*Please note the processing time before placing your order. Products are manufactured to fulfill orders and are not kept in "stock." Every effort will be made to ship orders as quickly as possible.
*This product requires very easy, glue-free assembly. Please see video at: colonies.boardgameboost.com
Terraforming Mars: Colonies has the same concern the base game has, which is small cubes of importance sitting unsecured and at risk accidental bumps. These overlays secure to the game's Colony Tokens and protect vital game information from any unfortunate mishaps.

Assembly is quick and easy: simply snap the outer ring on to the Colony Token, then snap the overlay into the outer ring. There are 11 overlay/ring units in the set so you'll have one for each Colony Token and won't need to swap them around.

Each overlay has spaces on the cube track as well as a slot to place the ship visiting the moon.
IMPORTANT NOTE: since some owners of Colonies may have ships other than those that come with Colonies game box, the cutouts for the ships in the overlays may not be ideal for everyone. When adding this item to your cart, you can choose whether or not you want to have the ship cutouts in your overlays. Please see product photos for more information.

***IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to production inconsistencies in the Colony Tokens that come with the game, the location of the printed art relative to the edges of the token varies from token to token. As a result, the overlay cutouts may be very slightly misaligned to the printed art at times. My goal in designing this overlay was to make the alignment within acceptable tolerances for a range of printing variations.
The outer ring of the overlay is made of 1/8" thick acrylic and measures 4.36 x 2.68" (11.1 x 6.8 CM). The overlay that snaps into the ring is made of 1/16" acrylic. This product does not include a backboard.
Q: What is this product made of? Is it strong?
A: This product is made of cast acrylic. Cast acrylic is 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: Can the overlays be taken apart once they are assembled?
A: Yes! If needed, the sets can be fully disassembled and built again later.

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 most products 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." Please see product video for more explanation.

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

These are a great addition to my game! The tabs make it easy to remove the protective paper. The extra ring is a nice use of material. Well packed and quickly shipped. Definitely recommend!

I love these overlays for the colonies! The cubes won't slide and they colonies themselves are less apt to slide around if someone jostles the table. I would definitely recommend anyone to get these for their colony tiles!

It is what I was looking for. Fits perfectly and it is possible to see the complete illustration of the tile. The seller is highly recommended and the assembly videos are clear.
