Geeks a Gogo recently received a preview copy of Faza, a new cooperative tabletop board game that's currently on Kickstarter. Faza tells the story of an alien invasion of earth, in which humans fight off the invaders with the help of a faction of alien rebels.
Players get choose a character and work together using their character's strengths to destroy the 3 alien mother ships. The game can be played on multiple difficulty levels, with a game board that can be rearranged into multiple configurations, giving the game a lot of replay value.
On top of that, the game has a really great retro sci-fi style and nicely-designed pieces.
