Post subject:  Bug Hunt rules + AVP additional mods


im aware there's a project here in place attempting to improve on prodos existing board game.

However ive given the bug hunt rules a try and enjoyed it alot however the rules don't support 3 way alien vs pred vs marines and the rules for preds are very limited so I decided to expand upon the rules set alot and have play tested this twice by myself and wanted to share with you guys for feedback. If you could give it a play test as well and let me know what you yhinj that would be great!

Rules for bug hunt avp version ... 1455997406

Additional rules by myself

Nickie's AVP mod

[ setting up the board: I found random tile generation cumbersome and I decided to just set up the board as I see fit with egg caches and doors in strategiccally equal places. I find randomising room tiles more exciting for the game.

Wow, these look really interesting! I'll try them out with my gaming group later this week and report back. It's very encouraging to see people experimenting with and modifying the basic rules for the game, keeps things from getting stale.
