Terraforming Mars Hellas & Elysium
Hellas & Elysium is the first expansion for Terraforming Mars. It features two new game boards which can be played instead of the main game’s Tharsis map.
- Elysium takes players almost to the opposite side of Mars’ equator, with vast lowlands for oceans in the north and a dry, mineral-rich south. Place a tile on Olympus Mons, the highest peak in the solar system, to gain three free cards!
- Hellas, the southern wild, includes Mars’ south pole and the enormous seven-hex Hellas crater that just begs to become a giant lake. Building around the pole gives you new placement bonuses in the form of heat and possibly even water.
