“It’s party season throughout the galaxy, and everyone is hosting a spectacular celebration! But who will be crowned Intergalactic Party Captain…. Is it you? Invite Aliens to your party, just don’t forget to be a good host for your guests and give each of them the attention they deserve. If an Alien feels neglected, they will leave for another party in the galaxy. Will your party be a celestial success, or will you find yourself alone with the punch bowl?” [source]
UFO a Go-Go is a game about following hilarious rules and calling out your friends when they slip up. All the players are hosting their own parties and inviting Aliens to join in. Hosts need to give each guest the attention they deserve, or they’ll leave the party and join someone else’s in another part of the galaxy.
Hosts take turns drawing cards from a central deck which contain four types of cards. Drawing an Alien Card is ideal as they’ll join the host’s party but adding the alien to the party also adds a rule which the host must follow. Aliens can be swopped, stolen, or lured away. VIP Cards represent more impressive guests which hosts compete for, while Galactic Event Cards can mess up the best laid plans. Finally, Party Favors are “take that” cards which hosts force upon other hosts to cause trouble and confusion. The goal of the game is to reach the winning party point value and be declared the Intergalactic Party Captain.

The UFO a Go-Go Kickstarter campaign will run until Thursday, November 8th 2018 and the estimated delivery date is June of 2018. The project is currently at 14% of its funding goal.
