Invasion From Outer Space: The Martian Game

Invasion From Outer Space, The Martian Game is a fast-paced game of fiendish Martians, Big Top Heroes, and SciFi Movie Action. Players take on the role of either the Carnival Heroes, using their special talents and working together to fight off the Martian Invasion; or as the invaders themselves, waves of Martian Soldiers and Flying Saucers, blasting Humans with Ray Guns and unleashing their vile alien technologies upon the Earth.

Featuring a modular game board, eight Carnival Heroes to choose from (such as the Fire Breather, Strongman, or Jo Jo, the dancing Bear), an army of Martians to start the invasion (including Martian Champions such as the dreaded Zard Beast), and several different Scenarios to play that drastically change the game; Invasion From Outer Space is designed to create a cinematic feel as the story and game unfolds.
Also, as Invasion From Outer Space is built using the Last Night on Earth game engine, the two games are fully compatible. With ease, players can now have their Martians invade the small town of Woodinvale, Zombies attack the Carnival, or even play a massive game with up to three independent factions (Heroes, Zombies, and Martians). The possibilities are endless.
So drop those roasted peanuts, strap on your jumpsuit, and step into the spotlight...the Martians are Coming and the Invasion From Outer Space has begun!

  • As with all Flying Frog games, it is yet another 1980's style romp game. All of them feel like the last fight of an RPG - minus the story and interesting saga leading up to it. Frog games sit somehow between Steve Jackson and Fantasy Flight - unable to reach to really solid designs, but still managing a passable bit of silly fun without the terrible design of Jackson. This one I found better than Last Night on Earth, but only marginally. I like the theme better for one. And it seems like the Martian player(s) has much more to do. Still, the game lingers too long for me and easily becomes a slog. It is designed to let dice rolls work against both enjoyment and yet encourage duration. A great roll makes for a memorable moment, but a sequence of lousy rolls makes you long to be playing something else. Over all, one of the better Frog games in my estimation, but not something I find too compelling.
  • Do not run, we are your friends! I LOVE this game... its a lot of fun and the subject matter is great!
  • The first couple of games did not go so well... I hope it does not fail me a third time. :|

Thanks for the welcome!

1. Found while using BoardGamePrices.com

2. Have been playing games since sitting on my parents' laps as a child helping them play Euchre, but got more into the hobby around 2009-2010.

3. Tough choices there... I'd have to say #Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game, #Invasion From Outer Space: The Martian Game, and #Terraforming Mars, but #Android Board Game gets an honorable mention.
