Choose your starting guppy, then use an all new Experience Point based Drafting System to buy upgraded bodies and all manner of new parts for your Guppy. Quickly ADAPT it to become the most powerful Master Fish in the sea with any combination of aquatic bodies and parts you can muster. ...battling the other Master Fish to the death along the way. For there can be only one Master Fish in this ocean. A.D.A.P.T. is a card game for 2-3 players, that plays in 20-40 minutes, and requires a full set of polyhedral dice (d4, d6, d8, 2d10s, d12, & d20). Lightweight, light hearted, and entirely unique. We're certain you've never played anything like it before. Will your Sailfish, with a Clownfish Tail, poisonous Lionfish pectoral fins, and Anglerfish Light Node, followed by a school of fish he commands, be the last Master Fish alive? Will your Dolphin, with the armored scales of an Arampaima, the mouth of a giant Sea Bass, the bioelectricity of an Eel, and the tail of a Thresher Shark prove victorious by ramming other fish with its lethal Swordfish horn? OR Will your Great White Shark, with the spiked skin of a Puffer Fish, over-sized brain and a regenerating heart, be the last fish swimming by leaping from the water with its Flying Fish wings for a diving sneak attack from above? The possibilities are endless! With Octo, Fantasy, Reptile, and Mech expansions also available, there's no reason that your Giant Squid with a the wings of a Pegasus, and claws of a dragon, can't claim victory through use of torpedoes from inside its tortoise shell. Each time you upgrade your fish's body, or add new parts, it becomes more powerful, lives longer, and gains new special abilities! Life under the sea, just got much more interesting!
