Contra: The Board Game is a tabletop game developed by Blacklist Games set in the Contra universe.


For the game's story details, see Contra: The Board Game/story mode.
Created by the Earth Federation Government, Contra is composed of the world's most elite soldiers. With superior skills and an indomitable spirit, these commandos have been at the forefront of the fight with the extraterrestrial forces that have recently come to threaten humanity...

Welcome to Contra, soldier. Here's the sitrep.

Two months have passed since the end of the catastrophic Alien Wars, and society has slowly been rebuilding in the hopes of returning to how things were before the entity known as Red Falcon rained its fury across the globe.

Bill Rizer and Lance Bean, the war heroes you've undoubtedly heard about, have since been busy instructing the next generation of our elite task force. The moment Red Falcon went down, they knew it was only a matter of time before hostile forces from beyond the stars attempted another incursion. The Earth Federation Government has been trying to keep things positive by saying it's unlikely, but we trust our veterans' instincts.

Which brings us to today. Our satellites picked up bizarre imagery in the Galuga Archipelago—the location of Contra's first encounter with the Red Falcon Army. There seems to be new activity in the remains of the old alien base there, and some of the structures seem to have been rebuilt and enhanced. We sent a single recon drone in to get a closer look, and what we saw before contact was lost was most worrisome: Gomeramos King. The beating heart of Red Falcon's ambitious second-in-command, Java, was being carted around in some sort of large preservation chamber. We aren't sure how it's possible it survived its first encounter with Bill and Lance, but we need to get in there and take it out for good. We just ended the Alien Wars, and if the Red Falcon Army is attempting to rebuild, we need to prevent it from doing so before it ignites a new conflict.

There's no time to waste, soldier. Grab your weapon and board the chopper. It's time to go back to where it all began.[1]
