Crab Boil: Tactics was made in two weeks.

Crab Boil: Tactics is about crabs battling crabs, as they scramble to escape from an ever-rising pot of boiling water.

Build a deck from over 50 unique cards as you scuttle, leap, bomb, unearth, collect and conquer a randomly generated, grid-based 3D world. Be mindful not to destroy the ground you’ll need to walk on later! Hey, what are these crabs even fighting about?

Not sure what a card does? Try using it! If you get trapped, don't worry; dry yourself off and try again. You'll meet friendly crabs along the way!

After each round, you can pick a new card to add to your deck, including an exclusive Special Card used by a rival crab in that round. You can also elect not to pick a new card at all… but who does that?
