hey guys! one thing I've noticed is that in 2 player smash up, the Zombie Aliens most times win and are really OP. Play mall crawl at the beginning to get the invaders into the discard pile, then you spam your invaders the whole game, and bam: solid victory. But one question that I haven't found an answer to yet, is what counters this pair? my guess is something with the shapeshifters, but I haven't found anything. What do all a y'all think goes against them well?

Are we just doing Base set? With just the first 8 I don't think there's much you could do to counter that, Robot Dinos to try and take enough bases before they can win I guess. But if we're doing Expansions, then there should be a couple good counters. Itty Critter Shape Shifters in particular should wreck Zombie Aliens. Steal invader, spam copycat Invader, and break bases while you're at it.

If expansions are included you can also do Geeks or Elder Things, as they shuffle opponents discard piles. This is one of the biggest counters to Zombies.

For base set, I learned Aliens ARE the counter to Zombies, so having both of them together means there's nothing left to counter. If just doing base, you can try Robots and Pirates, since those two are the counters for each other?
