Warp Skirmish is an abstract Wargame system that utilizes a mix
of board, card, dice and unit elements to create a system with
chess-like strategy, fog-of-war uncertainty and module
Presented here are the base mechanics and several modules that
are ready for play. The modules contain the game setting,
background , unit and card definitions and the rules that
augment or change the Warp Skirmish engine.

aspects are detailed in the module.

positions of the units involved.
1.3 The Cards
The players either draw from a common deck of cards or have a
their own deck of cards. The make up of the deck is detailed in
the module. The cards represent actions, resources, attributes,
and other aspects of the modules setting.
1.4 Victory Conditions
Each module will detail the conditions that need to be met for a

first. Each module will detail the exact Turn Sequence; the
basic phases are usually as follows.

unit and move them that number of spaces. The directions a
particular unit can move in, as well as other movement
restrictions, are detailed in the module.

marked as such and will have a number that will indicate the
range of an attack. Attack cards are often valid for specific
types of units. The player can then select a valid unit to

restrictions and reactions by the target, are detailed in the
