"I am just a sucker for great art and this game delivers!"

Eater of Meeples

“Players are constantly faced with tough decisions. It is incredibly fun to watch players try to sabotage each other and then to laugh when the tables are quickly turned!"

The Treasure Belle


"Players have asymmetric player powers by playing as different species which give a bit more depth to the strategy - taking what's good for you may reveal something amazing for your opponent."


“The theme is interesting and brought to life by nice, characterful art. The background of the game is rooted in real life UFO research, which I think adds a cool extra layer of intrigue and depth to the game."

Dice In The Dark


"This game is one I can see myself having in my purse to teach friends quickly at a game night. Overall I enjoyed the experience!"

Boarding School With Brandi

"Born out of a wholehearted interest in the subject of UFOs that can be seen in its well designed mechanics and fun, yet engaging story."

Tabletop Simulator Blog


"This is definitely a buy for me. This is a game that you could take out to a bar and play. It’s one you could play with your kids. And I haven’t played any similar games in this kind of theme.”

"We had so much fun with it. It’s such a simple game to learn and play. But there are so many options of what and how to play.”

"Beautifully produced box with pretty artwork inside and outside. Plenty of interaction. While the game does have a solo mode, a lot of fun does come from messing with your opponents!"

"Super easy to learn. Great for all ages. Pocket sized box makes for a great travel game."

"I like the system here. It’s not something I’ve seen done before, or at least not as simply and effectively as it’s done here.”

Desks and Dorks

"A fast playing, light card game that, for us at least, suddenly clicked!"
