Fryxgames have announced the Prelude expansion for their incredibly successful board game Terraforming Mars.

Terraforming Mars is currently the 5th most popular game on the Board Game Geek rankings, so it's fair to say it is one of the more popular board games out there.

This game does what it says on the box - it's a game about terraforming Mars, astoundingly. The aim is to make Mars a hospitable place to live, while also vesting in your own interests.

The corporations that players control in the game are given resources, bonuses and special actions to start the game. These aspects of the corporations will be given more depth in the new expansion.

Prelude will take you back to the early stages of the colonization process, making it a prequel of sorts. You will get to see the background story to the corporations, with the 'Prelude' cards being added to your hand. This allows for a greater asymmetry between players.

This expansion seems to have very little set up, and adds a few touches to the gameplay, which make each game a bit more unique and enhance strategic play.

Terraforming Mars: Prelude will go on sale in Summer, and will see a pre-release at the Origins expo in June. For more information, head on over to Fryxgames
