A game of missing with torpedoes

Sploosh! is a 2 player game about submarine combat using hidden card placement and an action order system.

At the beginning of the game players will:
- place their convoy cards to show the 6x6 playing grid
- place their Island Destination cards according to the placement rules

Each turn players will:
- Secretly give their Convoy a movement order
- Alternate playing sonar contacts on the playing area following placement rules. Some of these sonar contacts are fake.
- Reveal all sonar contacts once both players have placed them all.
- Move their convoys according to the hidden movement order
- Resolve all submarine firing according to submarine initiative order, tracking all damage for scoring purposes.
- Take back all sonar contact cards and start over until a Convoy is destroyed or both convoys have reached their destination islands.
