There has been a murder aboard our Starcrusader Cosmica! Everyone is a suspect and only the killer knows who he/she is. To make matters worse, there are also evil Biomechs (evil machines trying to take over the human race) disguised as humans among us! Can we save the human race?
This role playing game has been designed to be played with friends over zoom at the comfort of your own home. Once you purchase the package (chose the package that suits your party number), the story files will be emailed to you. A team leader can assigned the characters to the players randomly. The players will then have to study their character and what their motives are prior to the game. On game day, your objective is to achieve as many goals as you can from the strategy sheet. The game can be played with the scoring system or just for fun.
It was a lot of fun to play dress up for this game. Setting up a galaxy-like zoom background definitely helped set the vibe. We really enjoyed coming up with different strategies to not blow up our covers and missions. It was fun to form alliances but be careful who you chose! The only suggestion we probably have to make the game better would be to make the reading materials shorter and to bullet point the necessary missions. Perhaps a video intro of the story would be great to set the mood of the game. There was a lot of reading and the rules did get confusing at some point. It was great we had the creator of the game with us to clarify some questions but if the players were playing alone, its best these questions can be clarified. We felt that it took away from the fun when we had to go back to the paperwork constantly to find out what we had to do and what information we had. It was hard to remember everything prior to the game.
As the sole survivor of the human race, I am glad to report that I'll be taking on the president role. I will continue to serve for us to the best of my ability and take this Starcrusader to "infinity and beyond"!
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
