SQUID INC. (WizKids, 2 to 4 players, ages 14 and up, 75 minutes; $34.99)
In the search for a game theme that has never been used, this latest design by Ivan Turner, may win the prize. It seems evident that, in its beginnings, this was a game about business and competing to become Chairman of the Board but something “fishy” happened somewhere along the way. In this new release, the setting has changed from wood paneled boardrooms. Here, the premise is that you are a guppy (!) looking to become the “Big Fish” in the shark infested waters of big business. To do so, players will amass an army of workers to help them generate “Clout” to reach the upper levels of the Corporate Ladder in Squid Inc.
