Hubbub has gone into hibernation.

Bycatch

A preview of Bycatch's card artwork and graphic design

Bycatch is a card game about flawed sur­veil­lance, impos­si­ble deci­sions, and the peo­ple caught in between, for 3–5 play­ers.

In Bycatch, each play­er con­trols a nation on the hunt for sus­pect­ed ter­ror­ists. The play­ers try to locate sus­pects hid­ing abroad using drone sur­veil­lance, and elim­i­nate them using drone strikes. Mean­while, they must shel­ter their cit­i­zens from the attacks of their oppo­nents. Who will gath­er the most accu­rate intel­li­gence and strike with the least col­lat­er­al dam­age?

The game is a self-ini­ti­at­ed project in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Brook­lyn-based design­er Sub­alekha Udayasankar.
