District 9: The Boardgame

District 9: The Board Game is a competitive 2 – 4 player game that lets players relive the sci-fi classic through a whole new perspective. Taking on the role of a faction from the District 9 world, players vie for control of the district and its technological resources by interacting with the local population, iconic characters, and each other.

The game unfolds over the 3 days in which the film’s events take place. Players begin by setting up various district tiles to create a dynamic game board. A variety of different-shaped district tiles allow for the board to be unique each play through. Players then set up their starting tile at the edge of the district, simulating where they have strategically chosen to enter. Using orders to move their units around the board, and cards to augment their abilities, players lead their faction in a bid to salvage the biggest stockpile of alien technology.

As the competition heats up, the unrest in District 9 escalates. Wikus’ actions during the prawn evictions, and the ensuing man-hunt, drive the stakes higher and higher until the climactic finale: when Wikus dons the prawn mech suit for his heroic last stand. The player who can weather the chaos of battle, and salvage the most alien technology, is declared the winner.

    Played an early playtest copy of this, which was the version put up for the first kickstarter. It is, in its current state, a broken mess of a game. I gave feedback and hope Weta really re-engineer the game. Because if it goes out as is, there will be many angry backers when they finally get to play it.
