Description

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.

High Frontier is the third edition of Phil Eklund's game of exploration and exploitation of our solar system, and is considered to be the most realistic simulation of rocket travel ever published.

The 3rd edition is the definitive edition of High Frontier including:

-36 new double-sided cards including 21 new patent cards, glories, ventures and radical side crew factions
-Redesign and rebalancing of the 84 existing cards from the Basic and Colonization games
-Separate colony counters, new and rebalanced futures for deep, competitive play experiences
-Expanded and corrected maps based on the latest information and images from the Dawn and New Horizons probes
