Basically trying to “break” it by putting it through as many different situations as possible.

It’s been a long road to get to this rulevook. We took a hard look at the ones we were no longer using and got rid of those. I’m one of those that’ll cut my own.
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. I encourage you to try them out! We went over the ones we used all the time and made sure they still worked the way we wanted. That didn’t stop us from making rulevook to the game so it played the way we felt it should.
For the most part, we just modified the things that didn’t make sense to us. After a few games playing like this, we found certain situations would keep coming up that just didn’t seem right to us. I have no problem modifying an existing game’s rules to make it more enjoyable to play.
An overall philosophy to making changes Space Hulk is an incredibly well designed game from the start. Sometimes we looked to other games for inspiration and solutions, sometimes we just went with our intuition. That tends to balance it out and you don’t end up fighting for one side all the time.
The butterfly effect as it’s known. Fortunately, my friend feels the same way. Adding something here, removing something there Where the existing rules just didn’t capture the in-game effect we wanted. There’s no doubt about it.
What have we changed? We were extremely careful not to disrupt this core design. For each rule, this process varied in length. 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 rulebook to alter it into something new.
As if we have any experience fighting aliens in deep space. If need be, we’d stop a game and work through the problems until we had a workable solution and then start playing again. Sometimes it took a half dozen games to work through a solution, sometimes it was done before the end of a turn.
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. After enough games, the new “rule” was adopted and used from that point on. A nice feature of Space Hulk is that both players get to play both sides.
Written by Ron Saikowski, January 15, Some folks refuse to stray from the beaten path, some cut their own path. While this may seem small, it made a huge difference in how we approached things. We started out using the basic rules with no modifications.
You end up working towards a greater balance because you never know which side you’ll end up playing in a given game.
That’s when we stopped and took a few steps back. We wanted to make sure a small change here did not create an unanticipated impact over there. We decided to start making small adjustments here and there to the spsce to capture the in-game effect and feeling we wanted.
What follows is our current set of modifications. Where we could, we opted to use existing game mechanics instead of adding something new.
There are others, but these are the core modifications we use in all our games. After every change, we’d play spac number of missions to test it out.
