Poll: So, are you REALLY playing this with your girlfriend/wife?
1. Seriously, your wife/girlfriend plays this with you?
yes
no
2. Are you sure she is not just indulging you in the hopes you will grow out of it?
of course
well, now that you put it that way...
not really
I said that she doesn't want to play it with me, why are you torturing me with further questions??
3. Are you lying that she plays it with you (even though she doesn't) just so you can make other geeks who shelled $100 for an overpriced paper weight jealeous?
OK, ok, you caught me.
Of course not!
LOOK, SHE DOESN'T PLAY IT WITH ME! She hates it, she doesn't want to look at it, she can't even bear seeing it mingle with my other boardgames. OK?
4. Finally, are you the kind of guy who answers to silly polls such as this?
Yes
No

Yep, she's playing with me. She admitted after the first game that she had, in fact, just been humouring me all along and had no intention of really enjoying it, but is now insisting on playing the rest of the campaign.

Space Hulk is for EVERYONE.

When I opened my copy of SH, there was no girlfriend/wife included. Do you think I should contact GW and complain?

My wife has so far played one game of Space Hulk with me. She played the stealers, and of course she won. I thought her interest was minimal, but yesterday she revealed that she had been thinking about marine winning strategies and expressed some vague interest in playing as the marines.

That sounds almost euphoric, right? But here's what's going to happen: She'll play one game as the marines, lose, hate the game, and never want to play again. If I'm lucky, I might get two games out of her before she swears it off (but that's okay, I've got others that I can play with).

I've been informed that we are to play Suicide Mission over and over until she can complete it as the Marines, and then we can finally move on to Mission II.

I've also been told to hurry up and finish painting it, so we can play more Race For the Galaxy and Le Havre as well.

Wait... You got a wife AND a girlfriend? So that's where mine wandered off to... You know they are bound to find out about each other, if they don't already seeing as how they were in the same box...

My fiancée didn't care for all the dice rolling, but she's more than willing to trade me a game of Space Hulk for a game of Crokinole or Race for the Galaxy. And that's why our relationship works.

Yep me and the girl have boardgame night every friday and space hulk has found its way in as a quick game before something longer(Fury of Dracula, Warhammer Quest, etc.) or matched with another quick game of Last Night on Earth. She is also helping me paint as another poster stated. She got it for me for my birthday and thought she would only play one game of it. She didnt really like the first game but wanted to play again because she is ultra competitive. Now she has a favorite Terminator.

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you… And I will beat you.

Staged or not, she's sitting near a game of Space Hulk with a content look on her face. You won't be seeing that at my house...
