Tharsis is a turn-based strategy game which explicitly uses dice to determine the outcomes of your actions. Spaceship Iktomi is on a mission to Mars when suddenly one of its modules blows up. At every turn, the situation deteriorates and new modules present problems which might damage the ship or reduce the health of its remaining four crew members. At each turn, you assign one action to each of the surviving crew.

Each astronaut has a few hitpoints and a few dice which can be rolled to repair a module, generate research, gather resources which depend on the module he/she is at, or power a special ability which varies with the crew member. Each action destroys one die, which can be regenerated by consuming food or by special actions. At the end of every turn you choose an additional crew action, whose effectiveness depend on the stress level of the astronauts. Your mission is to have at least one member of the crew (and the ship) survive for 10 turns — even resorting to cannibalism if necessary.
