XenoShyft is a game for 1-4 players, with each player controlling one of the Divisions of the NorTec Military: The Science Labs, Med Bay, Armory, Weapon’s Research, Barracks, and Command Center. Each of these divisions represents one part of the overall NorTec Base, and it is your job as commander of these Divisions to protect the base against the onslaught of the alien “Hive“ while its field operations are completed.
You and your teammates will have to work together to survive the continuous onslaught of powerful alien threats and horrors- the goal of the mission is not to wipe out these threats, it is merely to outlast them! Survive through nine rounds of combat with these horrors and the base will have succeeded in its mission, and you and your allies will have survived to fight another day!
XenoShyft combines classic deckbuilding and resource management with fact paced combat and unique “base defense” elements- As the game progresses each player will build up their deck of Troops, Equipment, and Item cards, which they will in turn use to defend their base against incoming enemies in fast-paced and deadly combat.
It is up to the players to work together in order to outlast the horrors awaiting them by coordinating strategy, utilizing the strengths of their unique divisions, and organizing defense tactics to insure no player is caught off guard by surprise attacks.
XenoShyft is a game of tactical decisions and horror – and survival is never guaranteed.
