Terraforming Mars (2016) - Accessibility Teardown – Meeple Like Us
You know how in the review I complained a bit about component quality, remarking that it has a noticeably negative impact on the immersion you might otherwise experience? Well, expect that theme to be repeated a fair bit here. It’s not often I call a board game one of the seven words you can’t say on television. Terraforming Mars has been the target of at least five of them. It’s still a great game – four stars worth of great if you take our opinion seriously – but the cheap components and ridiculous player boards are a genuine, honest-to-goodness drag on the fun you’re going to have.
