Space Alert!

Team Hypercube has a look at a wonderful cooperative board game called , that sees you playing as the crew of an explorer vessel travelling through space.

The game plays in real time and uses a CD (or iphone/android app) to control the pace. You have decks of cards that represent threats and a game board that represents the ship you are on and the crew and systems. The goal is to survive while the ship runs scans of the system before it jumps away. It is chaotic fun.
