Description (Specifications)[edit]

Ahzanti High Lightning is a game of close-action combat between individuals on board a large military spaceship.

  • The game covers the weapons and personal abilities which can reasonably be expected aboard a starship; tactics and strategies then become the realm of player input. A variety of scenarios are provided, and many more can be generated using the components included in the game.
  • A "square and counter" supplement to Traveller, similar to Snapshot. Each turn is 15 seconds, each square 1.5 meters, counters represent one individual or animal.

The boxed set includes:

  • Fourteen full-color deck plans, on large sheets
  • 240 die cut counters for adventurers and defenders
  • Combat Chart
  • 44-page Rules booklet
  • Supplement 5: Lightning Class Cruisers
