Lost Ship is a tabletop game for one or two players about the sacrifices and compromises made during an interstellar war. Created by the author of Westside, Deadball, and Comrades, it uses simple mechanics to tell the harrowing story of 40,000 lost souls’ journey home.

In this game, you are the executive officer of a stranded colony ship leaping from star to star in search of a planet to call home. You are responsible for maintaining the ship’s key systems, supervising the pilots who protect it in battle, and doing whatever it takes to safeguard the 40,000 travelers aboard.

You will track damage, duty assignments, pilot deaths, and the other ugly details of this odyssey across the stars. Your captain directs each battle; the pilots fight. All you can do is watch, pray, and record the chaos.

A game of Lost Ship tracks your journey leap by harrowing leap. When your ship arrives in an unfamiliar system, straightforward six-sided die rolls tell you what you find: fuel, parts, enemy warships, or—if you are lucky—a planet to claim as your own.

Welcome to space. Try not to die.

I enjoy this game, a little treasure to be had for sure! However I bought the POD copy and it didn’t have any of the Executive Officer Logs or Encounter Logs in the book for reference, still had to go on online. Just thought they should be included in the print book.

I am just digging into this new purchase, and I really like what I am seeing. Just a thought though... on the Lost Ship Spread pdf. Take a look at Maze Rats 4.3 booklet version. Your Lost Ship Spread is begging to be made like that to be printed front and back in landscape format and then folded down the middle and stapled for a perfect little rules booklet. I love that about Maze rats and this game would be perfect for that format too. Great job, I really like the art. Not too much of it, but sets the mood. Like original Classic Traveller.

Lack of a preview makes it a difficult purchase. Any chance of that being added?

Thank you for asking! I had forgotten to add the descriptive copy for this page—I'm so glad you checked and reminded me. Hopefully it answers your question.

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.
