Dive into this thinky game that has a beautiful table presence. Balance control of the capitals against round specific goals like deploying units in a spatial pattern, planning certain actions, and making specific upgrades. The game moves forward whenever any player resets their actions, so time your actions wisely to anticipate scoring rounds. Watch out for the community controlled shark that can work both for and against you!
