Deep in the far reaches of space lies The Pit. It’s an alien laboratory of mythic proportions where scientific experiments are carried out (mostly the really nasty kind of stuff that you can only do when far out in space). It is, however, into this nightmare landscape that you and your party members are headed. The Pit: The Board Game brings the Sword of the Stars: The Pit video game to your tabletops. The project is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
The Pit: The Board Game is a cooperative science fiction dungeon-crawler for 1-4 players. Based on the popular video game, this board game transports the iconic characters, monsters, weapons and items from the original Sword of the Stars: The Pit to your tabletop.
On the distant world of Arbuda IV lies THE PIT – a diabolical alien super-laboratory where the most insane scientific experiments in the galaxy are conducted.
Can you and your friends survive The Pit’s appalling armories and cruel cafeterias? Defeat its fiendish flunkies and endure its eerie elevator music? Only the best and bravest teams will make it to the bottom!
The campaign is about 2/3 of the way to their funding goal with still 17 days left to go.
