Browsing Barnes and Nobles gaming section (which seems to get bigger every time i wander through lately) I noticed this one on the shelf. Damn you FFG, you have ALL my money now.
Flipping through the rules now and going to give my first game a shot. I've never played a Warhammer product before, so I'm interested to see what my impression will be after I try this out. It looks pretty cool. The Aliens influence is obvious (and appreciated).
A quick trip to boardgamegeek showed me that Space Hulk started off as a board game. Any reason why they went the card game approach for this release? I like the compact size and solo-play option. Looks like the right size/time of play for something I could slip out when I'm in the mood for a quicker play than Arkham or Dungeonquest for soloing. Excited to give it a shot!
