Az Escape From Mars egy nagyszerű társasjáték, 1 - 4 játékos részére, az átlagos játékidő hosszabb, akár 1 - 2 óra is lehet. A társast, 14 éves kortól ajánljuk kipróbálni. Kooperatív jellegű, a játékmenet erősen épít a szövetségek, a pakli tervezés, a kockadobás és az áruló mechanizmusokra.
You are not alone...
Escape from Mars is a single player hidden traitor game.
An alien virus has infected the crew of ‘Mars One’, the first off world colony. Strange insect like creature swarm the base and more crew are taken ill. Players must discover and quarantine the alien host, living inside one of the crew, they must also gather alien samples then, via the communication room, they can request rescue. It’s a race against time as more crew become infected, more aliens are drawn to the colony until eventually the alpha alien will arrive and wreak havoc on the colony and its crew.
The game is player over a set number of rounds (which also determined the difficulty), a crew marker counts down the rounds and at the other end of the round tracker an Alien marker moves in the opposite direction, if their markers ever meet, the Alpha Alien will arrive and the ‘Host’ crew member will be devoured and spawn another Alpha Alien.
Players start off with a limited number of active crew, some must be rescued, other will be distrustful and need convincing to join. Player must scour the ship looking for clues as to the identity of the Aline Host, looking for blood samples and crew logs, players also need to gather alien samples for HQ. The colony is full of weapon, tools, events, and more. Players risk crew when venturing out in colony as the longer they search, the more exposure to the alien virus they risk. The game is about managing and taking risks, use your crew wisely as they have different strengths and weaknesses.
The game ends and the players win, when they have discovered the Alien Host, quarantined them, found and reported the Alien samples, all go into the airlock and the rescue ship arrives.
The player loose if no one makes it out alive, and this can happen in many ways...
