A perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility.
REPORT ISSUED BY DALLAS, ARTHUR: An Alien is stalking us on board the Nostromo, and Executive Officer Kane is dead. The remaining crew and I are working together to patch the ship and do what we can to survive. I don’t know if we’ll make it. The Alien is big, fast, and deadly, and could be waiting just beyond the next hatch…
Take on the role of the Nostromo’s crew and work together to move through the ship, gather supplies, and craft items to complete objectives. To win, complete your objectives and one of five final missions before your morale runs out. And remember—in space, no one can hear you scream.
PLAYING ALIEN: FATE OF THE NOSTROMO
On your turn, you’ll take the number of actions indicated on your crew placard. You can either move around the Nostromo or pick up, craft, use, or trade items with other crew members. Each crew member also has a special ability. Items are extremely helpful in navigating the Nostromo while fending off the Alien and maintaining morale. Watch out for conceal tokens—you might encounter an empty room, Jonesy the cat, or the Alien!
After you take your actions, you’ll draw an Encounter card! The card will tell you where coolant canisters and scrap (used to make items) appear within the ship. Depending on the card, the Alien might also go on the hunt, moving as quickly as it can towards the nearest crew member…
Complete your objective cards (such as crafting items and moving them to a specific room in the ship), then reveal your final mission. To win, complete your final mission before morale runs out or the ship self-destructs!
