More Info

No Lengthy Set-up: 

Have you ever spent more time teaching and setting up than actually playing the game?  No thank you. Set-up, play, and clean-up take about15 minutes regardless of player count! Simply play through one round and everyone gets it.

No Take-That Victims: 

Do you ever feel that as the [smartest, loudest, crabbiest, happiest] person in the room, you have a target on your face when playing “attack/defense” style social games?  Well, bring it on! When one or more players hit you with the meat sweats, you’re out for theround, but you get to keep the card… making you more powerful later on.

No Downtime:

Do you have trouble staying awake or keeping friends engaged while waiting for your turn? So long, sleepers… 90% of this game is spent in simultaneous play so everyone remains engaged.

No Point Counting:

Does “Stop looking at my score pile!” sound familiar? All scoring cards have two possible point values to eliminate “advanced” players from knowing everyone’s score before they do.   Ah, luck, the great equalizer.

Feedback and Playtesting:
