Hi everyone
Im really disappointed in this game , I was so excited when I first bought it

But this game is not working for me that much

For example u can always lie about the sector u in !! Whether its a dangerous one or not

When u draw a dangerous card u can also lie if its red or green cuz they will be face down during the game And even if u got red and announced your sector !! U could lie and anounce any other sector

U can also lie if an alien attacked u !! U could say none is here but u r actually there !

Im thinkin of letting my group swear not to lie or cheat during the game lol 😂 seriously the game looked cool and everything but as the subject says .. and thats really sad !!

If anyone has an idea or a solution or a suggestion or if im wrong please tell me

Thx alot

Yeah, I felt the same. It's to easy to cheat in this game.
If your group only has honest players it's fine. However, if you happen to have "sneaky" players it won't work...

However, when everyone is honest it's a nice game

Possible, but no great solution:
Have the first eliminated player check the veracity of the players answers.

Depending on how you do this, it might make the game very slow though

But the easiest solution is to make things clear from the very start ...

This is a gd solution but when humans are eliminated they are still in the game as aliens and in this particular game aliens are hard to kill lol

But another solution is to let one of the players only monitoring the game

But still everyone wsnna play !! So i ll just ask them to be honest otherways the game will be ruined

Man, sometimes I think my friends are douchebags, but they won't lie to win a board game. Yeesh. Stop playing with those people.

What's the point of rules?

If you cheat or lie, or simply accidentally read your map wrong, you will ruin the game. So establish that to everyone, that you must truthfully tell your location, and you must be accurate in your own logging of your own location. If someone is saying something incorrect, it throws off everyone. It's not very difficult, just make sure everyone is aware of that before playing.

Of course it's possible. Each player keeps track of their moves on the map and with a separate list of where they moved. If you suspect cheating you can ask to see their map after the game and see if there are any impossible moves. In our games, both with this game and other hidden movement games we all show what we did so we know what was happening "behinds the scenes"as it were and to see what strategies were being used.

Yep, this is the entire reason for the top half of the map book.

Players coud mark in the lower map their noise anouncements in sequence (1, 2, 3,...) and keep the noise cards they draw in a personal discard pile (in order). This way it is extremely easy to check if there were mistakes or attempts to cheat.
