I'm a bit disappointed that playing as the Alien queen appears to be limited exclusively to PvP. Although I will probably still buy the expansion, I was hoping that it would be similar to playing as the Predators in their version of Encounters. My kids and I enjoy playing these games for the (mostly) cooperative experience (our Predators are usually very friendly toward each other).

I don't know. I can't imagine how more than one player can play "as the Queen" unless she was sitting on the side like the Serenity is in Firefly and everyone plays as xenomorphs trying to hit the humans or Predators. She gets hit just like the Serenity and if she dies the game is lost. Players would be able to heal her, maybe have goals to achieve, like bring her Ripley etc

I have Predator and it is quite natural for there to be more than one.

Just to add I always assumed the hive Functions with some form of hive mind, and the queen is the center of that consciousness

I guess that some minor liberties would need to be taken with the theme. Perhaps there are several alien queens vying for control of the hive, all descending on the extremely unlucky humans, predators or splinter group aliens at the same time?

Interesting card....though it's a starting card, it's unlike any other starting card in a Legendary game. it has no cost! I'm so curious to see what else is in there. i hope we're talking at least 4 more locations and at least 12 new objectives!

Yes I noticed that as well
I assumed as the Queen what cost/recruit is there? She needs xenomorphs, lay some eggs! So it will be interesting to see how they deal with this

We know there are 2 types of starting cards : Attack ability cards (Grunt or Brute Strength in LE Predator) and Recruit ability cards (Specialist or Experience in LE Predator) It seems logical to me this "Destroy" starting card for Alien Queen Mother is an Attack starting card and there should be another starting card type with Recruit ability.

I'd imagine the mechanism will stay more or less the same only with reversed roles - Your Barracks deck will contain Aliens while the Hive deck will contain Marines or other human characters from the films, going through the complex trying to destroy the player - Alien Queen. Of course the names of the decks will be probably changed as well... There will be Locations for all 4 films but the Objectives will be adapted for Aliens... In this aspect, if the mechanism stays basically the same, I don't see why it would be so difficult to adapt it for solitary play as well. But all that is just largely my speculation at this point.

Mark said on Facebook that this will be similar to the Ambition deck introduced in Legendary Marvel Secret Wars volume 1 expansion. Thus, my prediction is that there will only be 8 Recruit cards and 4 Attack cards introduced in the box, basically extending the player count to a maximum of 6 (5 playing on the regular mat and 1 on the new mat).

Yes I agree with you here, but it is interesting there is no cost on the card even if it is like a trooper grunt with 0 cost. I can't remember how the ambition cards work and I have never played with them. Are they drawn straight from the top of the deck? Are cards even recruited?

No, they're attacked for the attack value on them, and then the card effect listed on the card triggers. (This Ambition card becomes a Master Strike, or Each player discards all grey Heroes or what-have-you.)

But how does the MM player gain them to their hand. .?

In Marvel, the Mastermind player doesn't. Instead, there's a five-card tableau he chooses from. One card comes out from the Ambition Deck every turn, and one of the five cards is permanent and never actually leaves the tableau.

I was patiently waiting for news on this expansion knowing we would get it whenever we get it. But now that the first tidbit has been revealed I find that I'm rushing to this thread several times a day like a Xenomorph Swarmer! laugh

It makes me a little scared ...
If these are alternative scenarios for the 4 films (What if scenarios), Why not.
But if it's completely new content, unrelated to the movies, I'm not interested...

Regarding new human characters, I think I speak for many fans if I say I hoped for "right" technician Brett and Vasquez. Andrews, Elgyn... fine. But then we get Kane (who is OK, but his only real purpose in the story is getting impregnated and give birth to the Alien. What else he can possibly do in the game?) and... a**hole Gorman! Probably the second most unsympathetic character from Aliens, after Burke. So the new Barracks characters look like downer for me... Unless there were some changes since the early announcement.
