Lift Off! Get Me Off This Planet! is a fast-paced, "gateway" game where you use the moon and spacecrafts to get your Aliens off the planet before it explodes!
The game has a casual space theme and never takes itself too seriously. Lift Off! Get Me Off This Planet! is easy to learn, fast-paced game, where everyone feels engaged and "in it" until someone has won or the planet explodes!
The objective of Lift Off! Get Me Off This Planet! is to be the first player to get their Aliens off the planet using resource cards, action cards, and phases of the moon to escape. If the planet explodes before everyone escapes, the player with the most saved Aliens wins.
What’s special about Lift Off! Get me off this Planet is that lift off points (space vehicles) are all different and often require multiple players to work together to take off. For example, a rocket ship takes a lot of resources and can carry 6 aliens from various players. This creates a great dynamic where initially all players are working together to get, say, the first half of their aliens off the planet, but once it starts thinning people become more competitive and tricky about things using action cards to manipulate the moon, change the board, create tornadoes, etc.
