- Not locked in sets to specific scenarios (easier to re-use).
- Can be pre-filled with printable stats (no more handwriting).
- Full text is informative to new players (not abbreviated).
- Good for ad-hoc point-buy games (more on this later).
Below you'll see an image of the digital index card rosters I made, based on the original Boardgame Ship Roster format. Click here for a PDF version (including both blank cards, plus a page prefilled with each ship type in the basic game). Click here for an ODS spreadsheet (so you can copy, modify, and fill out your own stats).
One last thing: I also shrank the Basic Game Combat Table onto an index card. Print out a page of these, and then you can basically run the entire game from your stack of index cards. Click here for a PDF version.
