Space Dreadnought 3000
Fleet-level space combat system, designed to allow players to stage multiple
combats between large fleets in a short period of time. The playing field consists of
several large hexagons (construction guidelines provided), with combat taking place
between fleets in the same hex. Record keeping is minimal, and no measurement is required.
Can be played with miniatures or counters. Background is provided for six races, including
fleet lists and photos of selected models.
A campaign game adds
a further dimension to play, as players strive to control supply planets and protect
naval bases. Booklet includes painting tips, record sheets, markers (must be photocopied),
and optional rules.

models to represent the different vessels and powers engaged in a battle, so long as
the ship codes are clearly displayed on their bases."
