I immediately had to compare to terra mystica on board game geek. On the specs, they seem very similar... how do you guys like terraforming mars compared to terra mystica?
I think I like Terraforming Mars better. Terra Mystica I also like, but I often feel frustrated that I can't get through everything that I want to get through. I have a plan, but don't feel like I have enough money or time to execute it. I get that feeling, but way worse, in Race for the Galaxy and Agricola. In Mars you choose your tasks by buying the cards, and although you do run out of money, somehow it doesn't feel as bad. I rarely win either game, but I enjoy the process of playing Mars a bit more.
