20 double-sided module tiles, 1 evacuation pod tile, 4 reference cards, 36 rescue cards, 1 six-sided die, and 127 plastic figures (7 player robots, 50 colonists, 60 creeps, and 10 super creeps)

You’re a crack team of rescue robots, launched into space to help the humans at the Jupiter Deep colony get out of whatever predicament they've gotten themselves into. And it’s a big one this time. The station has been invaded by creeps — alien creatures that snack on humans and multiply until they consume all life in the area. Use your special tools and abilities to save them before the colony blows apart.

Jupiter Rescue is an exciting cooperative strategy game in which 2 to 7 players work together to evacuate colonists before they’re converted into alien creeps. Players take 5 actions to move, drive back the creeps, and use powerful programming cards. The board and dice rolls determine creep advancement, and double-sided tiles allow for hundreds of station variations.
