Did you guys see this?

And, if you did, did it get you wondering again if the setting could be turned into a game?

Did it reveal to you any new aspects of Outpost 31, that could be put to use in the building of the terrain pieces?

NOTE: Apparently there was a Board Game too in the works last year, called INFECTION AT OUTPOST 31:

I thought it WAS a documentary…

LOL. If it was … that would explain a lot of things.

How is it? What's it like?

if you ever played werewolf or killer at a convention
its like clue only one or more of the players is the bad guy

I would do it as a role-playing game, not a miniatures game. I would have to infect the player-characters to keep up the suspense. Call of Cthulhu of course comes to mind for the game system, but Traveller or 2300 would work, as would, no doubt, many other systems.

Wow, it looks like they use the map and everything in that boardgame.

I haven't played a boardgame in like forever, much less one that runs like a hybrid rpg.

Could these 15mm guys from CP Models be made to look as though they were in snow?



Of course there are the 15mm men in parkas from Khurasan:

Wish eBob would bring back their 28mm range!

Cacique Caribe29 Apr 2018 9:15 a.m. PST

Those looked like great figures too.

A great time reliving , one of the best films I have ever been scared by, the concept of the creatures ability is bowel moving :)

I agree. One of the very best.

And I might get to watch it again this weekend. :)
