Fantastic Theme, Great Game
This game got such a bad rap from the early previewers, that I almost canceled my preorder. I'm so glad that I didn't - I LOVE this game. Sure there are some jarring typos and the rulebook doesn't cover everything exhaustively (I learned via the Almanac posted over on BGG)... but the feel that you get of BEING AN ASTRONAUT ON MARS is AWESOME. Terraforming Mars gets you the grand theme, and First Martians brings it close and personal.
