This is a contest for the True X-Phile!

As you know, The X-Files Board Game is finally amongst us. The folks at IDW Games have been hard at work on this puppy for quite some time and they have given us a set to give away to a worthy fan.

Now, this is a contest that will be challenging. We want to put those profiling and investigative minds at work; you like The X-Files, right? Well, you must surely have some FBI skills of your own.

Here is the premise of the contest

Through all of our pages you will find five different cards, one on each XFN page. The following is an actual game piece:


You can find the rest of the game pieces at our Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and Instagram â€“ Collect all of them!

The combination of the five cards will reveal a single quote from the show. We have broken down the complete quote in five parts; there’s one card to a portion of the quote. Each card, by itself, deciphers a single portion. When you combine all five phrases that you figure out from each card, you will have the complete quote. Simple enough, huh?

How to get the hidden messages:

Look at each card as a single entity. Try to figure out the message through the clues in the picture. You should be able to figure out a sentence per card. If you get stuck with one card, move on to the next, they’re not in any particular order.

Think about what the figures mean, what that iconic picture reminds you of, open your mind to abstract thinking.

Once you figure out one card, we’re pretty sure that the solution of the rest of the cards will be very easy for you! The quote is from an episode of the The X-Files, not an interview, or outtake; it’s a line of dialogue said by one of the actors on screen. It can be from any of the seasons, or either of the two movies.
