A visually appealing game building planet/moon settlements.

I have Martians: A Story of Civilization on pre-order and am waiting for the 2nd edition of Terraforming Mars - thanks for that.

But they are still not what I am really looking for. I want to see the base/settlement/building grow before me. Roll for the Galaxy doesn't really appeal in this respect either. Difficult for me to convey what I actually mean but I will know if I see it = if it exists.

Among the Stars you build a space station. So not on a planet out moon but close.

I think Spice Empires: 4X fits the bill and adds more interesting stuff.

Bit fiddly I'm afraid. Looks a bit SPI wargamey?

Two games I was unaware of Mats - thanks for that.

Dilluvia Project looks a little busy for me and doesn't hit the theme as I would like - an interesting looking game though.

Lunarchitects however might be what I am looking for. The only downside is it is expensive.

Thanks again.

Galaxy trucker you build space ships??

Xia: Legends of a Drift System

I think the one I was thinking of was Twilight Imperium (Third Edition) but not sure now this is what you're looking for!

Thanks for that Sarah. I already have Leaving Earth.
It is a space mission game recreating the space race. Not the building game I was looking for.

Have ordered Lunarchitects direct from Iron Kitten Games.
Comes with all kickstarter stretch goals and fancy tray - $65 delivered. UK friendly.

Thanks again Mats. Can't believe I missed it.

- incidentally. Iron Kitten Games customer service is amazing.

Looking at Eclipse now Sarah.
Has potential. I feel Lunarchitects nailed it for me though.

Once again I would like to mention Iron Kitten Games for a superb customer experience. Excellent.
