Terraforming Mars: Prelude comes in August/September

Prelude is the third expansion for Terraforming Mars. The expansion will get released at GenCon in August and will hopefully be available in the UK a bit later in September.

Terraforming Mars: Prelude is set before the corporations begin the transformation of Mars depicted in the main game, allowing them to customize their corporations. Each player is dealt four “Prelude” cards from which they select two bonuses to improve their corporation or get a head start on their terraforming operation. In addition, the expansion offers five new corporations for players to play, as well as seven new project cards that focus on the earliest stages of the terraforming process.

Pre-Orders for the expansion will be possible later this week.

Biosphere has arrived

Biosphere, the big box game from German publisher DDD Verlag, has arrived.

Artaios, the First Father, had six children with his wife, Branwen, the First Mother. They grew up to be gods and guardians of the biosphere. The siblings loved each other very much. They were strong of build and sharp of mind. Whatever they attempted, they succeeded with ease, and faultlessly. When the young gods had grown to adulthood, Artaois and Branwen bade them each create something to add it to their creation, so that it would enrich the world and populate it. And thus, the gods created six very different types.

Time passed and the creations of the gods multiplied and spread without restraint across the biosphere. And so it came to pass that Artaios and Branwen bade their children bring order to their creation. Whoever would be the first to bring their population into accord with the biological order would be called “Lord of Creation” from thereon.

Two new arrivals from Matagot

Yesterday afternoon two new games from Matagot arrived:

After the initial print run sold out at Essen, it took a while for the reprint to arrive in the UK, but it is finally here: Meeple Circus. Pre-orders have been shipped and the remaining stock is now available to order from our website.

Xian is the second new arrival and it was co-published by Matagot with Pendragon.

246 BCE: The future first emperor of China, Ying Zheng, orders the construction of the Terracotta Army. It will be part of the “Great Mausoleum”, a monument built to celebrate the Qin dynasty’s endless glory and also to protect him in the afterlife. As a delegate of the Emperor, you will be asked to fulfill his wish by leading a team of workers and helpers to obtain resources, craft and decorate the warrior statues, and supply them with fine wood and bronze weapons.

Tomorrow three more items will get released:
