Tuesday, Mar 18th, 2014
San Diego, CA (March 18, 2014) - This summer, fans
of The X-Files will have a brand-new way to
search for the truth, with the release of a brand-new big box
board game! Players will get the chance to take on the role of
Mulder, Scully, and the X-Files team as they
work to uncover global conspiracies and threats while going up
against various members of the Syndicate.
"To me, there's no more exciting title than The X-Files," says IDW Director of New Business, Jerry Bennington. "Who wouldn't want the chance to play as the wise cracking Fox Mulder or the incredibly intelligent Dana Scully? And what show created more classic villains than The X-Files? I still remember the first time I laid eyes on Flukeman, now we'll give fans the chance to lose sleep all over again!"
The X-Files board game will focus heavily on material from the first three seasons of the television series, giving fans a chance to start from the beginning of the phenomenon. IDW Games has enlisted top-notch designer, Kevin Wilson (Arkham Horror, Descent, Civilization) to bring The X-Files to the strategy board game community. Acclaimed gallery and comic book artist, menton3 (Memory Collectors, The X-Files: Season 10) brings his talents to the board gaming world by providing art direction for this project as well as the stunning box art. Designed for a playtime of between sixty and ninety minutes, two to five players will face off against one friend who will control the Smoking Man and his nefarious network.
IDW Games will release The X-Files game in July with a suggested retail price of $59.99. Get ready to find the truth on your tabletop!
