So played my first game of xenoshift the other day as a 2 player game.
We won, quite easily actually. 17 health on the base and in the last round we had like 6 troops survive.

Is this just a super random win? or is this game easy?

Play it some more and record the data. I don't think many people have had the chance to play this frequently yet, and just one game is hardly a good sample.

Maybe you are just really awesome at killing bugs?

It's possible some rules could have been missed or misinterpreted in your first playthrough. Not trying to offend here... I miss rules all the time for games I play often.

Micheal from cmon posted this on the kickstarterpage. Maybe this could be the reason for the easy win?

"One thing I know a lot of new players overlook is that

A. You can only respond to reveal effects with abilities that specifically say you can

and

B. Killing an Enemy when it is flipped does not negate its reveal effect

Of the rules, these are the two most commonly overlooked.

Our first game was 4 players. We got to Wave 3 before getting crushed. It was like 34 pts of damage to the base in the first round of wave three.

It was pretty fun but it did take longer than expected.

We got our first couple of games in tonight. Lost both but had a blast. First game was a 2 player and we lost early in 2nd wave. The second game was with 3 players and we did better , but still lost badly in 2nd round of Wave 3.
