Minimal Space Combat is “a very simple space combat game” that I have tinkered with over the years. As I’ve added different parts to the original game (without expanding on the original rule set), I wanted to create a single document that covered the entire collection of Minimal Space Combat articles that I’ve written.
Besides being a simple, fast, and fun game, Minimal Space Combat can be used to introduce new people to the world of wargaming and space combat. Being a simple game, it’s perfect to give to new gamers, let them read it over and play a game. Most general concepts in wargames is introduced and discussed in the Tutorial.
