Space: the Game is a 3D Board game. It allows for real-time 3-dimensional movement and battle. it is a scenario driven strategy game of space conflict. Each game is handcrafted to give it a personal touch. The base rules of play are designed to create the thrill and anguish that would be experienced by a real fleet commander. You will have to make the hard decisions, and make them correctly to beat your opponent(s).
This document outlines the basic rules that apply to every different "scenario" in "Space: The Game". Although the winning conditions and player relations change greatly with different scenarios, the basic overall structure of play remains the same. This document clearly explains how the game is always structured into rounds containing the "same" 5 phases, which are in turn delineated as specifically as possible. Furthermore, most of the scenarios (indeed ALL of the non-expansion scenarios of the basic 2-player game) are largely focused on combat. The rules of combat are also the same in each scenario, and are written up in complete detail at the end of the document.
