Stay sharp: THEY are out there, and you only have 36 hours to acquire the tools to take them down! Iconiq Studios is currently crowdfunding a tabletop game based on the cult classic movie They Live. The campaign is nearly over, but there’s still time.
The main game in They Live: Assault On Cable 54 is for four to six players. Before the game begins, you must decide if you’re one of the humans or one of the invaders…and keep that decision to yourself. If you’re a Human, you’re on the lookout for any evidence of Invaders. You’ll also collect weapons and items that could be useful during confrontations with proven Invaders.
But as an Invader, your mission is to put on the guise of a Human and sabotage the resistance any way you can. If you discover useful weapons or items, your job is to sabotage them. You must also cast doubt on innocents and cast them as Invaders instead of you. You can only pull this off, of course, for as long as you don’t get caught.
The coolest thing about They Live: Assault On Cable 54 is that you get a pair of glasses that really work. When you view the cards on the table with the Hoffman Lenses, messages like “OBEY” and “CONSUME” will appear on some of them. You will also get the chance to use the glasses during PVP encounters to determine if another so-called “human” is really one of us. You are not allowed to use the glasses all the time, however.
You can get a copy of They Live: Assault On Cable 54 for a $60 pledge, which gets you one pair of Hoffman Lenses, 6 dice and all stretch goals. Raise the pledge to $70 and you’ll get an extra pair of glasses and six more dice, plus an exclusive backer-only slipcover for the box. Higher tiers include items like a set of Game Art Prints and a T-shirt.
The crowdfunding campaign for They Live: Assault On Cable 54 will only last until April 30 at 8 AM Pacific. Make your pledge today by heading to this page.
