The Year of New Editions rolls along. Everything that's old is being made new again over at Privateer Press. This time around, it's Level 7 Omega Protocol. If you want to send those aliens back to where they came from, or maybe prefer to take over the world, it's the game for you. The Kickstarter for this new edition is running now.
Everything that's old is new again. With Privateer Press having successfully relaunched their Monsterpocalypse game, they are looking to other titles that may have fallen away that they can bring into this Year of New Editions. In this case, it's part of their Level 7 family, specifically Omega Protocol. The game will be coming to Kickstarter in just a week.
You know, we really should be trying to reduce the amount of hate and prejudice that is in the world today. Though, I guess when we're talking about space aliens invading the Earth, looking to (as Bender would often put it) kill all the humans, maybe being against them is a good thing. Either way, Level 7 : Extreme Prejudice is now available.
Privateer Press is giving you a further look inside the universe of Level 7. They have a new novel coming out that's titled Level 7: The Judas Protocol and you can get yourself one as soon as it's released by getting in on the pre-order. "But Polar Bear. I didn't think you covered new novels coming out for a system." I don't, really, but that's not where the story ends. There's specifically gaming-related items afoot as well.
Privateer Press is getting into the holiday season with their Holiday Sale happening now. If you want any Privateer products, or have been wanting to try out their various game systems, they've got quite a lot of bundle deals going on.
I have A Thing for the end of the world. Apocalypse books and zombie movies are absolutely my cup of tea. As a philosopher once said, “Some people just like to watch the world burn.” I’m one of them, I guess. Ask me sometime about my scars.
One thing I don’t have A Thing for is so-called “Ameritrash” board games, with lots of bits and pieces and rulebooks that take several hours to read. I like my games with cubes, and lots of ‘em or rows of nice orderly meeples and clearly-labelled spaces. That’s my kind of game.
So to say I went into Level 7: Invasion confused is putting it lightly. A bits-and-pieces game where we’re fighting to save the world against an alien invasion? Okay, I thought, let’s watch this world burn.
What lurks in the box? Why does the new game from Privateer Press have such a long and unwieldy name? At least one of these questions will be answered …
Here at the EOG much alien-killing fun is being had with Level 7 , with its new twist on the old dungeoncrawl formula. A review is in the works and a foam core box insert has already been designed, and a miniature-painting tutorial is being contemplated … but in the meantime, feast your peepers on all the goodies you get as I joyfully unbox the game!
Omega Protocol has been initiated... Can Play Unplugged's Damian Mastrangelo clean up the mess created by those Subterra Bravo scientists in Privateer Press' latest addition to the Level 7 series? Check out his review of Level 7 !
LEVEL 7 picks up right where LEVEL 7 left off. The Subterra Bravo facility has been thrown into chaos through the players actions in , and now the government has sent in a top-secret, highly-trained special forces unit to shut down the facility and eliminate everything remaining in the base.
In , one player takes on the role of the Overseer while two to five other players take on the role of the elite Special Ops team. The Overseer’s role in the game is to control all of the alien denizens and challenges the players face throughout the game. The players are trying to achieve specific scenario-based objectives by exploring a map that’s laid out at the start and fighting off the hordes of aliens that the Overseer sends their way.
After working up an appetite clambering through the ductwork of Subterra Bravo in Level 7 , it's time to enact a little revenge on the little grey sods who've made your life heck. Grab your assault rifle and a few buddies - it's time to chew butt and kick bubblegum.
Level 7 is the next chapter in Privateer Press' Level 7 series. Releasing this month, the new game sends the players back into Subterra Bravo with the members of Disco Team, a squad of five specialist commandos with a mandate to enact a little extreme prejudice.
After unboxing and getting some table time in, the Lost Hemisphere lads have some words to share and a bunch of pictures to show you...

Board to Death posted up video review they've made of Privateer Press' Level 7 board game.
From the review:
You are a captive of Subterra Bravo, imprisoned in the facility’s deepest laboratory, the hall of nightmares known as LEVEL 7. Your singular goal is to escape, but to do that you will have to evade the human and inhuman denizens of this subterranean labyrinth before the entire base is locked down, sealing you in for the rest of your short, tormented life. Will you work together with your fellow prisoners to endure Subterra Bravo’s endless perils, or will you use them to secure your own escape? Ultimately, your chances of survival will depend on how well you manage your greatest weapon, which is also your greatest threat: fear itself.
LEVEL 7 is a semi-cooperative, story-driven survival-horror board game for 1–4 players with nerves of steel and a willingness to confront the impossible.
Level 7 from Privateer Press gets their chance to be reviewed by Play Board Games. What'd they think of it? Go find out.
From the review:
Level 7 Escape is a semi-cooperative game with a sci-fi horror theme. You must escape a military facility where you have been captive. But it won’t be easy as there are guards and aliens looking to stop you.
