Big Trouble in Little China: The Game is an adaptation of the 1986 John Carpenter movie.

One to six players play as heroes from the movie- trucker Jack Burton, his friend Wang, the sorcerer Egg Shen, and company. Gameplay uses dice to determine what actions each character can do each turn, and fixed results for each action once performed.

The game has two phases; the first phase is spent exploring Chinatown, completing quests, collecting items, and fighting enemies. Once either the heroes or the villains make sufficient progress, the game moves to the second phase- the lair of Lo Pan. There, the heroes have a certain number of turns to reach and defeat Lo Pan before he regains his full power.
