As time went on, we found our modifications to the game growing in number. I encourage you to try them out! We decided to spacw making small adjustments here and there to the rules to capture the in-game effect and feeling we wanted.

What follows is our current set of modifications. We started out using the basic rules with no modifications. A nice feature of Space Hulk is that both players get to play both sides. It’s been a long road to get to this point. 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.
For each rule, this process varied in length. There’s no doubt about it.
I have no problem modifying an existing game’s rules to make it more enjoyable to play. I’m one of those that’ll cut my own. That didn’t stop us from making changes to the game so it played the way we felt it should.

After every change, we’d play a number of missions to test it out. There are others, but these are the core modifications we use in all our games. If need be, we’d stop a game and work through the problems until we had a workable solution and then start playing again. That tends to balance it out and you don’t end up fighting for one side all the time. We wanted to make sure a small change here did not create an unanticipated impact over there.

Adding something here, removing something there After a spacw games playing like this, we found certain situations would keep coming up that just didn’t seem right to us.
After enough games, the new “rule” was adopted and used from that point on. We wanted to keep the overall feeling and pace of the game 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.

Sometimes we looked rulenook other games for inspiration and solutions, sometimes we just went with our intuition. We took a hard look at the ones we were no longer using and got rid of those.
While this may seem small, it made a huge difference in how we approached things. 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.
What have we changed? That’s when we stopped and took a few steps back. Fortunately, my friend feels the same way.
An overall philosophy to making changes Space Hulk is an incredibly well ruleboik game from the start. Newer Articles Older Articles Home. We were extremely careful not hluk disrupt this core design. You end up working towards a greater balance because you never know which side you’ll end up playing in a given game.
Basically trying to “break” it by putting it through as many different situations as possible. Sometimes it took a half dozen games to work through a solution, sometimes it was done before the end of a turn. The butterfly effect as it’s known.
For the most part, we just modified the things that didn’t make sense to us. Where we could, we opted to use existing game mechanics instead of adding something new.
