Adrift and powerless, your crippled vessel is bleeding oxygen. You...

A thrilling semi-cooperative game of intrigue and survival in deep space.

Not a bad thing if it can distill the traitor mechanic versus the group survival game into something fun. Dark Moon (I think that was the title) did a decent job because BSG, as cool as it was, was a brutal chore to set up, explain, and play IMHO.

These types of games often need very specific player numbers for the traitor mechanic to work well. The crossroads games were pretty nice as well, so long as everyone understood the need to play mean and selfish if necessary (I've played with folks who would move the robber in catan to as neutral a space as possible to inconvenience no one!).

Any game is another game with the serial number filed off.

Might as well stop making games, folks, it's all been done before and people around here only want to clutch to their old, outdated, clunky shit.

If there's any game that could stand to have its serial numbers filed off, it's BSG. Its original context is completely lost to pop culture, even though it did implement that particular license really well.

That said, the game had a very specific setup that worked (five players, no expansions, people experienced enough to know the rules but not so experienced that everyone has optimized how to win). Outside of those narrow circumstances I think it could get pretty rough.

Thought this would be an official Among Us game, from the thread title. I'm honestly surprised that hasn't hit Kickstarter yet.
