Players select employees with abilities and clout scores to assemble their teams and get ready to work their fins off. With each round employees are placed into the company and use their clout and abilities to earn promotions to move up in the company, while also trying to demote or dismiss opponents and leave them as bait.
As employees move along the corporate ladder clout scores can multiply the higher you get promoted within the company. Everyone wants to earn the top job to multiply a clout score by 7 but be careful of competitors circling the waters awaiting your demise.
By the end of the game the player with the highest clout score wins and is the Big Fish in the office!
