampunk competition that features area control and hand management. Players take the roles of mining corporation owners on a resource-depleted earth, and it is their job to conquer the valuable zones on planet Mars, which provide rare minerals and ice. By deploying character cards, players can gather resources and complete assigned missions to gain victory points. The 2015 Edition also features refined rules, new exploitable areas and updated actions for players to discover.
Mission: Red Planet plays 2 – 6 players in 45 to 90 minutes. It is expected to be released in Q3 2015, with an MSRP of $49.95.
