I am new to this game, having played it only twice so far. In the rules it states that after each player chooses their Alien Sheet, it is placed "face down" in front of them. This makes thematic sense, because the first encounter between two cosmic races would be as strangers. However, I cannot find anywhere in the rules where it states when the Alien Sheets should be revealed.
So, when should the Alien Sheets be turned face up? What we decided to do was, after setup is completed, each player reveals their alien and reads aloud the text on the Alien Sheet.
Is this correct, or are we going about this in the wrong way?
