Hull Breach! is a new and unique game brought to you by NSB Games, a gaming company based in Rhode Island.
Hull Breach! is a Strategic Card Game (SCG) with wargaming tendencies – it takes everything we love about the two genres and presents it in one neat and affordable package.
Players – we call them Commanders – can head over to their local game store or our online shop and buy a pre-constructed deck of Hull Breach! cards. Crack the pack open and you’re armed with almost everything you need to play a game – the only other thing you’ll need is a handful of ten-sided dice.
A deck of Hull Breach! cards consists of 55 cards: a Station, two Module cards, two Stockpile cards, and 50 others. In a pre-constructed deck we have provided you with a healthy and effective mix of the different card types you’ll need to wage war against your opponents. They are Upgrades, Options, Modules, Marines, Ships, Events, Tactics, and Breakthrus. Once you have a few games under your belt you can mix and match cards from different decks to create your very own personalized fighting force!
The object of the game is to protect your Station – your home in space- from other Commanders while trying to capture or destroy theirs. Be warned – they’re trying to do the same thing to you.
There are many paths to victory in a game of Hull Breach! – are you the Commander who favors quantity over quality, or will you equip your ships with the latest, greatest, and most expensive technology that you can? Are you the Commander who relies on highly-trained Marines to take his opponent’s ships with daring close-quarters assaults, or do you prefer to stay in the shadows, manipulating events from afar? All these strategies and many more can be effective.
But just building your deck to fit the strategy you’ve decided on isn’t enough. Hull Breach! uses ten-sided dice to determine most results, from initiative rolls to weapons fire. Just because your Dreadnaught packs an impressive weapons array, they’re not always guaranteed to hit their target! You must also manage an economy with two elements to make sure you can afford your ships, guns, Marines, or technology. Lastly, you must rely on a bit of luck to draw the cards you need. Not every Commander gets exactly everything he needs on the eve of a battle – sometimes you need to make do with a bit of wit and audacity when your supply lines fail you.
Hull Breach! was designed to offer players a unique and fun experience that can be as casual or as hyper-detailed as you want it to be. Grab a deck, and we’ll see you out there in the stars!
