If you love board games then for sure you must have heard about “Terra Mystica.” It is one of our favorite board games, and we have played it numerous times over the years. Well, when we heard that they are trying to re-theme Terra Mystica in space we were a bit judgmental about Gaia Project. Getting the news of this re-theme, we were just imagining whether it would be a straight re-theme or will there be any significant differences? It was a genuine thinking as Terra Mystica was the best and near perfect Euro board game available in the market.
Well, we bagged the box of Gaia Project, and our group played this game numerous times and almost every time we received the opportunity to spend our time playing bard game as Terra Mystica was one of the most popular board game in our group. Therefore, everyone wanted to try this new version. We would like to tell you that the designer of Gaia Project nailed it, we have no idea how much time they dedicated in recreating the magic and improving this game, but they surely made it better.

In Gaia Project, all the payers will have the opportunity to forge and develop their every own galactic empire. Each will be given the command of one of the unique factions from the fourteen different factions and will have to compete with each other to colonize the galaxy. You will be spreading your influence by developing new technologies, building structures for producing resources, uniting your planet with federations and claiming new planets. With the growth of your empire, the economy will also become diverse, and you will unlock some special and powerful abilities that will help you in winning the game.
