Description: Terraforming Mars: Hellas & Elysium, the first expansion for the 2016 smash-hit Terraforming Mars, consists of a double-sided game board representing two new areas of Mars: Hellas, which includes Mars' south polar region; Elysium, which is on the opposite side of Mars' equator.
Each of these maps consists of new sets of milestones and awards with relevance for that particular map. As examples, place three tiles around the south pole to be a Polar Explorer, or race to have the most estates beside water on Elysium!

Two New Maps Put Your Strategies to the Test!
The Hellas map focuses on the southern pole of Mars and the great Hellas sea. The plant bonuses line the equator near the top of the map, with a new placement bonus in the form of heat on the Hellas sea tiles and surrounding the south pole. There's also another new placement bonus at the center of the south pole which allows players to exchange six megacredits to place an ocean tile on any available ocean area.
In addition to the new placement bonuses, there are new Milestones and Awards to pursue.
Milestones: Diversifier - Have 8 different tags in play. Tactician - Have 5 cards with requirements in play. Polar Explorer - Have 3 tiles on the two bottom rows Energizer - Have 6 energy production. Rim Settler - Have 3 jovian tags.
Awards: Cultivator - Most greenery tiles. Magnate - Most automated cards in play (green cards). Space Baron - Most space tags (event cards do not count) Excentric - Most resources on cards. Contractor - Most building tags (event cards do not count).
