Possibly the best title since The Penguin Ultimatum

It’s free game of the month time at Invisible City, and they’ve come up with a memorable title if nothing else. Uncontrolled Squid is a game for two teams, and the basic rules are so simple that they can be summarized in a couple of sentences. Every player starts with a full suit of standard playing cards. Each turn, without discussion, every player on each team plays a card face down. They’re revealed simultaneously, and whoever plays the highest card wins the round, unless there’s a tie, in which case the lowest card wins the round. The rest is down to psychology and group dynamics. Of course, there are multiple variants to make things more complex. As always, the dollar-to-enjoyment ratio promises to be high.
