How to Play – Terraforming Mars

Welcome to your first step in winning your next board game night. Our very own Ivan Van Norman is here to help you set up that beautiful board game that you just bought at the store or that’s been sitting on your shelf for ages. After all the pieces have been separated, the maps have pulled out of the box, and the instructions dutifully thrown away; let Ivan get you started in this How to Play series. Every great game starts with an amazing first turn. Let us help you get there.

Grab your space suit and your resource cubes, because on this episode of How to Play, Ivan will be helping you with Terraforming Mars! The name of the game this time around is Victory Points (actually, it’s Terraforming Mars), which you’ll earn by helping to terraform the planet over numerous generations of settlers. You and your fellow players will be generating and spending resources to make the Red Planet a bit more habitable by increasing the atmosphere’s oxygen, raising the temperature, and introducing water. Watch the video above for the whole walkthrough!
