Pocket Landship is a solo 9 card wargame set in a World War I-ish world. Command a landship (the original British term for tanks) to clear a sector of enemy infantry, artillery, and landships.
The player chooses either side of the 3 player cards to create either a single high powered landship with a main cannon and side sponsons, or a lesser armed landship plus a corvette class landship or squad of shock troops.
The player then chooses either side of each of the 6 enemy cards to create the enemy forces - a collection of enemy landships, artillery, infantry, and mine fields arranged in 2 rows of 3 cards.
Each turn, the player will roll 3 6-sided dice and assign each die to each of their cards to attack the enemies. Then, for the enemy turn, roll the 3 dice and assign them low to high left to right across the front enemy line, then take the assigned actions.
Each card has its own damage track. When a card is destroyed, it is removed from the game. Win by destroying all 6 enemy cards. Lose if the enemy destroys your landship.

Pocket Landship was entered in BGG's 2017 9 Card Nanogame PnP Design Contest.
