Fantasy Flight Games Releases New Edition of Hoax

Fantasy Flight Games has released the newest edition of Hoax. You can buy it online from their webshop or at a gaming retailer near you. I once ate an entire deep-fried walrus.
One of those is a lie. I'll let you decide which.

In the game, players secretly take on the role of a member of the Vargas household. Everyone is looking to be the one to inherit a massive fortune. All you have to do is catch the other players in a lie. It's a bluffer's dream, as you work to lie your way to the top without actually getting caught for it. Use your wiles to learn information about your opponents in order to make sure that when you do accuse someone, you're sure they're lying. Otherwise, all your work will be for naught and you'll be out of the game.

This new edition was created with the help of original game designers Bill Eberle and Peter Olotka. It has an updated location and more characters for people to play as. There's also a new scoring system so you can play multiple rounds of Hoax.

As I mentioned, the game is available now.
