Design notes (Rikki Tahta): I wanted a game that was short, analytical, highly interactive and could be played by up to 6 with full involvement at all times. You need to make temporary alliances to succeed, but ultimately you must kill or be killed. This is an analytical bluffing game that is nasty brutal and short.
