We have so many excellent game options to play that some games get brought along week after week, without making it to the table.
X-Com has been one of these, until last night.
5 of us (it’s 4 players max so two of us shared the Scientist role) played the tutorial (which we failed) and then an easy Infiltration mission and pulled off a win.
The board has specific areas for each player role with the middle showing the status of continents and aliens etc.
Best thing about this game
There is quite a bit of tension through the game, and since it is a co-op and we had a good team of experienced board gamers, it went fairly well. When we were able to get some synergies going between roles, that was great.
Worst thing about this game
I really had little idea what the other players were doing, since each role is quite different
Definitely worth another play, but I don’t know if I’ll ever love it.
