Haven't been able to find any thoughts on this and was wondering if this mode was worth anything when deciding whether the game is for me or not. Thanks!

I have this game but never tried this mode. Funny, I was coming here to post this same question, how well it plays. I've never played an overlord type game before.

I'm curious about that too...

I was also wondering if someone give a try to that Galaxy Ball variant.

I don't think Alien Mind has been played much (at least not by people who were later inclined to post on BGG about it). I've never tried it because the vast majority of my GD games are solo (don't have a dedicated group to play with, so if I'm playing with other people it's mostly on Mission 1, and anything beyond default alien AI would be too complicated).

Galaxy Ball is reportedly quite fun, although I don't think anyone has done a comprehensive review. Here's a playthrough with pictures, though.

Maybe a play by forum session is in order then. Who's up for it? ;-)

Haven't tried Alien Mind either as I enjoy the full coop of this game. If I want an alien mind I'd rather go and play Descent. However, Galaxy Ball is indeed tremendous fun and not just a cheap scenario slapped onto the base game.

Would join about any play by forum if such a game would be run. Unfortunately don't have enough time to GM one right now.

And did someone try it?

The possibility to add a sixth player makes this variant interesting.

I would only use this variant if there were more than 5 players in the group. This game is already great as a purely co-op experience, and I feel like changing it to team vs. 1 would change the feel of the game too much.
