YEAR: 2219
The days of Earth being the center of humankind’s attention has ceased. The time of long-distance spaceflight and planet colonization is upon us.
Mars has been colonized for more than 100 years. Today, numerous institutions use Mars as the center of their operations. The Asteroid Mining Assembly of Corporations (A.M.A.C) oversees the works of all asteroid mining.

Ceres, a dwarf planet lying amid the chaos of the Asteroid Belt, is now the home of the asteroid mining industrial complex.

While corporations compete for profit and power, and operations on Ceres grow rapidly, so is the demand for high-skilled laborers.

Are you ready to board the mission and lead Ceres? CERES awaits you!

Ceres is a 1-4 Sci-Fi worker placement game where players take the role of an Asteroid Mining Corporation in the near future and try to outplay their opponents and rule Ceres! The game consists of 3 rounds that represent 3 years in Ceres and the respective full business cycles of the corporations. Players can choose among a variety of actions including launching mining probes to the Asteroid Belt, trading raw materials, constructing and upgrading their core facilities as well as expanding the colony of Ceres, improving their technology through research and liaising with the Mars council in order to exploit their power even more!
Ceres has been co-developed with an astrophysicist for the best possible thematic applications and brings a couple of innovative twists to the worker placement genre!

MARS CONTRACTS
Mars, amongst the numerous institutions of its thriving colony, facilitates the headquarters of the Asteroid Mining Assembly of Corporations.
The A.M.A.C. council has always had a deep bureaucratic structure consisting of a number of different unions and federations serving mostly their own plans and agendas. It expects your unwavering commitment to integrating their requirements by fulfilling their contracts.

In Mars Contracts, you get to follow certain ways of development in your corporations trying to fulfill contracts (objectives) of different unions. Dealing with these unions will offer you new actions combinations and rewards.

In this expansion the union tiles are introduced. Players may use their leader tokens to take contract cards from the union tiles that provide them with some small objectives that can be fulfilled by following certain paths of development or use specific actions through the game. For every contract they fulfill, each union provides more victory points to all players who contributed by completing their contracts.

COMETS
Comets are now approaching the Asteroid Belt. They will offer valuable resources for your corporation and will help you reach more distant Asteroids as they orbit around the sun. Of course there is always a chance they will explode if they plunge into the fiery embrace of the sun. Will you take the risk to send one of your probes to them?

In this expansion, Comet tokens are placed on the Asteroid belt and they travel, from round to round, from belt to belt, towards the sun. Send there a probe using the same rules as for Asteroids and get advantage of their resources and victory points. Afterwards you may move your probe at no cost to an available neighbor asteroid or risk to stay on it. There is a chance that instead of providing more resources and victory points they get exploded by checking the explosion cards and earn less than expected.
