Surfers catch crabs - Because why not?

Some say Cthulhu is the one who controls the Moon. And as we all know, the Moon control the tides. You can’t explain that. But don’t get riled up, hold on to your sanity points. This is not about the great dark lord. This is a surfing board game. And we’ll get to that in a second. Some have said that Crabs are minions of Cthulhu, and that those who can gather the most of them will be watched over by the great lord Cthulhu. This is important. Crabs is the way to salvation. You want to be the very best that no one ever was. You got to catch them all. You. Not the others. You must stop the others from gathering more crabs than you, or else all will be for naught! The thing is, Cthulhu is angry, and he wants to cleanse the earth of those who disregard his will. His cleansing of choice is: The Tsunami. The Tsunami will leave nothing in its wake! So you need to catch the crabs and get back to shore and bring your crab offerings and hope the dark lord will grant you safety. Surfers Catch Crabs is a tactical. free for all surf-by, strategy survival game? Where you do simultanious actions to catch crabs in crab cages before a great tsunami comes and destroys everything. You will play moves and attacks to help you with your goal, which is to catch the most.
