The Thing - The Board Game, the board game inspired by the 1982 cult movie.

The Thing - The Board Game is a ‘hidden role’ game played over a series of rounds, mixing different mechanics and an engaging characters depth to bring to the tabletop a tense, cinematic experience. The base rules are geared toward games with 4 to 8 players, but the game can be played in less than 4 people using the 1-3 players rules included in the box. The base gam will release alongside the expansion Norwegian Outpost, that throws players in the events of the 2011 movie that happened at Thule Station, the Norwegian station where it all began, and three acccessories: Human, Alien and Norwegian Miniatures Sets.

Designed by Andrea Crespi and Giuseppe Cicero, and created and produced by Pendragon Game Studio, the game has its English edition published and distributed by Ares Games. For more information and images, visit the The Thing - The Board Game section.
