"A Big Fish in a Small Pond."  No truer words have been spoken; no goal has been more important, in this solo board game, Big Fish/Little Fish.

Here, you start in the middle of a pond as a little Green Fish -- surrounded by opportunity (to eat and get bigger) and danger (to be eaten by bigger fish).

Your goal is to eat, and therefore, grow bigger, and bigger, and bigger, until there's no fish out there that can eat you.

It's a Food Chain World Out There:  As a Green Fish, you eat minnows.  As you grow into a bigger Yellow Fish, you now eat Green Fish.  Become an Orange Fish, you eat Yellow Fish -- until you grow enough to become the biggest (and safe from being on the menu) fish of them all, the Red Fish!  Reach that level, and you win the game.

The pond is murky, however, so you won't know what you'll encounter until you move to the next hex. Will that next hex bring you food (to help you grow bigger) or make you a menu item for bigger fish?  That's the mystery you'll encounter in this fish-eat-fish world you'll be living (and possibly dying) in.

There are 3 levels of difficulty to choose from:

1. HARD: Start near the bottom of the food chain and be a Green Fish -- with Yellow, Orange, and Red Fish seeking you out!

2. MEDIUM: Start in the middle as a Yellow Fish -- with only Orange and Red Fish seeking you out.

3. EASY: Start near the top as an Orange Fish, where only the Red Fish can get you! 

So, back this game and enter a world you normally see from a fisherman's boat. Experience how the wetter half lives (and dies).

Funds raised will go towards a manufactured version that will be offered in a future Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges

Since the PnP file is already available, the only risk is if the Goal is not met.
