I can't redo the tutorial. I couldn't understand the game. I'm only able to stack my army in one hexagon, then i click next turn, and then I repeat the whole process...I didn't score it.

In attack phase you have to click on your tile and then on neutral/enemy territory.

Unfortuantely have to agree with previous poster - Game looks interesting but couldn't move to different hexagons. Didn't see any different attack or other phases either. Idea has potential, though

Difficult to tell what's going on. Red just steam rolls everything. Could have some more info on what happened during Red's "turn."

I'm afraid I really didn't understand what was happening :(

I couldn't understand the game but maybe I just did something wrong. But nice one!

It was very challanging to understand the rules! I think its very cool that you made a board game! But I think that you should spend more time on visual representation of a state of the board. I miss some visualisation of actions that I can make. I had to focus on reading instead of the board, which is confusing.

I loved it! It was like a mix of a card/boardgame. Reminded me of gwent from the Witcher 3 which I totally love. My hero smackey_the_crime_dog is currectly 3rd! :D Very cool game I really liked it!

It's difficult to make a strategy, but the concept have some interest.

Finally victorious on turn 54. Controls are very sluggish, because every action causes a page reload. Also, I do not know how to cancel an action. If I accidentally click the wrong hexagon how do I avoid being forced to attack with it?

Then there's the incomprehensible enemies. I get it, they don't attack in winter, but I could not see a pattern of actions during the other season. Is there even one?

This game seriously needs more explanations.

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
