Use an 8x8 chessboard.
Use chits or miniatures to represent units.
There are 4 types of units:
Carriers, Warships, Subs, and Planes.
Each player starts with:
Each player places one unit on each square of his back two rows.
Units may not stack.
Players share a common deck.
The deck contains 2 of each card listed.
Players take turns.
Each turn has 3 phases:
Draw 3 cards.
If the deck runs out, shuffle the discard and draw from it.
Max hand size = 5 cards.
Discard excess cards.
Play (discard) a Move card to move one of your units.
The Move card must be useable by the unit.
For Example: Only Planes can use the patrol card.
The move card has a number.
This is the number of spaces the unit moves.
Moves can be diagonal or orthogonal.
Boats cannot move through other boat units.
“Knight” type move cards allow a man to move like a knight in chess.
Instead of moving just one unit in any direction, you have the
option of moving one or more units forward the indicated number of
spaces using a single move card.
Play (discard) an Attack card to have a unit attack.
The Attack card must be useable by the unit.
For Example: Only Warships can use the destroyer card.
The attack card has a number.
This is the range of the attack.
Attacks can be diagonal or orthogonal.
The enemy unit that is the target of the attack is automatically
destroyed and removed from the map.
Your opponent may play certain Defense cards to negate your attack.
