Having bought the recent edition of Space Hulk I decided to blow the dust of the old collection of 1st and 2nd edition stuff.

Amongst the floor tiles is a set given to me by a friend. He had purchased another mini-game inspired by the Advanced Space Crusade Scouts that revolved around Scouts from various Chapters fighting each other for artefacts aboard a Space Hulk.

I have been trying to remember the name of said mini game. My friends and I seem to recall it being called Space Marine. I remember this to be the name of the original infantry expansion to Adeptus Titanicus however.

Can anyone else help jog my memory?

it's a fun game. it came with 4 scout squads of 5 men, and can easily support ANY number of players provided everyone has a squad of 1 sgt, 1 heavy bolter and 3 bp+cc scouts. if you're low on players (ie 2), have each player take more than 1 squad. with a lot of players, teaming up (and betraying!) with other players is wicked fun. nothing like having your ally slam 3 doors, 2 cave-ins, two frag grenandes and a genestealer onto your final scout when he's making the final run home with the last artefact =C)

check with the house-rule on boardgamegeek. using space hulk doors and scratch-made cave-ins is fun (adds to the 3D effecet), but keep the relevant cards out of the discard pile until the obstacles are destroyed. otherwise the discard deck, which get shuffled back into the draw deck, leads to the gameboard being CHOKED with doors and cave-ins.
