ORBIT WAR is a stylized game of tactical space combat in the 21st century. It can be played by two, three, or four players. The playing board consists of eight concentric orbits around a central body; this central body represents a star in all games except for the invasion scenario, in which it represents a planet. One orbit is shown filled with debris; this is an asteroid belt (radiation belt, if around a planet).
There are four games in one here. The BASIC GAME movements are orientation and firing; regular movement in orbit is automatic and requires no expenditure of energy units. In the ADVANCE GAME, the additional elements of warp speed capability, deflector screens, and space mines are added. In the TOURNAMENT VERSION, it becomes possible to capture enemy tankers, inflict partial damage rather than automatic destruction; and to win, one must not only destroy the enemy flagships, but also retain enough energy units to get home oneself. Missile weapons may be added (long distance weapons with delayed effect). Lastly, an INVASION SCENARIO is included, in which a small fleet having the advantage of operating from a planet defends against a larger fleet with more firepower.
Comes with a small sheet of 60 die cut counters and a 17" by 22" folding map printed on very light cardstock.
Note: The rulebook is 5.5" by 8.5" in size.

There is something very special about an Alderson Yards built ship.
Is it the utilitarian style and comfort of our ships?
Is it the meticulous engineering and design?
Or perhaps it's the reasonable price and the numerous types of vessels we build. That something special goes beyond what you can see or test for. It is a feeling of trust and well being. You know Alderson has a reputation to defend and Alderson Yards will not allow any mistakes to tarnish our image. None.
This catalog contains over 15 of our most popular and useful ships for personal or commercial usage. The information is usable with the Other Sun's gaming system. So enjoy. And remember, Alderson Yards wants your shipbuilding to be fun and rewarding.
