Since we started playing this game no one faction has stood out as being too strong for any others and only certain combos have gained notoriety. Currently it would appear we have found one in Steampunks. This faction seems to have a perfect combination of strong minions and really useful actions and combined, as I did, with Aliens it became a real force to be reckoned with. James found the Ghosts fiddly. To activate some of their best attributes the players hand needs to have only a few cards in it. This is a tough thing to achieve because very often your hand size grows and grows throughout the game.
|The holy trinity of Action cards!|
James found himself effectively locked out of at least one base at any one time during the game due to my cards which prevented him from playing actions. It became hard work. As bases built up with minions I was able to play strong point boosting cards and claim the 1st scoring place on bases I smashed.
It was the first game that wasn't really close which kind of took the shine off it.
