Deception, a card game


Deception is a card game for where players try to lie or tell the truth about other players cards.

Setup: remove all diamonds and clubs from a deck of cards(if playing with five or fewer players) Every player takes one card and holds it away from themselves so that only other players may see what it is.

Player Turn: On a players turn they may say one fact about one other persons card. The targeted player now needs to say if they were telling the truth or lying. If the target player was correct, they place the card they were holding face up in a score pile (each card acts as a point), and then they draw another card to hold face up. If the targeted player was wrong the player that told them the fact receives a point instead. Play continues on to the next player.

Multi-question: A player may also target multiple players with a single question, after a count of three, all players simultaneously give thumbs up, thumbs down, or if they are certain of the answer, withdraw their vote. (i.e. the question could be, there is at least one red card, and one player sees another player holding a red card, therefore they are certain it's true).

If there is either only one incorrect vote or all incorrect votes from players who did not withdraw, the asker gets a point. Everyone else who voted correctly also gets a point.

If all players were fooled, If there is are more than two fooled players, the asker gets an extra point, for each additional fooled player.

Example single questions: you are holding a red jack. Your card is black.

Example multi-questions: Both of your are holding red cards. One of you is holding a jack. There is exactly one red card between the three of you.

Questions can not involve the card you are holding.

Game end: play continues until one player reaches five points.
