Space Hulk is a board game for two players by Games Workshop. It was released in 1989. The game is set in the fictional universe of Warhammer 40,000. In the game, a “space hulk” is a mass of ancient, derelict space ships, asteroids, and other assorted space debris. One player takes the role of Space Marine Terminators, superhuman elite soldiers who have been sent to investigate such a space hulk. The other player takes the role of Tyranid Genestealers, an aggressive alien species which have made their home aboard such masses.
The first edition was released in 1989 and a second edition in 1996.
Thirteen years later in 2009, in a limited release, a third edition was released and sold out almost immediately.
Five years later in 2014, a fourth edition was released, which also sold out!
I have been playing quite a few games of Space Hulk recently. Not only using the missions from the mission book, but also some games with Orks and Imperial Guard.
