I adore this game. It’s like Risk meets Neptunes Pride but in bite-size, 5 to 15 minute long games. It’s been going for over a decade. I wish desperately that it would get an injection of new players.
It scratches the same itch that something like Polytopia does, but even smaller and faster. It has tactics, but it also has a social element - clever use of the chat box can win you games.
One thing it does better than any other game is the concept of tiered victory. If you’re in 2nd or 3rd place sometimes the best thing to do is concede to the person in the lead, “flagging” to indicate that you cannot place higher than your current position. You might turn what could have been a loss of points into a 0 or turn a 0 into positive points. I wish more games had something like this.
Anyway, I hope you’ll check it out. It’s totally free and while it only takes a a few games to get started it takes a lot longer to master.
