Die Squadron is a card-and-dice based roleplaying game. The game uses a large number of custom dice pools and custom cards. The dice all are cubes and could be made from standard d6 with face stickers. However, it is notable that no print-and-play or even how-to documentation exists from what the various cards should contain or what all the dice faces should be. The game as presented is thus more of a theoretical rule set than a playable game.
Events in the game are primarily derived from random card draws. Combat in the game uses a complex dice pool mechanic that uses time phasing, tactical options, and variable effects - all determined by dice pool rolls.
