Specimen! board game update
If you’ve been following the goings-on at Toxic Bag, you know we’ve been developing a new board game called “Space Monster.” Well…it WAS called “Space Monster.” That was a working title, and always felt a little temporary. We’ve now settled on the new name “Specimen.” Same game, cooler and more serious title. We’re still taking pre-orders in hopes of being able to produce the game, and we’re still running demos at conventions to get the word out (our next appearance will be at Capricon in February).
Deep Space – Echo Quadrant 3H-8 – The fully loaded commercial freighter TCS Brown, its seven-member crew in suspended animation, is making the return run to Earth. In the cargo hold lies Dr. Viktor, also in suspended animation, and the mysterious specimen containers that came on board with him.
Awoken from their slumber to repair the damage caused by a meteor collision, the crew discover to their horror that Dr. Viktor has been killed and one of the mysterious specimens has been let loose as a result of the damage…and it is a life form that will stop at nothing to survive. The seven astronauts have only the tools and resources onboard to subdue and kill an organism never before encountered–an organism that evolves quickly into a nearly-unstoppable predator. Now, a simple repair job becomes a desperate struggle for survival.
SPECIMEN is a card-driven two-player board game.
