Gaia Project is a new game in the line of Terra Mystica. As in the original Terra Mystica, fourteen different factions live on seven different kinds of planets, and each faction is bound to their own home planets, so to develop and grow, they must terraform neighboring planets into their home environments in competition with the other groups. In addition, Gaia planets can be used by all factions for colonization, and Transdimensional planets can be changed into Gaia planets.

All factions can improve their skills in six different areas of development — Terraforming, Navigation, Artificial Intelligence, Gaiaforming, Economy, Research — leading to advanced technology and special bonuses. To do all of that, each group has special skills and abilities.

The playing area is made of ten sectors, allowing a variable set-up and thus an even bigger replay value than its predecessor Terra Mystica.

Tournament specific rules:

There will be no tiebreaker during the heats. A tie is a win for all players.

Setup for the heats will be the base board setup, factions chosen after the entire board is set up.

Players with the best records will advance to the top 16.

Setup for the semifinal and final will be completely random -- with factions chosen at random as well. Players may then bid on the chosen factions with end game points (not in game points).

Tiebreakers for the semifinal and final are:

  1. Whoever bid the most amount of points
  2. Most points in end game bonuses
  3. Coin flip

Players with the best records will advance to the top 16.
