I have not played either, so I am asking people who have played both: How are Libertalia and Mission Red Planet similar, in terms of mechanics and feel? Which would you recommend and why? Thanks!

I played both and they feel very different.

Libertalia is all about the character cards and how the interact with each other. There are plenty of cards so replayability is not an issue. It is all about out thinking your opponents and play the right character at the right time. Since everyone almost share all the same cards each turn, this is where the interecton comes from.

Mission Red Planet is basically an area control game. You choose roles in order to build up your plan or mess up others plans! The role selection is somewhat the same. The area control aspect of the game is great. If you like the chaos in Cosmic Encounter, you should like the chaos MRP brings to the table.

My favorite is Misson Red Planet. It feels like a more complete game than Libertalia.

I haven't played Mission: Red Planet but it has been on my radar for a long time (difficult to find a copy in NZ).

I bought Libertalia a few months ago and it is a favourite of a number of my gaming groups. It does seem like it is a bit simpler than M:RP, maybe a good one to introduce people to the simultaneous role selection mechanic before throwing them into a slightly more involved game like M:RP
