You alone command the forces of a city holding off invading aliens.

Under Falling Skies is a solo game with a multi-mission campaign. In each mission, you take charge of defending a besieged city.
Your actions are powered by an innovative dice placement mechanic. When you choose an action, you are also choosing which enemy ships will descend. Bigger numbers give better effects, but they also cause ships to descend faster.
Expand your underground base to gain access to more powerful actions, allowing you to shoot down enemy ships or deploy robots to increase your workforce, but don't forget to work on your research and watch your energy supply.
The mothership draws closer every round, ratcheting up the tension.
Can you complete your mission before your base is destroyed?
This is such a great game, simple, yet challenging enough to get you dragged in to it from the get go. With an alien invasion threating various cities, your task is to research a way to defeat them. But, here's the catch, every turn you're also moving the alien ships closer to an attack. What to do, shot them down? Make more research? Slow down their descent?
The game is space Invaders with a big dollop of strategy.
There are four campaigns, but it might be a while before you get to play them as there is so many configuration of the board with the the starter cities to up the difficulty how you see fit.
Even though it's 12+ I got this for my 7yr old. After the initial figuring out the game mechanics, he totally got it and by the third party through was already strategizing how to make the best decisions to prevent those pesky alien ships attacking. Because the board can be more customised, it makes the game totally engaging in every play through.
