Description
This is the 3rd edition of Phil Eklund's[sierra-madre-games.eu] classic hard sci-fiction space game High Frontier. This edition of the game includes the updated Advanced game rules, the Colonization expansion, and the solo Interstellar expansion modified for multiplayer play.

Not too long from now, manufacturing techniques conducted exclusively in space will allow the creation of incredible new materials, which will enable amazing advancements and improvements to the human condition. Some people, and the corporations that they control, will recognize the tremendous profits to be made from these materials, as will governments. These entities will race to set up manufacturing facilities in space, particularly on asteroids within our solar system.

To enable this process, space-based enterprises must accumulate water in orbiting fuel depots that can be used as rocket propellant. Water in low Earth orbit is the key to success for these enterprises. At first, water must be taken from Earth, at tremendously high cost. But in time, water can and will also be manufactured on Earth’s moon, Mars, and other bodies within the solar system, at a much lower cost. But to do this, you must first discover how; and the first to do so will gain the profitable high-ground in the coming exo-globalization!


This new edition of the game was funded by a Kickstarter campaign in the summer of 2015 and will be publised by One Small Step games[ossgamescart.com] in early 2016.

The Alive and Complete (constantly updated) rules are available online here[docs.google.com]. They take quite awhile to load, so it may be useful to save them as a pdf and upload them before trying to access them from in the game.

For further help and information see the dedicated Yahoo group[groups.yahoo.com] and BGG forum[boardgamegeek.com].

Hi Gideon, thanks for the comment. There's no preset, but there's not alot of set up for the variants. The exomigration/exploration cards wouldn't be that hard to add, but they're not there now. I don't have any plans to add them, but the beautiful thing about TTS is that a mod is just a save file. They're really easy to customize.

This is awesome!! Are there presets for the various scenarios? (E.g. the CEO solitaire.) Also, are there cards for the optional modules (exomigration, etc.)

This is awesome. The only thing is it looks like there are only 4 spots for players to sit instead of 5. Am I missing something?
