Board Game: Terraforming Mars
Since its release in 2016, people have not been able to get enough Terraforming Mars, so designer Jacob Fryxelius and lead publisher FryxGames and Stronghold Games have released five expansions, along with additional corporation cards, various promo cards, and other doodads.

Now FryxGames and Stronghold Games have announced a mid-June 2020 launch date for a Kickstarter for Terraforming Mars: Big Box, the contents of which are detailed as follows:
Terraforming Mars: Big Box is both a storage option for all the Terraforming Mars material released to date — the base game, five expansions, and the first-player rover — and a set of 3D terrain tiles to dress up the game. Included in the box are:

• 24 city tiles (four each of six designs)
• 40 forest tiles (eight each of five designs)
• 9 ocean tiles
• 14 special tiles (the original eleven, plus three new ones)

Terraforming Mars: Big Box also includes three new cards that relate to the three new special tiles, card dividers, and five plastic markers for the global parameters.
I'm not sure who has been asking for a Nuclear Zone tile in order to flatten a section of Mars that has only recently been terraformed, but that tile is coming nonetheless:
