What seems like a fairly simple game can pit you against your friends in a hurry. You start off as a crewmate on a spaceship and have to do certain tasks. While you are doing this, there are imposters on board that go around and kill the crewmates by literally biting their heads off. Sounds like fun, right? Well, this is where it gets really good because as an imposter you can get voted out.

This makes things a bit more tricky but offers hours of fun with friends as it is an easily understandable game that most anyone can get to grips with.
