Description Edit | History

Do you have what it takes to captain a starship in combat? Check out the fast-paced space ship combat game Dog Fight: Starship Edition.

This customizable sci-fi tactical/strategy game is as much about moving on the board as it is the cards you choose. You have simple actions to choose from and without the need of an RPG scoresheet you can manage your crew, your weapons, movement and your ship's special abilities. With 52 cards in each starter deck, choose your ship, chase down your opponents and see if you can out Captain the enemy.

In Dog Fight: Starship Edition each player controls only one ship rather than a fleet of ships or horde of characters. For 2 or more players. Three levels of game play, booster packs available. Each deck set (starter and deluxe) is designed for one player only; your opponents need their own decks.

Sample Turn:

Each player performs 3 actions, which are either drawing a card, setting a card face down or passing. Player A has priority in this example.

Action Phase 1
For this turn Player A sets 3 cards face down, which uses his/her 3 tiers. Player B does the same.

Action Phase 2
Player A's tier 1 card is flipped face up and resolves. Player B's tier 1 card is flipped face up and resolves. Tiers 2 and 3 continue in this pattern.

Action Phase 3
All cards played that do not last are discarded to the discard pile.
Priority player may draw 1 card from his/her deck for free.

End of Round.
