Pioneers of Mars is a Martian themed tabletop game. You are the Base Commander reporting to a Government or Corporate entity, with the intent of establishing yourself as the most prestigious and powerful faction. Over the course of four Generations, you will gain prestige by celebrating Mars culture, (Tourism and Olympus Mons cards) using your influence and resources to build out your main base, monitor and manipulate the media (Communications Relay), invest in research (Laboratories), and train and develop your colonists. In the end, only one individual will be elected as The First President of Mars!
The game has a random length of 12 to 15 turns separated into 4 distinct eras or Generations of Colonization. During each Generation, players unlock new worker spaces and face the risk of a planet wide dust storm wreaking havoc. Players will expand their base, allowing them a private collection of worker spaces. Careful planning is required to maximize the benefits of the base layout while risking insufficient support during a dust storm.
