My copy arrived today and i couldnt wait to give solo a go.

One of the cards i drew got me interested: "Search for Life" (roughly translated from german, its card no 005)

I am absolutey fascinated by the design of this card gameplay wise, very well done ! The developer of this game should consider applying game designer of one of the great card games like netrunner or magic

Just want to share my excitement about this card

Cheers

PS: i didnt find life on mars

Many of the project cards are very thematic in their implementation. One of my favorites is Predators (blue card), which provides an action to take one animal from another card and put it on the Predators card (i.e. one animal eats another). In one game my bear (pictured on the Predators card) ate a fish from the other player. Bears love fish!

What does the card do, gameplay-wise?

Each generation, it lets you pay 1M€ to look at the top card of the deck. If that card has a microbe tag, you get a science resource on the card. In the end it is worth 3VP if you have any science resources on it.

Thematically, think as if a research team was sent out each generation to an area of mars to search for life and the drawn card tells if they actually found life there or not. If they found it, they reached their goal so no more searching was needed.
