Alien vs Predator: Hot Landing Zone (AvP:HLZ) is an expansion to Alien vs Predator: The Hunt Begins (AvP:THB) tactical board game. In this expansion, rules for new Models are being introduced for each Faction! The AvP:HLZ expansion allows for the different Forces to do battle on limited visibility on the planet’s dense surface Jungles.
Each Model presents new tactical opportunities or a more advanced foe your Force needs to overcome, and they can be added to your existing AvP:THB Force or your used according to the Advanced Rules’ Custom Forces.
The Transport and Harass mechanic is introduced, in the form of a Dropship’s pilots taking part in the struggle for survival. The Human faction uses the Dropship to rapidly relocate their forces, while the Alien and Predator Factions try to make it too Hot a Landing Zone and cancel the Airlift operations.
AvP:HLZ presents additional rules, where you get to play a Free for All scenario of up to six players. Additional gaming boxes will be needed for this purpose, and use of add-on packs and Advanced Game Rules is highly recommended.
Whether you play using the Basic Rules or the Advanced Rules of the AvP:THB rulebook, this expansion allows you to expand your board game with the inclusion of Jungle Tile rules and other components, allowing for new and exciting Squads to join the fray. The use of Advanced Rules is enhanced as well, through additions to all Strategy and Event Cards, to either be added into the respective Decks, or replace cards from the basic set.
