Terraforming Mars 5/28?

Recommended Posts

Damn, I was really excited to jump in on this game with you all. I LOVE Terraforming Mars. But a 6:30 start time is gonna be late for me this evening. I have to get up at 4:00 am to make a journey to the Kitsap Peninsula the next morning, so the smart thing for me to do would be to go home early for a change. @Khail thanks for including me in the game, but I have to bow out. Maybe another time.

curious to know what expansions you guys are using?

ive played with all of em and wanted to know others impressions.

Probably just Prelude - it is by far my favorite.  The alternate maps are also good but we'll stick to the main one with a new player.

I own colonies but haven't tried it yet.  Venus just seem to bog the game way down.

Bummer!  I remembered you usually had an early wake up call so I figured I'd make sure.  Another time man!

@DisruptiveConduct I have played three of the expansions so far.

Hellas &Elysium: Love the different Milestones and Awards. Fun variety to the game with new maps.

Venus Next: It was OK. I felt it kind of bogged the game down. I haven't played with it since.

Prelude: A MUST expansion. It really gives the game a kickstart and I think it only enhances the base game. I would never want to play TR now without Prelude included.

Right on. We played with Prelude a few times and found that it sped the game up a little too much for our liking. Games that used to end in Generation 14-17 ended on Generation 10-13

Venus is good if you use random Milestones and Awards. Someone ordered cardboard chits for all of them so we can randomize them every game.

Colonies I played twice and found them slightly useful like when you really, really need a titanium and cannot pull the cards to up your production.

The alternative maps are choice. love the new dynamics they add to the board.

Sorry you won’t be able to make it Bobby. I was looking forward to seeing you!

the only expansion I’ve played with is Prelude. I share Bobby's sentiment. It’s wonderful!

Same here, Jim! It's been a while since I have been able to to find time to come in Tuesday night. I only have a few more weeks before I won't be able to do that anymore.
