First ever successful solo double action mission of Space Alert, worth 37 points. Killed everything except a Scout. Soon I need to think about adding in the New Frontier yellow threats...

Ridley Scott. WTF were you thinking? Electrifying a 2000 year old head brings it back to life. DNA reforms from nothing. Meet alien, alien rips your head off. Giant stone head included for no apparent reason. In fact the entire movie is a head case. At least you could have paid some experts to tell you why this was all bad in so many ways. Sigh.

Take away the spaceships and fancy spacesuits, and what you have is a Fantasy movie with Magic.

Typically several threats are in play at once. You do your best to kill them in the time you have. Sometimes you can see a threat will damage you but not destroy you, so you may leave it alone and focus on something else. The soundtrack has a definite end, and you can't put down any more cards. So now you reset the board and resolve what actually happened.

Single player Space Alert really gets the blood pumping. The Sitting Duck survives with 5 points internal damage from a Seeker that got away.

Saw a few snowflakes in central Auckland on Khyber Pass Rd this morning. They lasted for about 30 seconds.
