Hello fellow gamers.

I enjoyed the heck out of 51st State and now The New Era.
Neither of them is a part of the new Master Set.

If you played two or three of these could you please answer the following questions:

Is Alien Artifacts as good?
As intense?
Balanced?
Worth adding?

Thanks

I can not answer your question but Zee on the dice tower loves 51 st state and speaks about this in his review of Alien Artifacts.

Here is where they start talking about it

I am a huge fan of New Era, and I play the 51SMS as a passable substitute.

After some initial enthusiasm for Alien Artifacts, I've cooled on it. I've played a number of times and had fun, but a few times now one player has successfully pursued an irritating (I won't say "broken") and unfun strategy, resulting in a fairly miserable experience. Even when I've gotten my ass handed to me in New Era or 51S it's not been as unpleasant.

There's a decent game here, but it needs some polish. I'd rather just play more 51S than try and navigate around the potholes here.

Would you mind sharing the strategy? Just curious to hear about tactics.
