The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 was a hot game for a while. Released by Mondo, the game was popular, selling out and commanding high prices in the aftermarket. A lack of reprints, and really any news, of the game, was head-scratching, as the game was a hit and featured a lot of buzz from its Gen Con debut years back. Now, Mondo and The OP have announced that The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 is back and available for pre-order!
In the game, you relive the 1982 classic John Carpenter horror movie, The Thing, with this social deduction, hidden identity tabletop board game.
To win the game, players must complete missions, locate and identify the imitations, and escape the Outpost. Your ability to uncover the truth is critical to discover the imitations and win the game.
Play as 1 of 12 iconic characters (and as either a human or an imitation) from the movie, such as MacReady, Palmer, and Blair. The game is for 4 to 8 players and one we highly recommend.
Designed by The OP with art by Phantom City Creative, The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 retails for $60 and is expected to ship in November 2021.
