LIVE-ACTION Starship Deathtrap

On a doomed world on the brink of destruction, a handful of beings prepare for their final moments of life. The ground trembles and shakes. Fire blazes all around. Only moments left before the planets’ complete destruction. But wait! What’s that in the distance? Is that an old spaceship? It looks like it was junked. Do you think it can fly?  We’re going to die anyway. What do we have to lose?

Starship Deathtrap is a cooperative game for 1 to 5 players. The crew will need to make repairs, survive fires, viruses, and aliens all while fighting against the clock to keep the ship together until they can reach their destination.

In this live-action edition, players will walk around the oversized board as if they were the actual crew.
