micropul is a strategic & tactical tile-laying game in which players are scientists trying to extract precious micropul matter from an energy core.
The game can be played as a solitaire puzzle or competitively.
Each player has a hand of tiles they must play optimally to keep a flow of new tiles coming in and if possible keep aside some tiles in a supply stack that will be worth more points at the end of the game. Drawing new tiles is done by activating catalysts, this part is very tactical.
During the game, groups of micropul of the same color will get formed. These groups can be claimed and will be worth a lot of points if they are closed at the end of the game. This is the strategic part.
Winning is done by balancing the tactical and strategic part.
