A super cool game, nicely written out and clear to understand. The layout is clean and fits the theme. Yes cute moonfish are cute.

I love the use of icons to easily make clear how many players and how long it takes to play it, together with the chart of play really helps out to make this a lovely experience.

Aw thank you so much! it was certainly an experimental project, glad to hear you enjoyed it!
