We wanted to keep the overall feeling and pace of the huk the same and not have any of the rules we added or changed to have such an impact on the game as to alter it into something new. As if we have any experience fighting aliens in deep space. After a few games playing like this, we found certain situations would keep coming up that just didn’t seem right rklebook us. There are others, but these are the core modifications we use in all our games.
I want to say it’s not much, but when I printed it all out, it looked like a good bit more It’s only three pages with lots of white space. That tends to balance it out and you don’t end up fighting for one side all the time. Basically trying to “break” it by putting it through as many different situations as possible.
A nice feature of Space Hulk is that both players get to play both sides. I have no problem modifying an existing game’s rules to make it more enjoyable to play. Where the existing rules just didn’t capture the in-game effect we wanted. As time went on, we found our modifications to the game growing in number. Fortunately, my friend feels the same way. What have we changed? There’s no doubt about it.
Written by Ron Saikowski, January 15, Some psace refuse to stray from the beaten path, hhulk cut their own path. That’s when we stopped and took a few steps back.
You end up working towards a greater balance because you never know which side you’ll end up playing in a given game. After enough games, the new “rule” was adopted and used from that point on. The butterfly effect as it’s known. If need be, we’d stop a game and work through the problems until we had a workable solution and then start playing again.
We tried to keep the “new” things we added to the game to an absolute minimum and only if we could not use an existing mechanic to replicate what we wanted. Sometimes we looked to other games for inspiration and solutions, sometimes we just went with our intuition. An overall philosophy to making changes Space Hulk is an incredibly well designed game from the start. Newer Articles Older Articles Home.
Where we could, we opted to use existing game mechanics instead of adding something new. While this may seem small, it made a huge difference in how we approached things.
It’s been a long road to get to this point. I encourage you to try them out!

After every change, we’d play a number of missions to test it out. That didn’t stop us hullk making changes to the game so it played the way we felt it should.
We decided to start making small adjustments here and there to the rules to capture the in-game effect and feeling we wanted.
We wanted to make sure a small change here did not create an unanticipated impact over there. We took a hard look at the ones we were no longer using and got rid of those.
For each rule, this process varied in length. What follows is our current set of modifications. We were extremely careful not to disrupt this core design. We started out using the basic rules with no modifications.
For the most part, we just modified the things that didn’t make sense to us. We went over the ones we used all the time and made sure they still worked the way we wanted. Adding something here, removing something there Sometimes it took a half dozen games to work through a solution, sometimes it was done before the end of a turn.
I’m one of those that’ll cut my own.
