Description Edit | History

Obcy (Aliens), is a game based on great sf movie "Aliens".
The game takes place in the Weyland-Yutani atmospheric processor. One player takes the role of the Alien Queen and other players play as colonial marines (Vasquez, Hicks, Gorman and Hudson), the civilian Ripley and Bishop the android. The humans collect data discs which they bring to computers in order to learn their mission objectives. Once a pre-determined number of those is completed, the Alien Queen is defeated and the team must escape from the base. Every turn the Alien player spawns a die-roll worth of aliens and tries to stop the humans from succeeding. Players can use equipment like rifles, flame throwers, grenades, explosions and many others to fight with hordes of aliens. They even have access to the APC, if they can fuel it. The mechanic is easy (four page manual). The game bears some resemblance to Space Hulk.
The Box includes:

- gameboard
- 6 character cards
- 7 paper figures
- 72 counters of aliens
- 74 counters of equipment
- 16 black counters
- 1 blue counter
- 20 card with tasks
- fight result table
- legend
- dice
- manual

There was expansion made by fans, called Predator. It allowed playing as a Predator, as a third side of the conflict. Predator attacks both aliens and humans, its goal is to kill efficient number of aliens and/or humans.
