Art work looks promissing. But I can't tell from the screenshots what the heck is going on.

I've been away for awhile, but I'm back.

For a second I thought the thread was about me!

That game actually looks really interesting. I'd TOFTT but, eh, $5... and the reviews seem, I dunno, fake. They're too preachy.

Graphics look too good for me to pass up. So far I really like the game, it's kind of a mash-up between Risk and Life

There's wifi multiplayer too.

I'll give a more in depth review later

I'm enjoying it too.

I'd like to see a tap feature to accelerate things sometimes. I have a feeling the game would be twice as fast.

Overall a nice production. Simple gameplay tho you have to read the rules carefully.

I still have no idea what's going on in this game. I'm very curious about the game but I feel I need to know more. A video or a more in depth review would be awesome. The developer is very well known in the ds community with the cooking mama and other mama games. Thanks to whoever takes the time to break it down further.

It's like a card game mixed with a Risk alike game.

You play just 8 rounds. You have to manage 5 traits (Health, Mind, People, Love, Money) that may help you win a combat and thus conquering 2 points.

Let me explain one player's turn:

1. You get a wildcard that you can use or not (game help explains about them). If you use it strategically you may get an extra bonus point (e.g. stealing wildcard from both opponents).

2. Then you pick 1 of the 3 random actions that are displayed: you can add a point to one of your traits or fight against an opponent to get 2 points; it all depends on the kind of action that are drawn and the one you've selected (sometimes only combat actions are available)

2.1. 5 points in a trait will lock it and no one can steal it
2.2. you fight with a dice alike battle: if you get more points you win 2 points (you fight with as many "dices" as your total traits)

That's all. Just note that a wildcard can tweak a lot a turn...
