CUDO Plays Recommends
This week CUDO Plays recommends The Manhattan Project: Chain Reaction.
In this fast-paced card game, players must race to build the most nuclear bombs! Each player has a hand of cards, each card can be played as personnel (scientists, engineers, or general laborers) or as an action to gain more personnel, or acquire the uranium you’ll need to make your bombs. Be smart with your card combinations and you’ll come out on top. This is a smaller, quicker game based on The Manhattan Project worker-placement game.
