The Captain Is Dead is a cooperative board game for 2-7 players from AEG. The game is set in the typical sci-fi setting where the Captain of the ship has perished. It's the players job as a team to repair the spaceship while fending off the attacks of evil aliens.
Here is what AEG says about the game:
"It’s the last 10 minutes of your favorite sci-fi TV show…"
"Except that this time things have gone seriously wrong and The Captain Is Dead!"
"The Captain is Dead is a frantic and fun cooperative board game that puts you and your friends in the role of crew members on a besieged starship. You must work together to repair critical systems and fend off hostile aliens, or you will share the captain’s fate. From the chief engineer, weapons officer, and visiting admiral, all the way down to the ensign and the ship’s janitor, you must combine your unique talents to avoid utter annihilation in the cold depths of space!"
The game is set to be released this month so keep an eye out at your local game store!
