Cunning Folk (Pre-Order)
NOTE: This is a pre-order for the reprint, scheduled to ship in March 2020.
Cunning Folk is a micro bluffing game for 2-4 players. You are townsfolk, hunting the houses of Ipswich for witches, good and evil. Look at a card and tell the others which character you see to use its ability. Of course, you could lie. Your opponents might call you out, but everyone should tread carefully: Wrong once, and the town suspects you of witchcraft. Twice, and you are ostracized! Keep your wits about you and—if you lie, do it well.
Designed by Jay Treat.
GeekDad reviews Cunning Folk
"It’s such a simple idea, but the play is fascinating. It’s quick, and you’ll end up playing several times in a row as you try to figure out when the other players are bluffing or telling the truth.
I’m impressed with the gameplay that designer Jay Treat has managed to squeeze out of just 13 cards." -Jonathan Liu, GeekDad
BoardGameGeek User Lowell Kempf (Gnomekin) reviews Cunning Folk
"At first, this looks like a deduction game. But it's really a game about bluffing, deception and lying your way to deduction."
