Glad you're enjoying the game!

Maybe the person(s) playing the aliens are too quick to lay down cards. They need to pace themselves, playing cards only when they need to.

As to Revolver compared to Aliens, from a game mechanism PoV, a few cards were tweaked, and the alien player gained a powerful character card.

Hi Mark, can you give any more details about which cards were tweaked and how? I'm also a bit worried about adding any more power to the "Alien" player.

In my experience the Aliens are winning somewhere between 60 and 70% of games. This is mostly due to card draw, as the Marine player doesn't have a chance if his best cards are buried in the last 10-15 cards of the deck. I like the art and theme of Revolver, but would like to see some changes in the play balance before I purchase.
