Hellas and Elysium (2017) (MSRP: $19.99) In the first expansion for Terraforming Mars, consists of a double-sided game board presenting two new areas of Mars: Elysium takes players almost to the opposite side of Mars’ equator, with vast lowlands for oceans in the north and a dry, mineral-rich south. Place a tile on Olympus Mons, the highest peak in the solar system, to gain three free cards! Hellas, the southern wild, includes Mars’ south pole and the enormous seven-hex Hellas crater that just begs to become a giant lake. Building around the pole gives you new placement bonuses in the form of heat and possibly even water. Each of these maps consists of new sets of milestones and awards with relevance for that particular map. Place three tiles around the south pole to be a Polar Explorer, for example, or race to have the most estates beside water on Elysium!

Terraforming Mars is a board game for 1 to 5 players designed by Jacob Fryxelius. In Terraforming Mars players take the role of corporations working together to terraform the planet by raising the temperature and creating oxygen, water, and plant and animal life. Players compete to earn the most victory points, which are measured by their contribution to terraforming, as well as building human infrastructure. Players accomplish these goals by collecting income and resources which allow them to play different cards, which represent either buildings or events, which then increase their income or resources or directly contribute to terraforming the planet or building infrastructure.
The game has been well received by fans and critics, winning or being nominated for multiple awards and accolades.
Five expansions have been released, Hellas and Elysium (2017), Venus Next (2017), Prelude (2018), Colonies (2018), and Turmoil (2019). A legacy variant is being worked on and is expected to be released in 2020 or 2021.
In the 2400s, mankind begins to terraform the planet Mars. Giant corporations, sponsored by the World Government on Earth, initiate huge projects to raise the temperature, the oxygen level, and the ocean coverage until the environment is habitable. In Terraforming Mars, you play one of those corporations and work together in the terraforming process, but compete for getting victory points that are awarded not only for your contribution to the terraforming, but also for advancing human infrastructure throughout the solar system, and doing other commendable things.
