Colony Development

As players master the Resource Chain, they have greater ability to contribute to the strategies of Colony Development: The current highest form of player participation to create a self-sustaining civilization on Mars. Using collective resources to support colony boosting activities like constructing astronaut houses or sponsoring rocket convoys helps the colony grow and thrive while yielding the most valuable rewards to participating players. 

Colony Development also unlocks your ability to get Ownership Cards — the rarest and most valuable cards in the game. Ownership cards provide powerful skill bonuses that give you an edge over the competition.


Each week, a new building project starts in the colony and players can contribute construction tokens to help fund it. Construction projects last for two weeks and at the end of each one, a winner is drawn. The chance of winning the main prize is linked to how much you contribute — the more you contribute, the higher your chance of winning.

If you don't win the main prize, don't worry — everyone who contributes will receive a future discount of either 25% or 10%. So come back and try again next time!



Rocket convoys are essential for bringing in new resources and supplies. Each convoy mission lasts for six weeks, with multiple ownerships and sponsorships up for grabs. A new convoy starts every three weeks, so there are always opportunities to win.

To participate, players can contribute fuel tokens to help power the rocket convoy. And the best part? Individuals can win multiple rewards. The more you contribute, the greater chance you have of winning.

Don't forget – everyone who contributes will receive a prize, whether it's a major reward or a future discount.



Innovations are key to building a thriving human presence on Mars. Each innovation project lasts four weeks. And new projects start every two weeks. To participate, players can contribute data tokens for a chance to win the major innovation, or 1 of up to 50 minor innovation prizes. If you don't win any of the innovations, don't worry – you'll still receive a future discount as a reward. So contribute as much as you can and try your luck!

Check In

In Colonize Mars, there's a little secret to winning more rewards that many players overlook: checking in. Each project will have four stages, and players should make sure to click the check-in button during each stage to unlock more rewards.

Every successful check-in will give you a 25% chance to get a bonus reward.

If you complete all four check-ins, you'll get a 100% chance to get a bonus reward!

The bonus rewards for completing check-ins are:

  • Contribution multipliers, which take effect before the winner is drawn. That means they might just boost your chances enough to help you win the main prize! 
  • Contribution refunds — get back up to 60% of what you contributed, no strings attached. 
  • And finally, there are special exclusive ISA colony development patches, which come in three rarities.

So, if you want to increase your chances of winning, make sure to complete all four check-ins during each project. You never know, you might just win a contribution multiplier or patch that sets you apart from the rest. Good luck!
