Xenohunters Sci-Fi Horror Game Beyond the Outer Rim
Testimonial from Pòl Rua:
“Xenohunters alone is worth the price of entry.
It's a narrative-heavy asymmetrical game about horrible aliens and daring crewmembers, with loads of options to enhance replayability and a system which makes sure that every game comes right down to the wire.”
Be Hunters or Aliens in this sci fi horror boardgame! Join a female mercenary squad fighting xenos outbreaks on the galactic frontier 💀
Xenohunters, welcome to the 36th century.
Humanity lives in station colonies throughout the galactic rim, and have enjoyed a golden age of peace built on eons of conquest and annexation.
However, ships and colonies are going dark and have become uncontactable.
The galactic council has expended their military forces to no avail - they need to call on the best.
You, the Xenohunters, have been summoned as the elite mercenary crew who live on the edge of the law to investigate the stations. You know very well: this is another outbreak of flesh-eating Xenos, creatures that harvest living flesh to birth monsters.
DON'T MAKE A SOUND
Remain hidden to avoid being mauled by the Xenos, or use your stealth to spring a surprise attack. Each player (including the Alien) have a Hidden Location grid on which they move when sneaking.
FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE
Claws swipe at you, teeth gnash at your ear - roll to strike, bring the Xenos down, and live another day.
RUMMAGE FOR UNIQUE SCI-FI EQUIPMENT
Hunters can collect and carry over 48 unique items, such as: a Laser Rifle to deal extensive damage, a Metabolic Suppressor to dizzy the Alien's sense, a Phase Jacket to teleport through doors, or a Hypersonic Ram to smash and crush enemies.
TRAVEL SWIFTLY THROUGH ALIEN-INFESTED DUCTS
With protection, invade the Alien's hive to attack or travel quickly across the board - but be careful. Who knows what you can run into in the dark...
DIE AND RETURN AS YOUR OWN WORST ENEMY
The Alien feasts on your flesh to rebirth you as a Hybrid Spawn. Continue to play and turn on your crew, now helping the Alien win at any cost.
FOUR UNIQUE MISSIONS
Different stations, all with different achievement levels for endless replayability. Play each mission separately or successively progress through each to discover the world of the Xenohunters and eradicate all Xenos from the galaxy.
CINEMATIC ACTION AND IMMERSIVE UNIVERSE
Be a hero and shove an ally out of harm's way, sacrifice yourself by detonating an explosion to achieve the mission, lock yourself in a room and use a Flame Thrower to annihilate every living thing. Or maybe.... abandon your crew, warp away, and save yourself.

More on their way!
"An excellent game to have in one’s collection. I personally have zero games utilizing hidden movement mechanics, so this will certainly fill a niche in my collection that I have neglected.
I love the theme and premise of the game, and it seems ripe for expansions. I can see many new human characters that can be added, more maps and scenarios, and even more big bads being thrown in to increase the difficulty."
