Imperial Crusade Armada is a tactical space combat card game that uses cards to represent each ship on the tabletop. These cards have ship stats printed on them so that everything that happens during a battle can be tracked directly on the card with a dry erase pen. Battles between a few ships can be played in a couple of minutes or massive fleet battles can be played in about an hour.
Ship cards represent each ship in a player's fleet which are moved around the table during combat. The distances between each card on the table is used to determine the range when these ships fire their weapons. A ship card's position and facing determine what targets it can fire on and which shields defend it from attack. Damage, energy allocation, and system usage are recorded directly on each ship card with a dry erase pen. This is a print and play game so ship cards must be printed out and placed in card portectors or laminated to play.
Imperial Crusade Armada includes 16 different ships.
Time: 30-60 Minutes
