Braggart-A game we like a lot. A game of heroes, lies and unfortunate fish.

Braggart-A game we like a lot. A game of heroes, lies and unfortunate fish. There is always a need for a short game to fill in time after the big game has finished or waiting for one to start. Braggart is excellent and funny.

Publisher description:
You sit in The Heroes Return, a tavern famed for its heroic clientèle. You’re not a hero, but you talk a good game. You and your friends are holding court, regaling the crowds with your tales of derring-do. Can you fight your way through a drunken haze to concoct the best boast? The most believable? Or at least ones that are funny? Or will you be called out as the liar you are?

In Braggart, each round players play cards from their hand which each contain a part of their story to combine them into a compelling tale. Stories are by turns hilarious or awe-inspiring and other players can accept them or accuse them of lying, downgrading their boast into something much less impressive (though usually much funnier!).
