Earth, 2031. Following the defeat of the Robotech Masters by Dana Sterling's 15th Tactical squad, the planet faces a new threat. Alien spores called Protoculture are spreading all over Earth, and this has not gone unnoticed in the universe.
The mysterious alien race is known as the Invid - arch enemies of the Robotech Masters - launch a full-scale invasion of Earth to secure the valuable Protoculture energy. With only a rag-tag collection of guerilla fighters to defend what’s left of the planet, survivors can only pray for the return of the long-forgotten Robotech Expeditionary Force (REF) to save them from total annihilation.
Invid Invasion is an immersive and thematic 1-6 player fully cooperative Robotech game played in two phases, where human Heroes must work together using their mecha and Protoculture to cleanse Reflex Point of the alien Invid invaders and their Queen Regess before it’s too late. During the first phase, players deal out a grid of facedown Invid Cards. Each turn, players move their Heroes around the grid, choosing which Invid Cards to flip over to potentially expose enemies, ambushes, or valuable allies.
The Heroes must clear a path from one side of the board to the other to reach Reflex Point before the end of six turns. Once the path to Reflex Point is cleared, the Heroes begin Phase Two, the Regess phase. The alien queen Regess and her guards are dealt out face up, along with additional Invid warriors. Our Heroes must defeat the powerful Regess within six turns. But the clock is ticking.
The long-forgotten Robotech Expeditionary Force is on its way home to Earth. If our heroes fail to destroy the Invid, the returning Robotech Expeditionary Force will end the Invid threat—and our unfortunate Heroes — once and for all, by bombarding the planet with the dreaded Neutron-S missiles, destroying all life on the planet. To win, the Heroes must clear the path to Reflex point and defeat the Regess at Reflex Point before the missiles fall.
Do you think you and your friends are up to the task of saving the Earth when all odds are stacked against you, against the mighty Invid horde that seeks to enslave all humans?
