Our group has been playing this game for over a year now. I have never played a game that has so many ways to kill you. Alien monsters, fire, infection, ship damage, all of these combine to kill you before completing your goals of surviving. there is a turn tracker that counts down to 0. The tension when its almost there and trying to get the ship working or get to the escape pod without being smeared across the walls as the ship goes to light speed…well oh I died again. Detailed miniatures this is a must have. Can even play solo! I have gloomhaven still sitting on the shelf as we cant put this one down.
