This is an expansion, not a stand-alone game.
Ares Expedition: Discovery brings brand new card mechanics into the beloved Terraforming Mars: Ares Expedition. Fans of the original Terraforming Mars will love the return of Awards and Milestones, with a brand new twist that only enhances the replayability. Additionally, some project cards will give you the opportunity to replace one of your phase cards with a new and imporoved version that increases the bonus you receive when you choose that phase. Upgrading a phase card can revolutionize your strategy, but can also change the way your oppenents predict your play. What’s more, each phase card has two divergent upgrade choices to tailor your phase deck to your engine’s specific strategy. There’s a whole world – or rather planet – of possibility!
Included inside: 38 project cards, 40 upgraded phase cards, 4 corporation cards, 16 victory point tokens, 40 tag tokens, 18 Milestone and Award tiles, 3 card deviders.
