Gallery and comic book artist mention3 is providing the illustrations that will be used for the game’s cover and throughout its various components.
IDW’s The X-Files board game will have an MSRP of $59.95 and will focus on material from the first three seasons of television series, giving fans a chance to start their board game adventures from the beginning of the The X-Files phenomenon, which was one of the major TV successes of the 1990s. Players will get the chance to take on the role of Mulder, Scully, and the X-Files team as they work to uncover global conspiracies and threats while going up against various members of the Syndicate.
IDW acquired the license to publish The X-Files comics in early 2013 (see "IDW to Publish 'X-Files' Comic Book Series"). There have been The X-Files card games and trivia games issued before, but this appears to be the first true The X-Files strategy board game.
