There are a lot of games that cover the theme of starship combat. There also happen to be a bunch that are fast playing card games. Most are simple and have very similar mechanics. They make great beer & pretzel games. "Launch torpedoes!" Please add titles I may have overlooked.

This is the title that sparked my interest in these types of games. I did not own a copy myself and spent a while trying to locate one.

Despite all the pretty ship cards, spaceship combat is largely an abstraction in this Reiner Knizia game that descends from Grand National Derby and Titan: The Arena.

An ok game, but with so many other better games out there, I don't find it worth the effort. But if you are into Starship Combat Card Games it’s worth a look. GMT Games was overly optimistic about the sales figures of this baby, so you should be able to pick it up cheap.

The ultimate sci-fi CCG. A game that requires so much planning and thinking ahead that it can make your head spin, but in a good way.

A great game I was sorry to see die, but at least you can buy it cheap from Third World Games or on eBay.

Each ship is represented by a card with a variety of ratings: attack, interceptors, armor, shields, etc. Ships move and deploy in Ranks--3 on each side. The difference in ranks between ships modifies the to hit number. Also, ships can protect other ships in a given rank making the protected ships harder to hit.

The PDF can be downloaded from LPK Designs for $5. There are pre-defined ships that come with the game, but you may well want to create your own ship specs.

Oh, come on. How can this not be on the list?

Cute game. Match your blasts to you cannons, fire at players who are next to you at the table, special abilities and John Kovalic art?

What's not to like?

A ship vs. ship game, each player plays the captain of a single starship in a close combat situation. Dog Fight: Starship Edition is a hybrid CCG/tactical board game. Action cards determine what your ship does, utilizing a unique mechanic system.

Basic rules pit any number of players each controlling one ship for a fast paced game. Level 2 rules add support craft and change the environment for a much more strategic game. Level 3 rules add space stations.

Transcendental vessels can act at NPCs, team and vendetta variants included in the rulebook.
