There Will Be Games

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

Adrift and powerless, your crippled vessel is bleeding oxygen. You must work together to restore power before the air runs out… but hidden among you, as loyal friends and crew members, are impostors who continue to sabotage the ship. Their only goal is to avoid detection and kill the crew, by force or by asphyxiation.

Can you identify them in time and eliminate the threat? Or will succumb to The Menace Among Us?

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!).
