It is, in part, inspired by and based on my previous game CEO of TEA.

Needs some writing spaces and implements, plus a d6.

Comes with a print-friendly pdf version of the game, as well as docx and txt versions of the game for further accessibility, options, and flexibility.

At first read, it feels like your choices don't impact if you win or lose. And if I can math right, 1 out of every 81 games are going to lose in four turns no matter what you do?

I think you need to make stats mean something more than just the score and give the player some agency.

You have a point. I will try my best to review and revise this game without straying away from the 200-word formula as soon as possible.

The game has been updated! Feel free to check it out!
