Charge! Space Fleet Combat rules

Watermarked PDF
I can recommend Charge! on the following grounds, if they appeal to you:
1. It has a unique system for hitting the enemy, eliminating random chance as much as possible, giving players maximum choice and options. Damage is not random.
2. It is suitable for fleets against fleets because of the condensed rule system.
3. You can play it with whatever counters or miniatures you like. If you can differ ships sizes than okay to go.
4. It has a point system to design your own fleets. 
5. It is based on tactics and not on scissors-paper-stone differentiation, so it has more balance.
6. Movement and fighting is quick-paced. 
7. Ships do not survive without tactics because they are bigger, the big ships need to be protected by the smaller ones.
I have put more than 3 years of thought and effort into this game. I have experience with similar games since 1980 or so.

Charge! is a game designed for space ships (miniatures) fleet combat.
The rules are intended to be easy to learn and should work intuitive.
Dice rolls are required for hitting targets, but random chance extreme bad or good luck is
limited by a unique system.

The rules are designed to maximize player’s choice.
Players can run scenario’s and/or design their own fleets using the points cost system.
Moving ships is an easy step-by-step process. The weapons used are of a unique single
energy-converter type that can be fired in different modes, and players can choose how to use
them to make a difference in the space battle.

This rulebook also includes several optional rules. In my experience, attempts to improve
these type of games by adding more options, often unbalances the game. For this reason I
advise players, if they use the optional rules, to play each scenario two times, switching sides.

I have added extra Optional Rules in a Supplement.

18 pages, 15$ ??? This is fraud!
I'm not interested any more...
18p = 1,80$ IF and only IF there is something good in it.

Get Starmada for about 10,-$ !!! (80-120pp.)

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
