It was a terrific game, and the boy insist that we "play it every day!" Sammi, a little more articulate, being three years older than Gavin, commented that she "liked it even better than Space Hulk!" High praise indeed. I must say that it was a different and more fast paced experience. Genestealers being able to move 8 spaces was frightening! Furthermore, their three armor made them tough to get rid of.
The only changes I made were that I removed the blip tokens and let them Spawn more then they would have been able to in the actual game. Also, both were the alien player (usually it is only one Alien Player and three Marine Players). I think this is a good mix for playing with younger gamers, as the Alien Player's responsibilities can be a bit overwhelming. I will most likely let them spawn 2 per round next time, however, as this was a bit of a cakewalk. Plus, a little more obstruction to the goal might be a good idea.
