“The thing that makes me happy is that I know that on Mars, two hundred years from now, my books are going to be read. They’ll be up on dead Mars with no atmosphere. And late at night, with a flashlight, some little boy is going to peek under the covers and read The Martian Chronicles on Mars.”
― Ray Bradbury, The Martian Chronicles

The nations of Mars bow before the metal city.

Icarus is live on Kickstarter til March 11th, 2019. The game is beautifully crafted. Thanks again to Hunter Books for providing us an in-progress printable set to present before the Kickstarter concludes. We'll have a primer up when the game officially releases. Learn more Here.

•Mars based colony civilization, long since out of contact with Earth.

•The Monument in the center of our civilization is a massive moisture gather that branches out in aqueducts to irrigate the farthest outposts of the colonization.
