BLIND PLAY TEST of starship combat game, in the vein of Starfire, Starmada, Star Fleet Battles, or X-Wing. Maneuver carefully and blast the enemy fleet to smithereens!

Combat elegantly resolves an entire barrage of fire, including hit location, with a single roll of the dice. A simple ship design system covers everything from tiny fighters to massive arbiters, built from components such as capacitors, Gauss guns, inertia beams, shields, targeting systems, and whirlwind launchers. Ships lose functionality as parts are blown off until the reactor goes. Movement is Netwonian in 1.5 dimensions, so you can drift sideways or even backward -- just be careful not to get going too fast!

There will be two tables of 4 players each.
