Terraforming Mars is an incredible game that's tremendous fun, but has player mats that are made of thin, slippery card stock which creates the risk of pieces being easily bumped accidentally.

This product solves this by providing an overlay to hold everything in place. The overlay has bins for the resource cubes and tracks with small notches for the income marker cubes, plus as a bonus also has a long slot in which to store a supply of player cubes for marking hexes or cards. Each income track also has a cube slot to the right of the "10" space to indicate "+10" when income reaches high levels. This slot is rotated 45 degrees to make it easily discernible from other cubes.

Opinions vary on whether there should a divider wall or not between the Energy and Heat resource bins, so now you can have it whichever way you prefer! The overlay comes with a wall there but is built to break off if you prefer to slide your cubes from one bin to another. See the photos and video for more information!

Because of the tight nature of the artwork for the income tracks on the player mats, there is little to no space for material between each numbered square. As a result the overlay tracks are just slightly out of vertical alignment with the player mat, but if you look at the photos and video you can see that it is barely noticeable and will have no impact on appearance or reading what number the marker cube is resting on.

Each overlay measures 8.67 x 6.31 x .125" (220 x 160 x 3mm). A stack of 5 overlays is about .63" (15mm) tall.

No assembly is needed but removal of a paper backing is required. It is strongly recommended that you watch the video guide to preparation and use. To view, open a separate browser window and copy and paste the following URL:

FAQ
Q: What is this product made of? Is it strong?
A: This product is made of 1/8" (3mm) cast acrylic. Cast acrylic is most equatable to the properties of glass: it's generally durable, but brittle and can crack and break if dropped on a hard surface or bent too hard. It can also be scratched with anything abrasive so please handle with care.

Q: I've received the product, but what are these strange protrusions from each piece that look like the letter "B?"
A: That is a feature of any product from Boardgameboost.com to assist you in the removal of the protective adhesive paper that the pieces ship with. Instead of using a fingernail to get an edge of the paper, simply snap off each "B" piece and the paper will come with it. "B" stands for "break off." See the video linked above for more explanation.

Please message me if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your interest!

    Great product. Works as described. The first thing that I did, after I got the paper off of them, was to set up a game to see how they affected gameplay. I have to say that I love how they keep those cubes in place. Even inf the plastic overlay shifts, it is easy to just slide it back in place and all the pieces go with it. No more cubes shifting all over mat during the game. I like that these also have one extra slot built in for a 10 signifier. Even the mats themselves don't do that.

    I looked at many different sources for these and this one wound up hitting all of the checkboxes, and it was the cheapest that I was able to find.

    Great product and great seller.
