Card game for 2 players.
Modern Naval Warfare Theme.
The game ends when a player goes to draw a card, and there are no cards left in the deck.
The player with the most deployed units at the end of the game wins.
Bases & Carriers count as 2 units each.
Players share a common deck.
There are 4 types of cards mixed into the deck:
Unit, Detect, Attack, Counter
Each player is dealt 9 cards.
Determine who goes first.
Players take turns.
Each turn has 7 phases:
1. Reserve Phase
2. Deployment Phase
3. Mission Phase
4. Detection Phase
5. Attack Phase
6. Counter Phase
7. Orientation Phase
The active player draws 3 cards.
Max hand size is 9 cards. Discard excess cards.
The active player may put up to 2 unit cards from his hand into play.
Units put into play are put face up in front of the player.
A player may put Attack, Counter, and Detection cards in play face
down, under units that can use them.
Cards stacked under units are called Option cards.
Note that deployed units stay in play from turn to turn for the rest of
the game unless that unit is destroyed.
If your opponent has no units in play, he must discard 1 random card and
you may draw 1 extra card from the deck.
The active player decides if he wants to attack a target unit of his opponent.
If a unit is chosen, this unit is the defender.
The active player picks which of his units is attacking.
This unit is the attacker.
The active player must play a Detect card that can be used by the
attacker, and that can target the defender.
The Detect card can come from the players hand, or be one of the attackers option cards.
The active player must play an Attack card that can be used by the
attacker, and that can target the defender.
The Attack card can come from the players hand, or be one of the attackers option cards.
The opposing player may play a Counter card that can be used by the defender, and that
can target the attacker, the attack card, or detect card.
The Counter card can come from the opposing players hand, or be one of
the defenders option cards.
If no Counter card is played, the defender and all its options are destroyed (discarded).
If a counter card is played, the defender survives and remains in play.
All Detect, Attack, and Counter cards played are discarded after being played.
The active player may attack with a second unit repeating the mission,
detection, attack, and counter phases.
The turn ends when the active player has no more units he can or
wants to attack with.
