In the Boss rounds, do you spawn just a Boss or do you spawn Aliens AND a Boss?

Thanks.

yes. you spawn all the aliens as usual - plus the boss if the round overview says so.

where would be the fun of having a boss without minions ?

I was just grasping at straws really - this game is hard enough solo ;-)

Thanks for taking the time to reply - much appreciated.

Also add in the mega boss minis to the deck...no benefit to the players just to the aliens. that seems off somehow. I think the megabosses should have come with some extra cool cards for the players.

you mean, like yielding more than just an alien tech card for being killed?

I get where you are going with this, but if you got more powerful toys along with the more powerful bosses then you have a problem with ability creep. Eventually your character is worthless if you don't have the latest and the best. I assume the purpose of the tougher bosses was to make the game more challenging and if you give the characters more toys, then you're really not making it more challenging.

still like where is going lol
though, yea, I see your point.. correct one I might add

I haven't play with the mega boss yet (only have the KS one, no addons) and I`m too afraid of him still LOL

I kind of want to do a special mission though with the mega boss, were he just don't go off the board, but affect more and is like the "final boss" of the mission. haven't thought much about it yet...

waiting to see the campaign mode that Artipia promised. If some sort of story or progression maybe I can use that as the foundation and go around that
