Fun, quick and sneakily strategic! The next batch of Bots is ready for the production line! Simple but fun game based on playing from a hand of cards representing robots. Each has special powers and affects the stack (stak) in different ways, making it more tactical than a simple rock-paper-scissors exercise.
Every Bot is unique - Some are destructive, some manipulate the other cards. Some are just plain quirky. They all affect the game differently. It is novel - The game is played vertically; where cards are in the Stak are as important as what the cards are. A fully open turn structure lets you combine and repeat actions as much as you are able to on your go. You are always involved - Your revealed cards can trigger decisions and you can play from hand to defend yourself, even when it's not your turn. It is quick to learn - But it takes a while to master how the Bots interact and the shifts in power that they create between players. As you get more competent you can add more Staks, more rules and more Bots. Play how you want. After playing thousands of games, I am still encountering new situations, combinations and tactics. Great multi-player game dynamics - Plead rationally with your attackers, victimise players, bear grudges and expose others' weaknesses.
