Squid Inc (Pre-Order)
Preorder items are not yet available. The quantity available and "in stock" notations are the quantities we have available for advance order.
If there are other items on the order, the entire order will not ship until all preorders release.
Image, contents, and release date are subject to change.
While we will work to ensure you receive your pre-order on release day, given the ongoing effects of Covid 19 on manufacturing, supply and distribution, a pre-order does not guarantee you will receive your product during the first print wave.In Squid Inc., designed by Ivan Turner, and featuring art by Matijos Gebreselassie, you play a lowly guppy looking to become the company’s big fish by influencing employees at every level, and guiding them up the corporate ladder, no matter who ends up in your wake!
Each round you select a potential employee, with a name, special ability, and a clout score. You can use their clout to place your employees, and power up their ruthless abilities, or you can add the employee to your team. Once your employee makes it into the company, you’ll use your team’s abilities to earn promotions for each other, floating up the ladder as you demote or even dismiss your opponents’ employees!
At the end of the game, you’ll get points for the combined clout of your employees in the company, with multipliers the higher they’ve gotten on the ladder: x1, x3, x5, and even x7 for the top job! But be careful, as once an employee on your team gets there, there will be a world of sharks, octopuses, blowfish, crabs and more, all hungry for your downfall.
Will you end up chum in the water, or do you have what it takes to become king of the ocean’s largest corporation?
