For screws where I can get to the edges of the screw, I use these Screw Extracting Pliers: Screw Extracting Pliers

For the screw you messed up, I use the correct tool, MacBook Pro and Air 5-Point Pentalobe Screwdriver

The easiest and cheapest way is to cut a very small piece of aluminium foil from your kitchen roll, and loosely put it onto the screw, then use a similar size normal flat blade screwdriver to unscrew the ruined one out.
