Malta! is an easy-to-learn, light strategy/group game for at least two players. On a modular board with moving, turning, and disappearing spaces, players vie for a good board position and a strong hand. On every turn, players draw based on their piece's location, play half their cards, and move.
They lose if they run out of cards during their turn or are on a space where they cannot move. The cards' effects vary from useful to nasty, and so playing more cards may be more of a curse than a blessing. As players get eliminated, will you be the only player to not lose?
