Mission: Red Planet Second Edition v1

Mission: Red Planet

The genetic difference between men and apes is only three percent.

Steampunk meets the two Brunos with the Mission: Red Planet Second Edition rules summary and reference.

This fun game from Bruno Faidutti and Bruno Cathala shares some of the DNA of the former’s classic Citadels, but adds complexity with a bit of area control as well. The second edition by Fantasy Flight Games hits just the right visual note with light-hearted steampunk visual stylings and little plastic astronauts. There’s a two player variant shoe-horned into the rules, but the game is definitely better with more players; and it doesn’t overstay its welcome as the game is limited to ten rounds. A well made, enjoyable little game.
