Games Workshop Bring Back Lost Patrol Board Game

March 16, 2016 by brennon

Games Workshop have announced via ICv2 that they are going to be bringing back Lost Patrol, a board game where Space Marine Scouts have to take on ambushing alien Genestealers…

Lost Patrol

“The new game is a two-player game with one side taking on the roles of Space Marine Scouts hunted by the other player controlling a group of fearsome Genestealers. Played out on a dynamic, tile-based board, the squad of Marines must navigate a jungle that moves and changes as they travel the board.

The game has updated rules from the original 2000 game and is just as fast-paced as the original, playing in about thirty minutes.”

Behind the rules of the original game game we had Jake Thorton. Alas he doesn’t have much to do with this re-make of the game. So, what do you get inside the box?

  • 5x Space Marine Scouts
  • 12x Genestealers
  • 6x Infestations
  • 30x Map tiles
  • 3x Dice
  • Rules

This sounds like a neat cut down tactical board game experience well worth exploring. Did you play the original game?
