Generic Outlandishly Big Spacefleets (GOBS) is a set of free and easy-to-play rules for huge fleets of starships. The author writes:
G.O.B.S.! is fast-paced and easy to learn. Record-keeping is minimal; in most cases, ships blow up rather than retaining damage. (A two ship game of G.O.B.S.! would be over pretty quickly. This game is about fleets, Sparky! We want explosions all over the place!) The length of playing time is dependent on the size of your fleets, but an hour or two should do it for most cases. Wanna play longer? Build bigger fleets!
