To add variety Alie-Huns can be played competitively, where the last Hun standing, or the Hun who defeats the most aliens wins; or competitively, where players must work together to outlast the invaders.
This makes the game accessible to a variety of gaming groups from the family friendly co-opers to the competitive winner take all crowds.
Dice are used to determine which rows of tents are invaded and which rows receive extra support each turn, while players must use strategy to determine their position, share (or not) equipment, and fight off the aliens in the combat phase.
The layout of the board changes each game as tents are set randomly throughout the map, and rows are assigned random numbers, so the experience is never the same twice.
This game is currently in draft form, but is gearing up for heavy rounds of public play-testing.

Also, special thanks to the folks at MeepleSource.com for some great information on large quantity orders of meeples, including custom work. The image to the right shows a sample of their product that we are using in the demo version, and hope to include in a final product if and when we reach that point.
