HOW TO PLAY

In Bacttle, you play as a bacterial species trying to survive in nature.

Your goal is to populate the board with as many tokens of your color as possible, and avoid extinction!

The board represents the environment and each token is a member of your species.

 Negative challenges threaten your life while positive challenges allow you to multiply.

Each turn, a challenge is revealed.

You will always have four trait cards in your hand.

Each turn you can play one, to defend yourself or to benefit from the environment.

Special challenges unleash the BACTTLE!

Use special traits to attack other players or to defend yourself.
