IDW Games to release X-Files: Conspiracy Theory in March

The X-Files was a long running sci-fi style TV show about Agents Mulder and Scully investigating outlandish claims that were classified as X-files.  In the show they often found the outlandish claims were in fact true, but when reporting to their superiors, Scully would take the side of science while Mulder would always tell the truth, no matter how crazy it was.

In the game X-Files: Conspiracy Theory – Everything is Connected, you will play as Mulder as you try to explain the crazy things to your superiors with the evidence you collected.  On a player’s turn they will pull a prompt card from the deck, and with that prompt and the different evidence cards in your hand, try to weave together a story that the rest of the players will believe.  The rest of the players will be playing their superiors and will vote, not according to if they believe the story or not, but according to how they think everyone else will vote.  That’s because “the only thing worse than being an outlier is being a nut-case like Fox Mulder“.

Look for this game to arrive on store shelves in the later half of March, and then ask yourself, do you believe?

I'm an engineer manager by day, board game entusiast by night. I will play most anything once but I love adventure style games and cooperative games, or just playing games with my wife. Games like the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, TIME Stories, and 7th Continent really hit on all those marks for me and I love discovering new gems.
