The Umbrella Academy: The Board Game is a co-operative game for 1-5 people in which the players work together as the Heroes from the famous Umbrella Academy.
To win, they must overcome a succession of dangerous hazards and defeat dastardly villains in order to save the world!
Each player has a hand of cards they can use to place Battle Tokens on potentially dangerous hazards and villains, or trigger special abilities unique to their chosen Hero.
The game is split into different phases - Play Phase (players take actions and move around the board), Draw Phase (draw new cards into their hand), Effect Phase (resolve the effects of Hazards and Villains), and Crisis Phase (generate new Hazards).
