We ask a question. A big one.
The new XCOM board game sounds phenomenal, but last month I played a different kind of XCOM board game. Watch the Skies was a day-long game run by the UK Society of Megagame Makers. “Megagame” is a name that doesn’t disappoint — each one features dozens of players controlling small parts of a massive story.
It’s easy to forget that X-COM: UFO Defense came out 20 years ago, which means some players of the more recent XCOM: Enemy Unknown might not realise the latter game is based on a classic, much-loved series. Regardless of your level of knowledge of the franchise, you’ll undoubtedly get something out of this fascinating talk about the decades-old title from its creator, Julian Gollop.
