We Come in Peace blasts its way into the market this summer – Prepare for the invasion!

Ready your blasters and scramble your missiles in this game of exponential chaos! The Alliance of Six Planets has come to an end – and now you must do what it takes to defend your home world from the hordes of flying saucers that darken the skies and lay waste to your cities.

We Come in Peace, the latest release from the creative minds at Rather Dashing Games, is a fast, fun, strategic dice game for 2 to 6 players, ages 8 and up. Every turn, use an increasing number of Invasion dice to attack your opponents and Defense dice to fight back when they come after you! Resources are limited, and you can’t stop all the invaders. Choose how to best employ Blasts or Interceptors to repel enemy flying saucers, rebuild cities destroyed in the onslaught and launch Missiles directly at your opponents’ planets. Be the planet with the least damage at the end to claim a victory of galactic proportions!

We Come in Peace is played in three rounds. A simple scoring system makes this game easy to learn and play. We Come in Peace is anything but peaceful and is as much fun to lose as it is to win.

  • 6 Planet Boards
  • 6 Cores (double sided)
  • 72 Cities (double sided)
  • 9 Invasion Dice
