For 40 years, Space Invaders has entertained kids (and adults) for hours on end. Whether pumping quarters into an arcade console or reliving past glory on a more recent gaming platform, the game is so simple… yet so much fun. That’s the sentiment that the makers of the Space Invaders Board Game are bringing to their creation. With loving respect, this board game captures that familiar and classic immersion and visual experience.
The board game is for 2-4 players and revolves around strategic deck building. Players move their cannons across the game board, protecting the moon base from attack. Each turn features four phases: research, action, energy transformation, and cleanup. Destroying a space invader earns a player one of 242 cards representing actions, energy, and tech. While there’s a shared task in defending the base, players are also competing against each other for the higher score.
