About a year ago I was clicking around on the net and I found someone's personal blog with a description of an invented card game. It was played with a normal deck of cards. Face cards were ships, and they could be augmented with shields, phasers, torpedos etc... which were represented by the pip cards. I've searched for hours and can't find it. Has anybody seen this game?

I feel like i read something about this on a looney labs related blog; maybe wonderland or one of their personal blogs. Maybe a game designer's process blog? – Vynce Dec 12 '15 at 0:18
I seem to recall it was an obscure post on a personal blog, and the game inventor played it with his kids – chitselb Jan 7 at 18:18

Buzz Aldrin's Race Into Space is the space compact game with standard deck of cards.

Actually it is an old MS_DOS game that has nothing at all to do with this question. – bwarner Mar 11 '14 at 20:18
