Hello All
Quick question about the earth emblem on the map

What is the bonus one gets by placing a tile on that spot?

I see the mining titanium, greenery bonus and understand but can't find the earth bonus in rulebook.

Thanks

If you look at the symbols in the back of the rulebook, I think you may be referring to the symbol for a card?

Do you mean the symbol in the lower left?



That’s a picture of the back of a card. It means you get to draw a card from the project deck when you place there.

Does your religion have lightsabers? Nope? Didn't think so.

I dunno about you but my earth tends to have a bit more blue on it.

For the life of me I can't figure out why they drew a picture of the Earth on a card game about Mars. That's so silly of them.

It's undoubtedly a view of the future Earth (with less blue and green as the environment declines necessitating the move to Mars) as seen through a high powered telescope on Mars.

This is not Earth but a partly terraformed Mars. You can clearly see Valles Marineris, the slash in the middle of the planet (compare with card #053 Lake Marineris). Corksyro meant that the planet on the backside of the cards is the red planet, not the blue one.
If you want a picture of Earth, just look at the backside of the corporation cards where you can see the gulf of Mexico.

It would be nice if threads like this might not spiral into tag-teasing. It would make the TM forums a friendlier place to hang out. It's fine to tease someone with whom there is mutual respect and trust, but beyond that it just sort of makes you a jerk.
