Cyboard games (cyboard.games) is creating this game for the two-player contest (see here 2017 Two-Player Print and Play Game Design Contest)

Art is by Skorpio (https://opengameart.org/users/skorpio). Do check him out, he's got some pretty nice art, and he kindly puts a very lenient license on it!

In Fleet Ambush, two players will take control of a fleet each, Humans Vs. Aliens. At the start of the game, both players construct a fleet of ships using square pieces. Your ships can be armed with many weapons, including ion cannons, fighter bays, turrets and more!

Once both players have constructed their fleet, the two fleets will battle it out the cold dark depths of space! Each player takes turns activating their ships, moving and then firing! You can also use your fighters to create a fighter screen, blocking your ships from your enemies weapon systems!

To win, you will need to disable all of your opponents ships, or have more standing at the end of 10 rounds. Let the best Admiral win!

Categories this game qualifies for:
Best new designer (this is my first game! )
Best new mechanic (unless someones seen this ship-building before?)
Best heavy game
Best game

All files complete! This game is contest-ready!

Rules and instructions are here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_ku9ZEaGKIpQzn1xJrnQQLCn...

and here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/18h-WMTEOyfyf5At1PZwqjYJR...

You can get the pieces here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4Wkz8HTY_kDc0tKNkt2bTZPRl...

I had a look, believe it or not, I'd never heard of it!

It does look very interesting. I love that kind of game where you get to build something!

Thanks for the tip!
