Four scientists from the International Space Federation (ISF) have been tasked with completing five different missions on Mars. Upon landing on Mars, they must construct a base with the necessary habitats and meals to live on the Red Planet. Once the scientists have established the necessities for life, they can begin to expand the base to collect data for their missions. However, the Martian planet is a harsh environment and hazards constantly impede their missions’ progress. Also, the scientist came with limited base resources, and once they run out maintaining an operational base will become impossible. If the scientists cannot complete all their missions before the base is destroyed, then the overall Mars mission will be a failure, but if the scientists can overcome all the odds, then their Mars mission will be a success. So, gather up your top scientists and try and beat the odds in Mars Base.
I created the game’s rules and systems through prototypes and playtesting. Used player feedback to clarify rules and cards by integrating icons and diagrams.
