Terraforming Mars: In the Shadow of Deimos is the first book set in the Terraforming Mars universe, written by Jane Killick, formerly known for her work on Babylon 5. The book is now available in the web shop.
This year marks the 10-year anniversary for our game Space Station. Last year, we made a second edition of the game together with Hexy Studio, fitting their game series about the StarScrappers. The Second Edition is named StarScrappers: Orbital and features streamlined rules, rebalancing of the cards, and gorgeous new artwork. Check it out here!
we’ve experienced some technical difficulties which increased some shipping rates without us realizing it. We have now reduced the shipping rates again for the affected regions: Denmark, Finland, Baltics.
We have also recently lowered the shipping cost to North America by about 15%.
From June 1st to August 31st, we will add 1 Summer Season Promo to each and every order made in the web shop. This card, Bactoviral Research, is designed to make microbe strategies more attractive while putting players into various dilemmas: “Should I play it now to get my microbe cards going, or should I wait until I have more science tags?” “Should I play it now to get the extra science tag I need, or should I wait for other science tags to show up?” “Should I place the microbes on a terraforming microbe card, or should I place them on VP-gaining microbe cards?”
Angel Fury is now on Kickstarter, and it is already funded! This is your chance to get it before all others, and at a decent discount as well. Angel Fury is out most elaborate board game project yet. With over 200 miniatures, it is the perfect crossover between miniature war games and board games. So if you like miniature games, but rarely have the time to play them, Angel Fury will fit perfectly in your collection, with play time between 1-2 hours.
The game also features resource management, hand management, deck-building, and asymmetrical player powers. You can see the introduction below, or at the Kickstarter page. We look forward to welcome you there!
Speaking of Kickstarters, many have now received their Terraforming Mars: Big Box, but the process is long and will continue a few more weeks. We’re also in the production step of Terraforming Mars: Ares Expedition, which is turning out great. Cheers!
First off, Prelude is now launched for the digital version! This long awaited expansion has finally landed, and lets players kickstart their engines and makes the game faster. Prelude is by far the most appreciated expansion for Terraforming Mars, and we’re thrilled to have it out there.
On another note, Brexit is soon final, and the coming week up until Thursday is the last week we’ll be able to send orders to the United Kingdom without adding heavy export costs to each order. So make sure to buy your Christmas gifts soon!
Talking about Christmas gifts, we’ve also added Gift Cards to our web shop. If you don’t know what to give, give a gift card and let them choose for themselves!
