Fleets – Card Game Idea

A while ago I played around with a couple of ideas for some card games. At the time I was thinking of CCG’s but these could just as easily be non-collectable games as well. Both games were pretty simular, though with different settings. Fleets was based around capitol ships in space, fighting each other by deploying fighters, drafting other ships and capturing planets. Here are a few notes I made at the time.

Type Rarity Example 1 Example 2 Use
Capital Ship Fixed Human Melask One ship per player, one per race
Planet 1,2,3 Phobos X-P33 Colonise/Capture planets to win the game?
Ships 1,2,3 Frigate Dreadnaught Attach to Capital Ship to make fleets
Fighters 1,2,3 Interceptor Raider Attach to Capital Ship to make fleets
Personalities 2,3 Major Castle Commander Squall Attach to Fleets/Ships/Planets for bonus
Crew 1,2,3 Expert Engineers 107th Infantry Attach to Fleets/Ships/Planets for bonus
Upgrades 1,2,3 Enhanced shields Laser cannon Attach to Capital Ship to upgrade
    Rules
1   Deck of 30 cards per player
2   Planets are seperated and shuffled into universe pattern
3   Capital Ships are played in front of the player
