Is Gaia the same game as Terra Mystica with a different theme? Or is the game different?

I also believe that you met the King of the Forest, Mei, and meeting him is a sign of good luck.

More than a retheme:
-Modular Board
-Reworked Cult track
-Other Changes

Feel free to browse the threads below to see what others have said.

Would the developers call this better or just different than Terra Mystica?

It's a variation of the game (for instance modular board), with a different theme.

Watch the Feuerland video preview of GP from today's BGG live Essen stream when it becomes available. Everything they discuss is in comparison to TM.

it's quite different but there are many concepts that are in both. there are lots of threads on here about the differences but real quick summary i'd say:

-it's more variable game to game as the map can change, the technologies available can change and the positions of those technologies on the replacement cult track can change - as an example imagine if Earth 1 ability - 2 VP per dwelling changed favor tiles game to game.

-the cult track has been replaced with a technology track which has 6 columns instead of 4. those technologies improve your ability to terraform / give you income / give you special abilities / etc.

-if you've played TM before you will pick up the rules quickly and easily. if you haven't the rules / leaning this game will be significantly harder than learning TM

Hi, I have covered the differences and similarities in this video. Just a note, these are play-testing components so don't mind the pieces from Terra Mystica.
