Rescue mankind and make your fortune! In a distant future, the rising sea level and increased resource consumption has driven mankind to increase investment in polar research. Your objective in Antarctica is to develop research centers in Antarctica and to mine resources- for research purposes only, of course. The sun orbits Antarctica counter-clockwise, and each ship it thaws moves on for scientific progress. At the end of the game, victory points for all kinds of majorities are granted. Will your consort be the one that gained a fortune... er, has done the most to rescue mankind?
