This is the upgrade kit for those who own the original Lift Off! Get me off this Planet!
Playing Time: 30-45 Min
Get aliens off the planet before it explodes using crazy space vehicles!
It’s been a fun existence, but someone tripped over a coolant cord in the core and the planet you’ve called home for eons is going to explode. Looks like you are going to have to use your wits and every means at your disposal to escape!
The objective of Lift Off! Get Me Off This Planet! is to be the first player to get your Aliens off the planet using resource cards, action cards, and phases of the moon to escape. If the planet explodes before everyone escapes, the player with the most saved Aliens wins.
What’s special about Lift Off! Get me off this Planet is that lift off points (space vehicles) are all different and often require multiple players to work together to take off. For example, a rocket ship takes a lot of resources and can carry 6 aliens from various players. This creates a great dynamic where initially all players are working together to get, say, the first half of their aliens off the planet, but once it starts thinning people become more competitive and tricky about things using action cards to manipulate the moon, change the board, create tornadoes, etc.
- Use resources, actions, and moon phases to escape
