Imagine a game based on expanding territory. On each turn, you can lay out another acre of land; forest, mountains, or sea. Or, if the land has lain fallow long enough, you can cause creatures to appear there…fish in the sea, elk on the plains, and fantastic creatures drifting through the mountains.
But the fish are all psychic, the elk are murderously xenophobic, and the mountain creatures thirst for blood.
That’s basically the game I designed on Sunday, thanks to some brainstorming between me and Nick. If you’d like to playtest it, email me and we’ll work out a time.
If it’s fun, I’ll post it here.
