So You Think You Can Terraform Mars – an OFCC event

 

When: OFCC 2019, August 16

Intended Schedule for event is as follows-

 Where: The Hilton in Downtown Vancouver

 Why: Because we love playing Terraforming Mars!

 Number of players: 4 players minimum, 10 players max

 Event Style: Depending on the number of players, I will run the event with either one or two editions of the TM game (each copy has a five player max). Each copy will be placed on a separate table. Table 1 will feature the higher ranked players and Table 2 will feature everyone else. At the beginning of the event, players will be assigned to a random table (1 or 2). After the first and second rounds, each player's score will be tallied, recorded, and then he or she will be assigned to a table. If there is an even number of players, each table will have the same number of players (6 players = 3 per table, 8 = 4 per, etc.) If there is an odd number of players, Table 1 will have an extra player assigned, as Table 1 features more competitive play.

 Cost: $10 per player.

 Missions and Scenarios:

Please note, during the course of the event, players are limited to playing a specific corporation only once. What this means, for example, is that if you draw a corporation like Tharsis or Ecoline on the first round and then play that corp for that round, you will not be able to play that corp again during Rounds 2 or 3.

 The first round of this event will feature standard gameplay on the basic TM map. Two corporations will be dealt randomly to each player, with the player choosing a corp, then discarding the other. List of 1st round corporations: Credicor, Ecoline, Helion, Interplanetary Cinematics, Inventrix, Mining Guild, Phobolog, Saturn Systems, Teractor, Tharsis Republic, Thorgate, and UNMI (United Nations Mars Initiative)

 The second round of this event will feature standard gameplay on the Hellas Map. Three corporations will be dealt randomly to each player, with the player choosing a corp, then discarding the other two. List of 2nd round corporations: Arcadian Communities, Credicor, Ecoline, Helion, Interplanetary Cinematics, Inventrix, Mining Guild, Phobolog, Recyclon, Saturn Systems, Splice:Tactical Genomics, Teractor, Tharsis Republic, Thorgate, and UNMI.

 The third round of this event will feature standard gameplay on the Elysium Map + the mini-board and cards from the Terraforming Venus expansion. Three corporations will be dealt randomly to each player, with the player choosing a corp, then discarding the other two. List of 3rd round corporations: Aphrodite, Arcadian Communities, Celestic, Credicor, Ecoline, Helion, Interplanetary Cinematics, Inventrix, Manutech, Mining Guild, MSI (Morning Star Inc.), Phobolog, Recyclon, Saturn Systems, Splice:Tactical Genomics, Teractor, Tharsis Republic, Thorgate UNMI, and Viron

 Aside from the cards, maps and Venus board listed above, no other expansions or TM variant rules will be used (no prelude bonuses, no World Govt. etc.)

 Scoring: When the last round is complete, the individual scores for each of the three rounds for each player will be tallied. Favorite Opponent pins will also be distributed at this time. Bonus points will then be awarded based on completion of Achievements and number of Favorite Opponent pins.

 Achievements: The list of Achievements is currently TBD, but it will contain 15 different achievements, with each one worth between 1 and 3 points. Here are three possible (not definite) examples.

Marineris Mariner: Place the last ocean on Mars during a round. Score 1 extra point

Bombastic Beltalowda: Play at least 5 Asteroid or Comet event cards in a round. Score 2 extra points. Score an extra point if Deimos Down was also played this round

Martian Megalopolis: Score 7+ city tiles at the end of a round. Score 3 extra points.

Once a player has completed an Achievement and verified by TO, it cannot be completed again.

 Awards & Prizes: Each participant will receive a TM promo card (TBD) during Round 2. Individual prizes (Gift Cards or Certs) will also be given for:

Highest total score

Highest single round score (only if 6+ players)

Favorite opponent

Achievement scorer

Lowest score (aka Murphy’s Luck) (only if 6+ players)

 The Highest total score winner will also receive a trophy
