Mars Rover press shot square

On Friday at UK Games Expo, I got to share some news I've been excited about for a while – one of my best designs, Mars Rover, is coming out from Spiral Galaxy Games in 2018.

It's a wonderful strategy game where players are rival scientists controlling a rover on Mars. It's competitive, where each scientist is trying to be the most influential one at the end of the mission, but you share control of the only piece that moves around the board - the Rover. Sometimes, you'll work together to find interesting landmarks or obtain valuable samples, and sometimes you'll stab each other in the back like the vicious academic rivals you are.

Deckbuilding, Action Programming

We're doing some additional content development on Mars Rover as we move forward to secure some partnerships with space agencies – so hopefully, we'll be announcing mission content from real missions to mars. Each mission pack comes with new samples, research cards, and a scale model rover miniature.

Really excited about this title and hopefully going to have tons of cool updates as we get new stuff planned. Should be kickstarter midway through 2018, delivery late 2018.

Congrats.
If the space agency partnerships don't pan out, you always have a wealth of conspiracy stuff to use.

Glad to run into you in the playtest zone!

Hi Adam – nice to meet you, albeit briefly. Hope you were able to get some good feedback on your game! As you could have guessed by my posts here, – I'm a big fan of the playtest zone.

@SSM – just wait for my "they faked the moon landing" expansion (just kidding...probably...)

The Race to the Face, Find

The Race to the Face, Find the Witch Woman, Where Have the Lizards Gone, could all be expansions.
I was looking at conspiracy stuff last night & saw something about Obama's clone teleporting to Mars for some reason.

If anyone is interested

If you want early access to prototypes, miniature giveaways, etc, join the mission over at the Mars Rover Facebook Group.

Spiral Galaxy Games is going to be doing a lot of community involvement as we settle on which real missions will be included in the Kickstarter. Right now, we're running a poll on people's favorite rovers to see what we want for the core game.
