Those lovely stackable ships that Fantasy Flight Games made have a cool game function too. You can stack them when you play the Crusher. Just one of 30 new aliens to be included in #CosmicEons, the 6th expansion set from #FantasyFlightGames. #CosmicEncounter

I could have done with one fewer "Use ships of an unused color" alien.

This alien looks really fun. I could definitely do without the part about releasing the crushed ships, though. It's not thematic and the text is stuffed.

I think this could be done without an extra set of ships by using pieces similar to ship markers.

Would I be correct to assume that the alien sheets on Facebook aren't the final versions?

I like it, though it seems to have potential for reducing a player to less than 5 ships (in effect) and having no chance to win.

I'd like to see many more!

Though admittedly I never got over the fact that the expansions stopped including new player colors I know this is an unpopular opinion but I would gladly sacrifice the 5-10 worst aliens of each expansion for a new color on each. Pink! Gray! Brown! Turquoise! Gold! guhh

You could probably use the piece toppers that came in the cosmic dominion expansion.
