Long, long ago, the idea of the chain of command was created. You have the person in charge. Then you’ve got the 2nd in command. And so on down the line. We see it everywhere. Apparently on the FSS Polemus, the chain of command was replaced with “first come, first served” when it comes to who gets to be captain if the current one dies. Well, the captain’s dead, so it’s a race to be the first one in the captain’s chair in Storm the Bridge, a new card game up on Kickstarter.
In the game, players take on the role of crew members who have gotten some small popular support behind their efforts to become the new captain. As you make your way through the ship, you’ll be looking to recruit more people to your side, as well as trying to sabotage the actions and movements of your other players. Only one person gets to be captain, after all. Fight for control of the various sections of the ship and eliminate your enemies to make sure you’re the one who gets the fancy hat and tell everyone else what to do.
The campaign is up and running now with still 28 days left to go.
