The game is designed for large groups (six or more) and is intended to be a humorous political excursion. Players all compete with each other for political influence, primarily gained by making other players sound foolish or incompetent (preferably both). Characters have three Attributes: Blood, Presence, and Volcano. All Attributes start at zero and increase (or decrease) during play. The game heavily favors narrative action, though a simple die roll is used to determine some Attribute modifications.
