Houston, we have a %[email protected]# is a local multi-player co-op game. One player is Major Thompson, an astronaut stuck on a strange alien ship which is hurtling towards the Earth. Up to three other players are Ground Control, who must read the various manuals about the craft and tell the Major how to land successfully.

Installation Instructions: 


Seat Ground Control in front of a single table, and Major Thompson at another table out of sight, but in earshot (for instance, have the two groups facing each other with a divider between, or have them back-to-back).

Major Thompson has the tablet/computer (ideally with a touch interface) with the game. Ground Control has three manuals, ideally in 3 separate, stapled, A5 printed booklets.

Both groups watch their respective briefing videos (Major Thompson, Houston), and then Major Thompson starts the game.
