Fleet & Federation is a card game that allows the players to crew the Enterprise

Overview

Fleet & Federation is a tabletop semi-cooperative puzzle-solving card game that takes place in The Federation, which is most definitely not the United Federation of Planets and in which players crew the Enterprise.

Originally, F&F was a affectionate parody of Star Trek, but the game's diegesis has since evolved into a fleshed out, polydimensional world of its own.

Development

The game reached its full complement of (approximately) 170 cards in 2005 and has since been (intermittently) in a perpetual state of retooling and playtesting. Since then, I've also been adding cards in what will be an expansion titled Strange New Words.

A novel was started (and completed up to 50,000 words of terrible rough-draft prose) in NaNoWriMo 2009. Characters were made. Ideas evolved. Now the world of F&F has a lot of interesting extraneous details. A completely different novel (possibly an anthology of short stories in the same milieu) may be attempted in a future NaNoWriMo once I've accomplished more World Building.

In the meantime, I'm only a set of instructions away from demoing and regular playtesting the game...oh, and I have to insert new graphics into a bunch of old cards. And...and...
