What is Luna Mare: Mineralis & Dominatio about?

I’ve found “Luna Mare: Mineralis & Dominatio” to be an engaging board game that takes players on a journey to the moon, combining elements of strategy, resource management, and area control. Playing a game that simulates lunar exploration and dominance, makes it a unique board gaming experience.

Gameplay and Player Actions

In “Luna Mare: Mineralis & Dominatio,” you compete to discover and collect the moon’s surface elements. Your goal is to uncover valuable new resources and minerals. You are also engaged in a strategic battle for control over the lunar regions, known as Maria, to establish dominance on the moon​​.

The game is designed for 2 to 4 players and can be played in multiplayer mode or as a team game with two teams of two players each. The team members cooperate to compete against the opposing team, adding an interesting cooperative aspect to the gameplay​​.

Game Mechanics

I have found the game to elegantly combine two core mechanics: pick up & deliver and area control. This combination, along with light combat, score rivalry, unit and card management, and team play, provides a deep and tactical gaming experience. The gameplay is based on a realistic theme, with the included map representing the actual boundaries of the lunar Maria and the Apollo landing sites​​​​.

“Luna Mare: Mineralis & Dominatio” consists of two separate gameplay modes – Mineralis and Dominatio. Each mode has its unique focus, with Mineralis emphasizing pick up & deliver mechanics supported by area control, while Dominatio leans more towards area control complemented by pick up & deliver elements. This dual-mode approach offers varied gameplay, forcing players to adapt their skills and tactics​​.


 I have found this game ideal for those who enjoy strategy games with a thematic backdrop and those interested in space exploration and tactical gameplay​​.

What Makes It Fun

What sets “Luna Mare: Mineralis & Dominatio” apart is its unique theme and the combination of different game mechanics. The realistic lunar setting and the inclusion of actual lunar geography and mineralogy add to the game’s appeal. The two distinct gameplay modes provide variety and replayability, ensuring that each game session offers a new and exciting experience

I read the rulebook, I feel that could be a fun game, but I’m actually printing the components, so I don’t even have a game session. Have some doubts about the “discover an Element” action:

Is it mandatory in a highlight turn? Do I have to perform it always and anyway?Can I choose to perform it olso in a “Terrae Sector” or that’s possible only if I draw a “Terrea Mineralis” card?Thank a lot
