A profoundly goofy game that brings out the liar in everyone. I'm not sure exactly why it works as well as it does, though I have ideas. It might be the one-person-loses-everyone-else-wins victory condition, allowing players to heedlessly deceive each other without too much worry. It might be the ability to pass cards to others and mutate lies into increasingly layered falsehoods filtered through numerous people. But maybe it's best to not overthink it. It's a ton of fun.
