I am hard pressed to think of a more beautiful looking game.

Andrew,

Among the Mars-inspired games this year, M:ASoC far and away is the most attractive of the bunch. Also, I played Terraforming Mars at SaltCON earlier in the month and I didn't find the art or graphic art attractive at all and while it's mechanically a good game, I didn't feel as absorbed in the narrative. I'm buying cards and moving cubes, but I never felt threatened, never felt any urgency...we simply created oceans, raised the temperature, etc.

Since its arrival two months ago, and even with a two-week suspension of games due to work, I've enjoyed more than a dozen plays of M:ASoC.

Cheers,
Joe

Mars has always fascinated me and so I am immediately interested in anything along this theme. I have pre-ordered First Martians: Adventures on the Red Planet and have high hopes for that. I decided to wait for a second printing of Terraforming Mars but my interest in that game is now waning.

But if Martians: A Story of Civilization plays anywhere near as well as it looks then I will be in Heaven - or on Mars anyway.

I'll be curious to hear your thoughts and hopefully, I'll read a few of your Session Reports in the not-too-distant future.

It is nice to hear that. Hopefully, next year you will nominate our game in the graphic design category.

I agree, i just finished setting up for my first run through and just love the feeling it provides. Only other thing to do is paint the astronauts :-)

Not sure i'll do it but they do stand out when using the pre-painted buildings, etc..
