So a couple nights ago, I had a dream where my college buddies and I were into this little pen and paper strategy game about moving ships across from one side to the other, wiping out the others forces. I remembered enough from this dream that I had to get up and write out the rules. I haven't played it and indeed have no one to play with, so I don't know how fun and strong an idea it is, but it sounds good in my head, so I thought you could give me opinions. I currently have no intention of taking this further, it's more about getting my idea out there, but if it generates interest I may persue it.

The rules are a little incomplete, there may be key things missing, I'm not sure, and it may be structured wrongly, but I fit in as much as I could think of without ever having read any board game creation literature. So, without further ado, here is my idea. To summarize though, I like to think of it as the casualness of battleships, meets the strategy of chess, with the life point system of Magic the Gathering. I hope people like it and can give me feedback etc. =]

Please see the attatched text file for the full rules (I tried posting it here but the code tags just wouldnt display the starting position correctly)

Armada idea

Not bad at all, good concept, simple mechanics, and easy name to remember ;). I like the rules, it would be a great family game or for young adults, and it would work as a video game too. You do need to edit the current rules and make them complete, also the rule sheet itself looks kinda weak, it needs a design style, new fonts, etc. This looks like a rough draft of a good game.
