Let’s Kickstart This! They Live: Assault on Cable 54

By Nolan P. Smith

Are you ready to check out the world of Kickstarter once again? This project was brought to my attention by Pastrami Nation’s own Eddie Aguirre, a big-time board game enthusiasts and I am betting a fan of the cult classic film, They Live. So let’s shine the spotlight down on They Live: Assault on Cable 54 board game.

Based on the 1988 film starring WWF Legend Rowdy Roddy Piper, the game puts you back in a world that is more than meets the eye. Here is the info from the Kickstarter page:

They Live: Assault on Cable 54 is a narrative-driven co-operative adventure game for 4-6 players (with an additional 1-3 player ‘blind play mode’ that has now been unlocked as part of our day 1 funding goal).

The action-packed board game will let you explore the sprawling city of LA to build a stash of weapons, allies, and items as you progress towards your ultimate goal; the assault on Cable 54 and the defeat of our unearthly Invaders. THEY are the ones in control of the signal, and it’s your mission to take them down!

Of course, it wouldn’t be much of a game if it were that easy…

There are enemies hiding in your midst attempting to sabotage your progress, and even some of your own team may not be who they say they are. As a member of the resistance, it’s your job to weed out the traitors and take them down before it’s too late.

Lucky for you… you have these! Now put them on, or start eating that trash can.

Eddie expressed his excitement for this amazing project, and I agree- this looks like a must-back project! Check out the Kickstarter page at
