All of my votes were based solely on the Flare, and not the powers themselves.

Well...

Maybe not EVERY game.


I was just curious what everyone's favorite alien was.

I don't understand this thread at all. What is a "perfect Flare deck"? Is this about Flares or about alien powers? What is the point of collecting random unqualified votes about alien powers that people like in barchart form?

I think he's going off the idea that if players had a choice as to what Flares are used to bring the deck to 10/12 (in a single player game, only 5/6 of them are the aliens being played), then what Wild effects are the most entertaining and fun.

But he could also be trying to come up with a subset of the 50 aliens that veterans prefer, so he won't run into the common newbie issue of drawing less-than-juicy powers, and have a player be sour about it. In which case...

Brent, use all 50 Flares in your Flare deck.
