Inspired by both the re-release of Space Hulk and Erny's Place declaring this the month of Orctober, I decided to throw together a little rules-light space-dungeon bash. Something simple that I could run with two kids.
So, here's the rule set:
|In the dictionary, this is the picture next to the definition of "Rules-light".|
One post-it note for Orks, one for Grey Knights and one for blowing up barrels - which we wound up not using. So, basically two post-it notes is all we needed. Here's the basic rules:
Grey Knights & Gaz Orks
Move 2 squares 4 Squares
Doors Takes one turn to open Can only open on roll of 6+
Shooting 5 die, hit on 5+ 1 die, hit on 6+
Mele 2 die, hit on 5+ 1 die, hit on 6+, but lower by 1 for each attacker
Throw 3+ 6+
Now, I also needed to take into account that I've not yet opened my Space Hulk box acquired a few years ago. However, I do have the D&D board game Wrath of Ashardalon (as well as Castle Ravenloft). And, it comes with some pretty sweet dungeon tiles. Plus, I have Incursion, which comes with some pretty sweet stand-up doors. And I grabbed some barrels I had as terrain.
And cranked up the iTunes:
And got down to business:
The last remaining Terminator was able to take Gaz to win the game. A close run thing. Lots of fun!
I will also be posting a battle report in comic-book style, in a jif!
