So you’ll have to act quickly, to collect the evidence before they disappear. After you have all the evidence, you’ll complete the final puzzle. Also against the clock!

Legendary Encounters: Alien

If you’re a fan of the Alien saga, this is a game you can’t ignore, because it has the ability to reflect the atmosphere of these films amazingly and convey the feeling of tension and anguish experienced by these movies. It has 4 scenarios, based on the 4 parts of the saga.

It’s a difficult game, where cooperation is fundamental.
The playing cards can be joined together, forming decks, to create more effective action combos.
There is the elimination of players, not all of them will reach the end, which is logical when it comes to dealing with the most hostile kind out there.

If you receive a “face-hugging” card, and you don’t get rid of the repulsive bug, you will be impregnated, and if later, while still impregnated, you receive a “chest-bursting” card, you will end up dead.

Players: 1-5

Duration: 90 min
