It was an upright arcade game, but played like a board game. You and some (allegedly) hyper intelligent extraterrestrial take turns placing tokens (colonies, energy nodes, whatever) on a series of boards that change from round to round. Tokens next to the token you place get 'flipped' to your color. There was console art depicting spacey aliens with pseudopods. [more inside]
Looking for a name of a novel, but can only remember one scene, where a guy is recruited for some sort of mission in a video arcade. [more inside]

Anyone remember the name of this classic arcade game? [more inside]
I remember back in '89 or '90 playing a single player arcade game where the main character looked like a barbarian and weilded a large sword. You could also find an axe later. A small cast of the enemies included skeletons carrying what looked like chandeliers. Does anyone know the name of this game? I know it isn't Golden Axe or Ghouls n' Goblins.
