These rules are based around the Alien(s) cinematic hack fests; and includes as an optional extra a few guidelines for adding the Aliens Versus Predator movies into the mix. The rules work just as fine when played as a solo game i.e. with a single player pitting his or her wits against a randomly generated, dice controlled decision making Alien A.I. Bug Hunt is also ideal for one or more players (depends how many squads of Marines you use) versus a Bug Master (BM) playing the Alien Hive or Predator team.

The default game premise is that an elite unit of Colonial Marines have been sent to investigate a missing 'shake and bake' colony of Terra-Formers - all Civilians. Recently, 'The Company' has lost all contact with the colonists on LV-426, and the marines have been sent to check what has happened to them... really similar to the 2nd Aliens movie.

Credit for these rules should also go to Pete Jones for the original game concept, a lot of which I used as a model to inspire me to write my own Aliens style game (and in places I borrowed mercilessly... with his permission). His friendly replies to my emails are always helpful and generous.

Note: Upgraded version to Is This Just Another Bug Hunt rules.
