You’ve seen The Thing, right? Well this is the board game adaptation.
Very serious fans of the movie will already know that of course, since Who Goes There? is the name of John W. Campbell Jr.’s original 1938 novel that the film is based on, but I just wanted to get that clear up top, since a working knowledge of either is going to help going forwards here.
Who Goes There? (the game), bearing the book’s name but with loads of visual cues lifted straight from John Carpenter’s 1982 movie, was originally released in 2018 and was pretty well-received, albeit with a few fairly common complaints. It returned a couple of years later in 2020 with a Second Edition which, like a video game in need of some post-launch care, sought to address some of the original version’s issues.
