Awards & Reviews
“If you want to play a challenging, cooperative game, then Planet Apocalypse is definitely worth checking out. The excellent production values and balanced gameplay should make any gamer happy. If you want to increase the difficulty, the game comes with multiple rules to do so and includes flawed but cool heroes that can upgrade to match most challenges. ”
-Brian Winters, Board Game Quest
"Alex und Becki von dem YouTube Kanal "Die Nische" werfen sich in den finsteren Abgrund von Planet Apocalypse. Erlebt in diesem ersten Teil wie sich die Beiden gegen immer wieder auftauchende Monsterhorden stellen und sich ihren Weg in Richtung Lady Stheno bahnen."
Devon Norris, gametyrant.com
“Humanity is on the ropes, and unknown heroes need to step up.If you like coop games, this is a good one! It’s like a steamroller coming at you on a conveyer belt, with lots of variety and strategic elements. It has a lot of pop on the table and huge components. I can also play it solo, and it has lots of staying power. Two thumbs up!. ”
-Over The Top Gaming, YouTube Channel
“Overall, very pleased with the game. It was a lot of good, tense fun, which is essential for a co-op. There's a fair bit of dramatic tension too, in the form of the 'hell clock' and the steady advancement of the Lord along the map. I'll share more thoughts after our next game. ”
-Montgomery Mullen, boardgamegeek.com
“Planet Apocalypse is the best co-op asymmetric strategy game I've played. The group dynamics, unique characters, createive talents, and different big bosses make each playthrough feel as fun and exciting as the first.”
-Ron Searcy, unpaid playtester
“My favorite hero I have played is a farm girl. Her disadvantage is that she always has to spend the funds from the shared pool before she can spend any of her personal wealth. Basically she is too naive to think about the consequences of her actions. The look on the faces of the other players when they know it is her turn to go first is priceless. I have never enjoyed disadvantages in a game like I do Planet Apocalypse. Planet Apocalypse is an intense game where the character weaknesses are as much fun to play as their strengths.”
-Jamie Bergman, gaming personality
“The most fun I've ever had having my soul devoured by a demonspawn.”

“Planet Apocalypse: the game that relegates Zombicide to the dust bin!”
-Adam Starks, legendary game critiquer
“I have had the opportunity to play this a few times and it is going to be a great co-op game! Can't wait to play it with my group of friends.
A few cool things about it:
- Players can easily be added mid-game. PA has a simple and balanced scaling feature.
- Deep Strategy
- Character Progression
- A pool of 'gifts' make each game unique. Your character will never progress the same way twice.
- Legions add a special attribute to the demon hordes that changes once or twice a game, makeing each fresh.
- Multiple maps add lots of variety.
- THE FIGURES! I have the honor of painting the first batch of resin prototypes so I can confirm the models are among the best creature designs in my gam elibrary. Very creative, varied, and horrifying.
I am super excited for the launch on the 29th! See you guys in the KS comments!”
-Chase Norton, famed figure painter
“The group upgrades and troops really differentiate it, as do the difficulty of the monsters. It feels more like a collaborate experience than everyone just kind of doing their own thing.”
-Dave Mendiola, writer and legendary gamer
