Survive: Space Attack! is a reimagining of the best-selling game, Survive: Escape From Atlantis! The redesign of this classic game has been done by Brian, Sydney, and Geoff Engelstein, who have previously designed Space Cadets and Space Cadets: Dice Duel, plus expansions for each of these games, for Stronghold Games. 
In Survive: Space Attack!, players are escaping from a space station as it comes under attack by aliens. While Survive: Space Attack! utilizes similar base mechanics to the original Survive! game designed by Julian Courtland-Smith, additional features of the new game include:
  • Double-sided Game Board: enables a variety of starting setups each with its own challenges.
  • New Fighter Ships: gives players the ability to capture and redeploy alien creatures.
  • Laser Turrets: a new weapon system to defend the space station against the aliens.
  • New Tile Abilities: new powers that are combinable, plus four different tile thicknesses for a 3-D look.
  • New Alien Creature Powers: alien creatures may evolve to become even more powerful.
Survive: Space Attack! – The Crew Strikes Back! is a mini-expansion for the new Survive: Space Attack!.  This mini-expansion will introduce crew members of the space station, each with their own unique power, which will help you escape from the besieged space station. This mini-expansion will contain 20 crew cards. Survive: Space Attack! – 5-6 Player is another mini-expansion for the new Survive: Space Attack!. This mini-expansion will enable players to enjoy the new game with up to 6 players. This mini-expansion will contain 20 new Spaceman tokens.
Survive: Dolphins & Squids & 5-6 Players…Oh My! is an expansion for the original game Survive: Escape From Atlantis!. This expansion contains the components and gameplay modules that have been available previously in three separate mini-expansions.  Each of these modules can be added separately into the play of the original Survive: Escape From Atlantis! or they can all be combined into one big game:
  • Dolphins & Dive Dice: adds the chaos of ‘Dive Dice’, but also the helpful Dolphins to ward off creatures.
  • The Giant Squid: adds the Giant Squid creature, which can attack the Explorers on land or in boats.
  • 5-6 Players: enables players to enjoy the original game with up to 6 players.
