Description
 

In the year 2288, off-world mining is now controlled by a few mega-corporations. It is no longer just people or nations subject to exploitation, but entire planets and moons. As the CEO of one of these mega-corporations, in Charon, Inc., you will vie against CEOs of other corporations as you exploit the planet's resources and colonize Charon, the largest moon of the dwarf planet Pluto. You will stake claims to the various mining regions of Charon and acquire resources for building facilities. In addition, you will use special actions (fair and unfair) to gain advantages over other CEOs and build your empire to achieve victory in this fast-paced game of planetary domination!

4 of 5 s Pluto a planet, and do meeples have souls? June 19, 2012
Reviewer: EndersGame from BGG  
In this game, players assume the role of CEOs of space-age mining corporations colonizing and mining one of Pluto's moons, Charon. Lay claim to the various mining regions of the moon, utilize resources you collect, and construct buildings that will earn you victory points to win.

The components are quite nice, and there's some interesting area control mechanics, and a choice of special abilities to compete for each round. The heart of the game is about placing flags to stake your claim in areas on Charon, which will get you the gems needed to complete various point-scoring building cards. The theme is arguably pasted on, but using flags for the claim-staking area control mechanic gives the game a certain charm.

Charon Inc is not for the AP-prone, and won't suit everyone's taste, but there are going to be gamers who really enjoy this style of game. Also be aware that the game feels quite different depending on the number of players (2-5).
