Space Combat Card Game
How Does It Work?
Each player begins with a selection of “ship cards” which may be
from one of the space empires of the universe or a mixed fleet from several
empires. Each player also has a selection of “action cards” defining
various means of attack, defense, and other functions.
When it is your turn, you want to attack and preferably destroy an
enemy ship. Select one of your ships to make the attack. If any of the
symbols on the ship card match the symbols on action cards in your
hand, you can fire those action cards at the enemy! For example, the
cruiser below can fire a photon card, phaser card, and drone card at the
target. The target ship may be able to use some cards (jamming, counterweapons)
to deflect the attack (or part of it), just as you may be able to
use special cards to increase your attack. Any damage scored is marked
on the target ship card with markers that block some of its weapons from
being used on the next turn. If all symbols are covered, the ship is toast!

Commander, fans of Star Trek, and fans of any starship game.
