Description:

The players acquire unique project cards by buying them to their hand. The projects can represent anything from introducing plant life or animals, hurling asteroids at the surface, building cities, to mining the moons of Jupiter and establishing greenhouse gas industries to heat up the atmosphere. The cards can give you immediate bonuses, as well as increasing your production of different resources. Many cards also have requirements and they become playable when the temperature, oxygen, or ocean coverage increases enough. Buying cards is costly, so there is a balance between buying cards (3 megacredits per card) and actually playing them. Standard Projects are always available to complement your cards.

Your basic income, as well as your basic score, is based on your Terraform Rating which increases every time you raise one of the three global parameters. However, your income is complemented with your production, and you also get VPs from many other sources.
