Space Pirates: A Pencil and Paper science fiction game
I created a very simple game some months to be played with pencil, paper and a few dice. I and a few friends have enjoyed playing it. Originally, it was a game about Klingons raiding into Federation space, but I decided to make it available for the Kindle. So I've changed it into a more generic Space Pirate game. Basically, each player is Captain of a pirate spaceship, deciding how many of his resources to use up on each successive mission. When the game ends, the pirate who has earned the most loot (calculated as Glory Points in the game) wins and becomes Pirate King.
