I understand there are some aliens that move after they spawn, and some that don't. But what if you have more non-moving aliens spawn than there are red x's? Do multiple aliens sit on a single red x space? Or do you place them on spaces closest to the red x spaces?

Nope, they get pushed. So you fill the red x's first, once those are filled the next ones "push" the ones on the x forward (following the arrows).

This is the threat of some of the special aliens, like the slugs and myriads. 6 of them come out so they will push the other aliens forward pretty significantly.

You never have more than 1 alien sharing the same spot, and if they would move forward into a "hero", they would also push them back and deal damage in the process.

It is as Tyler said.

You can also find a mention for this on the top of page 10 in the game's rulebook.

Quote:
If there are not enough unoccupied Xs to spawn all the miniatures of that card, or if there are other miniatures already occupying those Xs, players must move other miniatures (following the arrows) to make space for all miniatures to be spawned.


Thank you!

Do you want to take a chance on what else might spawn? Or even worse, take a change that nothing spawns there and instead spawns some place else? whistle
