Description Edit | History

From the back of the box:

The worlds of fantasy space are legion. Not all are friendly. The spider-like Neogi slavers, the cold and calculating Mind Flayers, the savage Scro, and others all build great ships of war to catch the magical currents of space.
Now YOU can face the perils of deadly combat in the depths of the void. This game accessory gives you the chance to storm enemy ships or brave a barrage of wizard spells that could tear your ship apart. This latest boxed set, the War Captain's Companion (sequel to the earlier SPELLJAMMER boxed set, Adventures in Space) contains the following:

Ship-to-Ship game: Tactical ship rules and two 22" x 31" mapsheets with an extra-large hex grid.
