The Shadow Planet

A sci-fi board game of paranoia, horror and strategy

In strange and remote regions of space, death may not be the worst end…

Agroup of astronauts goes on a rescue mission and lands on a desolate planet to learn the fate of a long-lost scientific vessel. With little over a day to investigate what happened, they discover that the planet itself and the encountered survivors hide horrible secrets, and they have to solve the mystery of The Shadow Planet before everyone there, and everyone in the galaxy,
are doomed!

The Shadow Planet™: The Board Game is a retro sci-fi game, based on the Italian graphic novel by the Blasteroid Bros, and inspired by movie classics, such as "Forbidden Planet", "The Thing", or "Alien". Designed by Gianluca and Giacomo Santopietro, authors of "Letters from Whitechapel", this game is a unique blend of a gripping horror plot and hidden identities with a new approach to the deck-building genre, offering you a great gaming experience and a chance to use a completely different strategy every time you play.

Players have to draw their secret goal and use six different characters to achieve it, deceiving their rivals and controlling the flow of the game through management of different decks. They have to move around to various locations on the planet to gain powerful cards or use special abilities, paying attention to the moves of their opponents, to find out who they really are and what their secret purpose is.

The English edition of Galakta's games is exclusively distributed in the
United States and non-European countries by Ares Games.
