PRESS RELEASE: “Deception” Seeking Support On Kickstarter
Trick-taking games come a dime a dozen, but “Deception” piqued my interest immediately when I learned that you needed to be a little like Sherlock Holmes to deduce a player’s identity. That mystery factor found in some games like “Battlestar Galactica” is just a big plus in my book as I’m always up for trying to read tells and discovering who players truly are. “Deception” is currently seeking your help on Kickstarter with only 26 days to go, so if you plan on getting in on the action, now’s the time to do it.
Game Designer Jason Chan had this to say:
Deception is a trick-taking card game similar to Euchre or Bridge. But as the name suggests, this game is all about deception. Not only do you have to deduce which team the other players are on, you also have to mask your own identity through calculated plays.
Why Try This Game?
Blurred line between friends and foes
You’ve played enough games where you know who’s on your team. Now it’s time to try having to figure it out. You will decide whether or not to trust your friends’ innocent acts. You will gain your opponents’ trust knowing full well that it’s all part of the plan. It’s time to play as Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarty at the same time.
Incredibly simple rules, but impossible to master
The game centers on simple rules of trick taking and point accumulating, but the real game is built upon the personality and psychology of your players. To truly play Deception well, you must predict how your friends will strategize. Everything from logical deduction to card counting can be leveraged.
A game that evolves with you
Will you learn to bluff and trick your opponents with cunning plays? Will you learn to give out points to others for the greater good? As you and your friends develop more advanced tactics, you will all have to adapt to each other.
