IDW Games Announces “The X-Files” Big Box Board Game

WAY back in 1993, Chris Carter launched a series that would captivate audiences for the following 9 years with 202 episodes of Twilight Zone-esque magic that we couldn’t turn away from.  The weekly exploits of Scully and Mulder on “The X-Files” became much anticipated water-cooler talk every Monday as we eagerly anticipated the upcoming show and the theme song haunted our dreams.

This summer, fans of The X-Files will have a brand-new way to search for the truth, with the release of a brand-new big box board game!

And what show created more classic villains than The X-Files? I still remember the first time I laid eyes on Flukeman, now we’ll give fans the chance to lose sleep all over again!”
