And Time Passes


"Until we can manage time, we can manage nothing else." - Peter Drucker.

In this game for 1 to 2 players, you have to manage your time to be the most productive player without exhausting yourself. Both players share opposite sides of the same timeline causing your actions to affect the other player and vice versa. Each card has 4 productive activities and 4 resting activities; placing these cards beside, on top of, and underneath each other will allow you to bump up your productive score while keeping the other player as unproductive as possible. Will you master time management or will you exhaust yourself trying?
