Osprey Games Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space: Ultimate Edition,Medium
About this deal
For a hidden identity game, Escape From The Aliens In Outer Space has an immersion factor that ranks up there with Battlestar Galactica.
As soon as the game starts, everybody’s picking their way through the darkness towards the escape pods. The map book is black and white, but I wish the dangerous sector card icons were colored for easier identification. If you like game that incorporate imaginative play, you’ll want to have Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space in your collection. An alien may be the lurking alien who can choose to directly attack the sector they are in instead of moving. Nobody reveals the card they’ve drawn, so nobody else knows if you’re telling the truth or lying about where the noise came from, only that there WAS a noise.Each player's identity and position is kept secret: you will need to interpret the movements and behaviours of the other players to learn where, and what, they really are. Indicatively yes, if we find out it is impossible for us to ship the game where you live, we will issue you a refund.
The main reason I’ve found is, for all the game’s shooting and bluffing and edge-of-your-seat narrow escapes, a game turn is fairly boring inherently.
For example, a human player may be the medic, and they may force another player to reveal their identity once during the game, of course, they themselves must reveal their identity to do this. If I fill a box with rubber chickens and fake vomit, it would be worth more than this game, and a lot more fun (assuming you have any sense of humor whatsoever). Chris enjoys the simple things in life, like teaching his wife the newest review game, looking up Ketogenic recipes, and playing 10 hour long indie games on Steam. There are only five of these cards, but one of them indicates that the escape pod has malfunctioned, meaning visions of hurtling toward Tatooine with C3PO and R2D2 quickly fade.
