Final hours!

August 1st - via:
Astronauts, you have literally dug through every inch of Mars. Whatever the Agency tells you to do, is just a minor bump for you. We are stunned and full of admiration for the colonists that resourceful.   And now for the most important thing at the... (Read More)

Final 24h of our mission!

July 31st - via:
You have no idea how much your commitment has surprised the Agency. Colonization of Mars seems easy with such an approach. We couldn't have imagined a better team. At every step you encouraged us to even greater effort. We have moved heaven and earth... (Read More)

Vastitas Borealis

July 30th - via:
Yes, it's almost certain. The Agency has approved the plan of suicide expedition to the Martian North Pole.  Many of us have explored the Earthly North Pole, but this here is a much bigger challenge. The expedition itself is going to take a lot of... (Read More)

Touch down disaster!

July 28th - via:
Many of us have been waiting for this day for a long time. In fact, since our first step on the Martian soil. Unfortunately something unexpected happened during touch down. Scientists have named it the Dust Devil. The darned phenomenon has a strong... (Read More)

Underground colony

July 27th - via:
The Agency, seeing more and more serious damage done by the cosmic radiation, made the decision to build underground habitats, partly using the natural caves. Ironic – highly advanced Mars colonists go back to the caverns like their human... (Read More)

Half of the mission behind you, Astronauts!

July 22nd - via:
A lot has happened in the last 7 days. Monitors of our terminals reported increased activity of astronauts from numerous colonies, especially in the comments section. Sometimes the staff of the Agency could not believe what they saw, and tried to... (Read More)

3D miniatures

July 18th - via:
As a proper Martian base, our outpost should have neat buildings. Currently it looks like a camping field where everyone is trying to pitch their tent faster than others, and the poles do not seem to fit one another. After such a long journey first... (Read More)

Summary of the achievements so far.

July 14th - via:
First, let me tell you it is a great pleasure to work on our new game with you. If I were to pick someone to go to Mars with, I would choose all of you.  And now to the point:   the board will stay language-independent, there will be only icons, no... (Read More)

A meeple's garb!

July 13th - via:
Many of you have asked if we can keep the wooden markers and not replace them with miniatures.  We appreciate your support and commitment,which is why all of the wooden components of the game will not be removed from the box, and miniatures from the... (Read More)

Mission to Phobos

July 13th - via:
Who would have thought that the Agency would start executing this agenda so quickly. Nothing seems to go as planned anymore. Other space agencies have joined the competition and each of them wants to send the first man to the moon.  Yes, moon, but... (Read More)

The Dark side of Mars

July 12th - via:
Nobody anticipated this mission could turn against the Agency and us. Recruiting the ex-cons raised objections of public opinion since the very beginning, but the Agency knew better. The recruitment process was thought through and prepared very well,... (Read More)

Last 2h for early birds!!! Language versions!!!

The Quadrilingual Update Hello fellow Martians.

July 12th - via:
An update on language-compatibility as feedback and input from the community continues to help the game grow and prosper. First up, the names of buildings on the game board, as well as the text on the corporation cards and other game cards (that were... (Read More)

Something went wrong in a colony nearby, and administration won't tell us what exactly happened. Now there are rumors all over our colony. One thing is certain: we have unexpected quests, who need to use our technical infrastructure to deal with the... (Read More)

Home, sweet home!

July 11th - via:
At the moment of touchdown everyone of us wanted to leave the lander as quickly as possible, but recently we go back there a lot, especially for this one thing that reminds us of morning breakfast with family.  Coffee from the only coffee machine on... (Read More)

Double-sided board – important decisions!

July 11th - via:
OK, we have to know what to do. Stretch goal with double-sided board is nearly reached. Our proposal is to discuss this properly first and then make the decision tomorrow. We also suggest such a solution: One side of the board, players' sheets and... (Read More)

Toys for real cowboys!

July 11th - via:
Capabilities of this machine have not given us enough satisfaction during years of testing on the Earth. Although it is terribly slow, everyone wants to ride it a little and feel like one of the few Martian drivers. Sometimes we are like children,... (Read More)

Space suit project!

July 11th - via:
I don't know who was responsible for the project of new space suits, but my staff wearing green suits looks silly, which gets more and more funny with each passing day. Well, you got what you wanted! Colorful miniatures/suits of your colonists are... (Read More)
