Terrible & Waste of Money

To begin, there is little to no introduction/instructions. You are just placed in a strategic game that gets extremely boring extremely quick when you have no idea how to play it. I have no idea how this game came up on my suggestions it is terrible. I suggest you take my advice or you’ll see and lose your money. I’d rather watch my little cousins play fortnite than play this game.

Great time management puzzle game

Almost a minimalist puzzle with funny writing text and a learning curve. Once you figure out the pace of the “Dupes” and the capacity and speed of the stores, you got it!
