Aliens: This Time It's War, also known as Aliens: The Board Game, is a 1989 tabletop board game published by Leading Edge Games. The game allows players to recreate several key battles and sequences from the film Aliens. The game includes a 32-page rulebook, along with a rules summary booklet and associated player cards and counters. An expansion for the game was released in 1991.
The game was designed by Barry Nakazono and David McKenzie, who would go on to develop the Aliens Adventure Game role-playing game (RPG), also for Leading Edge Game. Aliens: This Time It's War was a far more stripped-down product than the later RPG, containing a level of detail well short of a full RPG module, with no role-playing system involved. It used maps and character icons to recreate three pivotal action scenes from the film.
In 2009, a fan-made flash adaptation of the game was released online.
