From the Publisher:br/br/'Light Speed is a lightning-fast card game of space combat about identical teams of spaceships dropping out of hyperspace to do battle over an extremely important asteroid. Each spaceship is equipped with 1 to 4 lasers, and the lasers have 3 different quot;strengthsquot;br/br/The game is played in two stages. In the quot;fast roundquot; players play their cards onto a table, trying to position them so that their laser beams will hit either the asteroid (and thereby quot;miningquot; it) or other players (causing them damage). Once one player has gotten rid of all of their cards, the quot;scoring roundquot; begins.br/br/In the Scoring round, all ships of the same rank will fire at the same time. (All quot;1quot; ships will fire, then all quot;2quot; ships, etc.) If, after all the ships of the same rank have fired, a ship has more damage than it does Health, the ship is destroyed. Play continues through the ranks 1-10. Once all ships have fired, players receive 1 point for each point of health they took from their opponent, plus one point for each successful quot;miningquot; of the asteroid.br/br/Light Speed is part of the Hip Pocket Games series.br/br/Awardsbr/br/ 2004 Listed in GAMES Magazine's GAMES 100br/br/br/br/br/
