Space Hulk

Steam have got Space Hulk on 80% off (I got it for 90% off just a few mins before the offer ran out)

TBS, based on another old Games Workshop boardgame, I've only played the first couple of missions but it's pretty authentic. For under £3 it's worth picking up I'd say.

I might have it in my parents loft.

It's a faithful port of the board game - the sense of impending death and tension is there.

And they've built in the random dice generator that matches the one you had at home where Storm Bolters are GUARANTEED to jam at the worst moment possible*.

*pretty much any time they jam becomes the worst possible time

Not Space Hulk related, but I spent way too much money during the Summer Sale.

Like always.

Space Hulk related, I remember waaay back there was a version for the Amiga which was just brutal. A lot of fun, it was. Might have to put this version on the wish list for the Winter Sale, despite all protests from my wallet.

If anyone does get this THERE IS AN UNDO BUTTON so if you accidentally end up facing the wrong way, you can undo the last action. Probably the best thing ever.

So if you are the Space Marines, you have objectives, the slower you move the more carefully you can position things, and the safer you are except that every turn the Genestealers get more reinforcements, so if you go too slow you get totally overwhelmed, and cut to pieces. Balancing pace of progress with security is really hard...

I love it
