Decades edition.
Played 2 teams of 7 for awhile, then as folks began to disperse it turned into just a How-Many-Can-We-Get-Right-In-28-Seconds thing.
Loads of fun, laughs, Teddy running the Gauntlet, and Marcel killing it.
Great to see Nathan Woz again, home on break.

7v7 game:
W - BRIAN M, JEFF O, JOSH O, MATT N, NATHAN Woz, ROBBIE, & SCOTT
L - Brian C, Bruce, James L, Marcel, Steven H, Stosh, & Teddy O

28-Second Challenge:
JAMES L & NATHAN Woz combined as Clue-Givers for 8, bested later by JAMES & STOSH getting 9 (at the buzzer).

This made me laugh sooo much: (a few NSFW moments, sorry)

Mission 5: Starship Troops

After a successful mission the Galaxy Defender team returned to the HQ for debriefing when suddenly right outside an alien mother-ship landed and began a heavy assault.

The Agents:

Agent Chromium (Greg H)
GD Droid (Jeff O)
Agent Titanium (Brian M)
Agent Iridium (Teddy O)
Agent N (Cristie M)

The agents immediately tried to move into defensive positions to try to slow and counter the alien onslaught that was coming. Chromium and Titanium set up in a position inside a window. GD Droid made his way to the base defensive turret with support from Agent N. Iridium hid in the decorative bushes outside the front of the base.

Within moments the aliens were inside the base itself engaging in hand to hand combat with the agents. The threat was so overwhelming the aliens had ripped Agent Chromium out of his window position and dragged him into the open and swarmed him, and mauled him until nothing was left.

At the turret GD Droid got a couple shots off before an alien arachnid started dragging him across the battlefield as well. No matter what he did he couldn't break the aliens grip on him until he was dragged all the way inside the alien mother-ship were he was dismantled so fast he couldn't engage his self destruct sequence.

Agent Titanium was holding strong as usual but was surrounded by several annoying spine critters and suffered death from a thousand paper cuts.

Agent Iridium was holding strong taking out alien after alien with his heavy sniper rifle and even took out the greatest threat, an enraged Xeno-beast (red elite level). Iridium was backed into a corner when a Nexus, an alien assault mech, fired it's rocket pod and killed Iridium.

Agent N was went berzerk and was slaughtering alien after alien and picking up there weapons, using them against the aliens, knocking them down left and right, critical hit after critical hit, Agent N ran back into the now clear HQ and hid in the corner as the remaining aliens advanced. Agent N jumped out of the window as they bared down, when suddenly military fighters had flown in and chased the remaining aliens back to their ship. Surrounded by death and destruction Agent N had survived the alien onslaught just long enough to force the aliens to retreat.

Mission Partially Accomplished! (1 agent survived until the end of the 15th round)

Side note: I'd say a good visualization for this mission would be the final battle in the movie Saving Private Ryan.
