Ruleebook time went on, we found our modifications to the game growing in number. We decided to start making small adjustments here and there to the rules to capture the in-game effect and feeling we wanted. 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.
Sometimes it took a half dozen games to work through a solution, sometimes it was done before the end of a turn. We wanted to make sure a small change here did not create an unanticipated impact over there. It’s been a long road to get to this point.
The butterfly effect as it’s known. We started out using the basic rules with no modifications. I have no problem modifying an existing game’s rules to make it more enjoyable to play.
We were extremely careful not to disrupt this core design. As if we have any experience fighting aliens in deep space. Sometimes we looked to other games for inspiration and solutions, sometimes we just went with our intuition.

Adding something here, removing something there Written by Ron Saikowski, January 15, Some folks refuse to stray from the beaten path, some cut their own path. Newer Articles Older Articles Home.
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. That tends to balance it out and you don’t end up fighting for one side all the time. 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.
Where the existing rules just didn’t capture the in-game effect we wanted.
Fortunately, my friend feels ruleboik same way. 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. We took a hard look at the ones we were no longer using and got rid of those.
I encourage you hukk try them out! 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 follows is our current set of modifications.

After enough games, the new “rule” was adopted and used from that point on. If need be, we’d stop a game and work through the problems until we had a workable solution and then start playing again.
For the most part, we just modified the things that didn’t make sense to us. A nice feature of Space Hulk is that both players get to play both sides. An overall philosophy to making changes Space Hulk is an incredibly well designed game from the start. Where we could, we opted to use existing game mechanics instead of adding something new.
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. We went over the ones we used all the hlk and made sure they still worked the way we wanted.
After a spxce games playing like this, we found certain situations would keep coming up that just didn’t seem right to us. What have we changed? There’s no doubt about it. For each rule, this process varied in length. Basically trying to “break” it by putting it through as many different situations as possible.
