played a very enjoyable 2nd game where we had 5 players. Four players were on 4 foreign colonies at the end with the other on 3 - exciting finish with the Spiff Alien winning the day.
I looked through the Alien deck out of curiosity and noticed the Parasite Alien. He seems pretty mean.
Do I have it right that he can just add 1 ship as an ally to every attack (invited or not) and if the attack wins he gets a foreign colony as usual? So the game could end in 5 turns with five successful attacks.
How do you react against this threat?
