‘The X-Files’ Board Game Coming This July


X-Files fans know “the truth is out there” and now they can find it themselves. IDW Games announced today the upcoming release of The X-Files board game.

Designed by Kevin Wilson, best known for Arkham Horror and Civilization, The X-Files board game uses material from the first three seasons of the TV show. Players team up in groups of two to five to investigate strange phenomenon and battle the “Monsters of the Week.” They will also fight against another player who controls the Cigarette Smoking Man and the Syndicate. Gallery and comic book artist menton3 provided both art direction and the box art for the game.

“To me, there’s no more exciting title than The X-Files,” Jerry Bennington, IDW Director of New Business, said. “Who wouldn’t want the chance to play as the wise cracking Fox Mulder or the incredibly intelligent Dana Scully?”

The X-Files board game, made in collaboration with Pandasaurus Games, will be available this July at the suggested retail price of $59.99.
