This is the Deluxe Edition of the game Who Goes There? This edition combines the Basic Edition and two expansions, (“Blair and Clark” and “Van Wall and Norris”), which enables gameplay with more characters available. Comes with additional game contents listed below.
It is a cooperative medium complexity game of growing paranoia.
Everyone plays as an uninfected human at the start of the game that tries not to become infected and taken over by the alien.
The game consists of three phases of six rounds, with the difficulty rising at each phase.
The growing paranoia is really what makes this game as cool as it is. You can’t win the game alone. You have to have help from someone at every stage. Supplies are needed, bunk mates have to be (carefully) chosen, things have to be built, characters have to be developed, and none of this can take place without getting help from your fellow players. But once those vulnerable cards start moving, every time you interact with another player you are taking a chance of infection. You will be leery of taking anything from anyone.
The goal of each player, is to survive the challenges that come along, and make it onto the escape helicopter with enough points to get it off the ground.
For more available characters and additional game contents, see the Deluxe Edition or the two expansions, “Blair and Clark” and “Van Wall and Norris”.
