The Thing 1982: The Board Game

Sale price$69.99


THE THING BOARD GAME - The game focuses on the emulation and assimilation properties of the alien, hiding its identity under a veil of fake humanity. The Alien's true objective is to escape from the base, choosing to hide itself and collaborating with humans, or to reveale its true nature, playing ad a monster to openly assimilate all the team members. Humans must try to survive, maintaining outpost 31 and choosing the best way to escape among the three available, but most important they have to test the other team members to reveal the alien and find who is still human. The road to victory is truly hard, but not impossible. Be careful though! The parnoia of not knowing who you really have on your side may cloud your decisions!
•The Thing - The Boardgame is a "hidden role" game, in which one player is initially the Thing and the other players are humans. The purpose of the Thing is to infect others, to prevent the survivors from escaping from the base (which can happen in three different ways), or to try to escape with them by behaving as a human.
•In addition to these elements, players also have to manage Outpost 31. The game board shows the same rooms as seen in the film, and each of these rooms allows players to perform a different action. Human players have to feed themselves and keep the boiler and the generator on to avoid being in the cold and dark.
•The Thing will try to sabotage these places to make life difficult for the humans... or not, trying to camouflage itself among the humans and infect them when the perfect opportunity presents itself.
•You must cooperate to survive – but who is really on your side? And if you reveal The Thing – are you ready to fight it? The road to victory is truly hard, but not impossible. Be careful though!
•1-8 Players | Ages 13+ | 60+ Minutes Playing Time
