Check out the They Live: Assault on Cable 54 board game


John Carpenter’s They Live is a favourite of mine. It also has one of the greatest fight scenes of all time. Now there is a board game based on the film, which includes a pair of sunglasses to help you see the truth! It has just hit Kickstarter and has already reached its goal. I love the Kick Ass dice!

They Live: Assault on Cable 54 is a narrative-driven co-operative adventure game for 4-6 players (with an additional 1-3 player ‘blind play mode’ that is also unlockable as a stretch goal).

The action-packed board game will let you explore the sprawling city of LA to build a stash of weapons, allies, and items as you progress towards your ultimate goal; the assault on Cable 54 and the defeat of our unearthly invaders. THEY are the ones in control of the signal, and it’s your mission to take them down!

Of course, it wouldn’t be much of a game if it were that easy…

There are enemies hiding in your midst attempting to sabotage your progress, and even some of your own team may not be who they say they are. As a member of the resistance, it’s your job to weed out the traitors and take them down before it’s too late.

They Live: Assault on Cable 54 is directly inspired by the themes of the movie; it’s rich and poor divide and the battle to control the system. The game involves collecting resources and banking them for use in the final assault, just like the end of the film.

Your role will vary depending on if you’re playing as a Human or an Invader. One will have you attempting to save humanity, the other will have you fighting to maintain your position as their overlords.

The Hoffman Lenses have no need for apps, phones or a computer. Just like the movie, simply put them over your eyes to see the truth!! We’ve worked closely with our production team to ensure that our art and design aesthetic works in a simple, real-world way.

Players can use the lenses to inspect and uncover Invader interference.
