Deep space. It's not a good place for your ship to break down. Unfortunately, that's just what's happened. And not only are you floating listlessly, but there's a leak and air is rapidly leaving the ship. It's a race to try and repair the ship and get going again. However, there's someone in the crew that is happy that the ship is slowly dying, along with the crew. Will the others be able to figure it out in time, or are they doomed? That's the story behind The Menace Among Us, a new semi-cooperative game from Smirk and Dagger that's available now.
From the website:
A thrilling semi-cooperative game of intrigue and survival in deep space. Adrift and powerless, your crippled vessel is bleeding oxygen. You must work together to restore power before the air runs out… but hidden among you, masquerading as loyal friends and crewmembers, are imposters who continue to sabotage the ship. Their only goal is to avoid detection and kill the crew, by force or by asphyxiation. Can you identify them in time and eliminate the threat? Or will succumb to The Menace Among Us?
A 40 to 60-minute, asymmetrical card game for
4-8 players, which features custom, shuffle-built, personal decks based on your Agenda and choice of Character.
Over 300 cards including 16 unique Characters and 10 Agendas.
A hidden agenda game that is far more focused
on "how well you play" vs the meta-game of "how well you roleplay your innocence," resulting in a meatier, strategic game.
So sling your laser pistol and don’t trust anyone. They may be The Menace Among Us.
