Mission to Mars 2049 is a strategic family board game in which players build and manage their colonies on Mars in a race to reach the planet's North Pole. Gameplay You start with a single base on the outside of the map and gradually expand your colony one base at a time until you reach the Martian North Pole. The player who builds the water extraction station on the center of the map first, wins the game. Mission cards To add extra strategies to the game, there are mission cards. Peaceful mission cards will allow you to be GOOD and play by using only your own resources while the aggressive mission cards will let you be BAD and attack other players' posessions.
