Warships is an action packed starship
As commander you take
charge of your task force of Corvettes,
Frigates, Destroyers and Cruisers to run
covert shadow missions thru the Cyprian
Rift. Those bold enough to enter the
precarious rift have the chance to explore
the mysterious pocket universe that lays
Mysterious dead worlds
and lost ancient technology abound in the
pocket universe, ripe for the picking.
However, yours isn’t the only Faction
intent on the prize! You must battle your
way through enemy ships intent on your
destruction while traversing a bizarre and
unpredictable maze of conduits filled with
incomprehensible galactic events,
obstacles and obstructions that will
challenge your tactical genius every step
of the way.
In the Cyprian Rift is
where your Legacy will begin…or where
your name will be forgotten; another
insignificant casualty to the galactic
battle for power. Do you have what it
takes to enter the rift? More importantly,
do you have what it takes to survive!?
Warships is a tactical miniatures
game that incorporates starship
miniatures, hexgrid gameboard, dice, and
various card decks. Fleets are custom
designed by using Modular System
Compartments which are a revolution way of
retrofitting ships so they can be modified
and upgraded quickly with a variety of
different systems and equipment. Each ship
can be customized as you like: the choice
is yours! Players use their tactical
skills by maneuvering their ships and
using their abilities to outclass and
destroy their opponents or by completing
challenging missions before their enemies
can. Tactical cards can be used to perform
daring actions, specialized attacks, or
bold maneuvers while Spatial Phenomenon’s
add depth and variety to each game.
No two games of
Cyprian Rift: Warships will ever be the
