Prepare For Battle!

Beams of coherent light slice through the ships hull as her captain barks out orders to his crew. We're not out of this yet, all stop, bring us about and ready all forward batteries to fire on my mark... Fire!

Firing Solution is a table top fleet level tactical space combat and campaign game where player field fleets of ships, sending them into battle against their enemies.


  • Space combat your way... In two or three dimensions on hex grids or measured using any flat playing surface, all without complicated rules or math.
  • Easily field fleets of ships in battle using any of the 30+ included ships or quickly design your own using the included construction rules.
  • Damage types and defenses use a rock / paper / scissors approach with each damage type having an appropriate defense. Empires may specialize in particular technologies but no single vessel can excel at everything.
  • Tactical Data Link squadrons, Escorts, other special equipment and ship orders add considerable depth to fleet tactics.
  • Command an empire in its struggle for galactic dominance with the included campaign system based on colony control and infrastructure.
  • The combination of ship elevation and roll status with directional defenses, individual weapon firing arcs and dorsal, ventral or spinal mounting options bring 3D battlefields to life without vectors or other complex math.
  • Enhance weapons by adding various weapon effects such as barrage, slow arming or spinal mount to alter their capabilities.
  • Unique damage system scales the severity of each weapon attack allowing larger vessels to dispatch small ships more easily while smaller vessels need to wear down larger targets with repeated strikes.
  • Use one of the four included Empires or create your own using a simple system allowing the creation of empires tailored to your favorite setting.
  • And Much More.

    Very very frustrating not to have a combat and wounding example for the ships. That is the only reason this rates a middling review. Really really want examples other than the ship building examples that come with the product or the free preview availa [...]

    This is a simple (not simplistic) easy-to-learn game of tactical starship combat (in two or three dimensions). It is customizable (both in the rules difficulty and the ship design); it is adaptable (large fleets or small), and it is fun (one playtest [...]

    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.
