Space Hulk Board Game

Game Information

Game Name
MSRP $

Games Workshop Ltd.

From the depths of space an ancient vessel drifts slowly towards the Imperium of Mankind - a space hulk. Within its confines, untold thousands of Genestealers slowly emerge from hibernation. The Space Marines must enter the cramped corridors and tomb-like chambers of the ancient ship to defeat this alien menace.

Space Hulk is a board game for two players, recreating the battles fought between the Space Marines and Genestealers. One player commands the Space Marines as they carry out deadly missions in the ancient Space Hulk, and the other commands the horde of Genestealers opposing them. Space Hulk's fast-paced rules simulate the tense atmosphere of a mission deep inside the cramped confines of a derelict space hulk, where split-second decisions are needed for victory.

Probably the best two-player game ever. The asymmetrical design is easily digested and requires no previous 40K knowledge. It's just man versus nature, order versus chaos, in its most primal form. The overwatch mechanic in particular is outstanding, because it makes for tense shootouts that are almost cinematic. Definitely a classic.

The obvious bit about Space Hulk, is that it is the 30year old Aliens movie condensed into a 30 year old board game.

But, this is largely a puzzle where you figure out the best routes using the best pieces in as little moves as possible, while the randomness of dice frustrates your trajectory.

Good, classic game. Yet it is much more of an enjoyable experience as a video game nowadays.
See: Space Hulk Tactics.

It's not that Space Hulk is amazing as a tactical 2 player game, it's that no other game has come anywhere close to creating the experience Space Hulk does. Best in class.
