use a impact screwdriver next time. try to drill out of the screw without damaging the threads.

You may still be able to use an impact driver. If you have a dremel you might try grinding a slot into the head. The using a flat tip on the impact driver it may come out still. Worth a shot.

I went out this afternoon bought an impact driver and decided to give it a shot without even grinding a slot. (There was still a little shape left in the phillips slots.) A few good whacks with the hammer and she started turning. Easy peasy. Definitely will reach for this first if I need to remove a phillips screw from now on.
