Did you know that Space Invaders is already 40 years old? To celebrate, a board game version is coming out and could soon invade your living room tables!
In SPACE INVADERS – THE BOARD GAME, 2-4 players defend their moon base against the SPACE INVADERS by moving their cannons across the game board in order to gather intelligence about the enemy above them. Destroying SPACE INVADERS provides powerful cards that are then added to the players’ hands. Gathered intel may be used for targeted research to further enhance the player deck capabilities. The game is driven by a total of 242 Action Cards, energy cards and researchable technologies.
While the invaders are the shared enemy, SPACE INVADERS – THE BOARD GAME is a competitive game of survival. Like in the original arcade game, each player ultimately fights for their own HI-SCORE.
As I’m writing this, the crowdfunding campaign has been up for just a few hours and has already raised over $53,000 on an initial funding goal of $45,000.
