Combat between Starship fleets of the far future.
STARSHIP CAPTAIN comes with: 9 good quality hex space maps measuring 20" x 15", 2 sets of cardstock ships (some 5" long) that make up the two opposing battle fleets, markers for Asteroids and Space Mines and rules and scenario booklets plus one d20.
After choosing the scenario to play each player takes the relevant ship cards, these show attack defense and damage charts. Damage is recorded on seperate sheets. Playing the game is in turn sequence with faster ships moving first, in alternate player order and slowest ships moving last. Victory conditions set by the scenario may be different for each side with points being scored for destroying or damaging opposition ships.
Overall the game is similar to Star Trek III (simplified) or Battlecars in space. Play is brisk and not overcomplicated even with large numbers of ships but mostly so big that it's never fiddly.
