"Turns out the rumours are all true. We’ve found something interesting in orbit around Neptune…"
Step aboard the ailing Russian rust bucket Phobos-17, we've got a mission for you. Somewhere in there is the score of a lifetime. And even though lifetimes ain't what they used to be, that's still pretty big.
Rumour is there's some high grade Uranium tucked away in a lab. Just like mummy used to make.
Lead-lined panties on standby. You're gonna need 'em.
Built inside a shipping container at the brilliant Artworks in Elephant and Castle, Phobos 17 is mostly harmless’ follow up to their 2018 Vaults show.
Teams of up to four can delve inside the Phobos on a hunt for a particular kind of radioactive treasure. You’ll have sixty minutes to get in, get the job done and get the hell out. Oh and try not to blow up the ship…

An utterly endearing retro sci-fi game with a good set, fun GM-ing and solid puzzles. Fun for enthusiasts and a great introduction for first timers.
I saw that Phobos-17 was closing down at the end of the year and as it had such positive reviews we just had to fit it in before it went, so we did.
One lifeboat, two teams. Did we manage to escape this game at VAULT Festival or were we left behind to die on the derelict prison ship?
