“Trun-matic experience”

If you have 5 alien menace tokens, you can take a single ship into battle and force it into a Crushing Victory if you are playing the Trun. All you have to worry about is that the Resistance actually rolls one too…. Anyhow, a quick, desperate victory might help you win the game.

“Ultimate toughness!”

I played as the Trun tonight, and was initially a little bummed because their ability didn’t look as fun or interesting as some of the others….. but I was wrong! It’s fun to be so tough, it’s fun to get to roll and sometimes survive a fight after you’ve lost, and it’s fun to be able to turn an “almost” into a crushing victory! Don’t forget to spend a few actions building up alien menace tokens, and you’ll be a nearly unstable force to be reckoned with, blazing a trail of devastation through the lands of the puny humans… Mwahahahaha!

“Fishmen of Atlorak a little bit Broken”

This is one of the problem races. Their +1 strength on a water location is useless as there aren’t any water locations in the base game. Probably something that will be fixed in an expansion.

“Check out the soundtrack!”

This game comes with a fun soundtrack with retro style music reminescent of alien space battles and anthems. Not only does it help set the mood for this game and add a little flavor to the alien races (the soundtrack names mention the alien races from the game), but the soundtrack can be a great addition when playing other space games such as Cosmic Encounter or Space Alert as well.

Try it out in the background with your favorite space-themed games, or select a few tracks from it to include on a mix that best suits your taste. Adding a little music can be an easy but effective way to help set the mood for a great space game night!
