Captain Sonar Game
Dive! Dive! It's all hands on deck in this nerve-wracking party game of stealth and tactics. Write-and-wipe boards mimic various control panels of a submarine. Each team consists of Captain, First Mate, Engineer, and Radio Operator. The Captain lays a course and issues orders; the First Mate readies special abilities; the Engineer controls damage and maintenance; and the Radio Operator maps out the opposing team's movement to figure out where they are. As the Captains are forced to make increasingly difficult decisions, tensions run high, and discovery is inevitable but if your team out-navigates the opposing team and sinks them before they sink you, you live to fight another day! Play in real time to really raise the stakes! For 2-8 players; best with 8. 45 minutes.
Get on board a state-of-the-art submarine and team-up! Every role is important and the confrontation is merciless. Be organized and communicative! Because a Captain is nothing without his crew: the First Mate, the Radio Operator and the Engineer!
Captain Sonar is a teamwork game where cooperation will be crucial!
