Hi there,

Does the Game ends imidiately when an Alien Moves to the final Zone during the Alien spawning phase ( Phase 2) or can I still kill it in the upcommng Action Phase (Phase 3)?

rulebook page 5, top:

phase 3.6 (end of round, after alien movement):
Quote:
The players lose the game if one or more of the following occur:
- An Alien steps into the Map’s Starting Area.


so yes, game over immediately.

I thought an alien had to be in the start area at end of round for players to lose not immediately upon entering?

Page 5 of the rule book, 3.6.1, states:

"The players lose the game if one or more of the following occur:
* An Alien steps into the Map's Starting Area. If this happens during Action Phase, the game ends immediately even if there is still time left."
(Bold formatting added by myself for emphasis.)

I hope this helps


EDIT: For some reason, I missed Clawf1ng3r's post. Sorry about looking like I am trying to steal your thunder!
