WARCOSM is an easy-to-learn and quick-paced tabletop game that simulates fleet-based space battles using either miniatures or flat counters.
Maneuver the enemy so that you can bring more weapons to bear on them. Find an enemy craft's weaknesses to maximize the effectiveness of your attacks. Warcosm's game mechanics encourage such tactics without overwhelming you with endless rules. This permits each player to control six, ten, or even a few dozen ships for scalable battles. Once you get the hang of the rules with the included battle scenarios, use the ship construction rules to build your own fleets. Decide how to arm your ships, the degree and types of hull protection, the types and power of drive systems, and whether or not to equip them with a number of other subsystems. The fate of the galaxy is in your hands. Command your fleets and lead them to Victory in the Stars.

Victory in the Stars - The Game of Tactical Spacefleet Combat
This add-on provides quick-playing rules for using assault squads. Board enemy vessels and either sabotage or commandeer them, but be ready to fight off defending contingent squads. Maintaining the same game mechanics as ship to ship battles, this addendum to the Warcosm game introduces new rules for assault craft, troops, hyper-shunting, and ramming, as well as new systems like assault bays, chaff launchers, plasma bursters, and tractor emitters.
