FAZA is a cooperative science fiction board game for 2-4 players navigating a post-apocalyptic city. In order to save your city from the Faza, your extraterrestrial occupiers, your team will need to destroy their three motherships.
Your team, called Faction Zeta, has eight characters, possessing different skills within one of four areas of focus: tactical, medical, technological, and political. Faction Zeta will utilize the unique skills of each member to fight for final victory over the Faza.
As you move across the board, you will be combatting enemy drones and recruiting Rebel Faza to attack each mothership. Naturally, over the course of the game, the Faza will be fighting back: dropping off more troops in attempts to overwhelm you, transforming the entire city to only be habitable to their kind, killing off the traitorous Rebel Faza to prevent you from attacking their motherships, and of course trying to kill you.
Meet the cast of characters. In Faza, players will have to make difficult choices, and one of these decisions is the role you’ll play on the team.
We’re Not Alone
It was November 16, 1974 and the world’s largest radio telescope located in Arecibo, Puerto Rico was aimed at the center of the Hercules Globular Cluster, readied with its contribution to the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence: a message encoded with our location in the solar system, the structure of our DNA, the average size and the total number of humans on Earth, as well as an image of the telescope itself that sent out the Arecibo message.
