Elysium takes the players almost to the opposite side of Mars’ equator, 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 get 3 free cards!
Hellas, the southern wild, includes Mars’ south pole and the enormous 7-hex Hellas crater that just begs to become a giant lake. Building around the pole will give you new placement bonuses in form of heat and even water.
Each of these maps consists of complete new sets of Milestones and Awards with relevance for that particular map. Put 3 tiles around the south pole to be a Polar Explorer, or race for having the most estates beside water on Elysium!
