Hoax - Announced was created by ubarose

The best liar wins in Hoax, a fast-paced party game of secret identities designed by, Bill Eberle, Jack Kittredge, Ned Horn, and Peter Olotka. When an unscrupulous business magnate meets an undignified end, a fierce competition for his estate begins. The inheritance is legally promised to whoever can prove that he is just as clever, deceitful, and ruthless as the deceased magnate. Therefore the greedy members of the magnate’s inner circle engage in a heated struggle to lie, cheat, accuse, outwit, and manipulate their way to wealth.

Hmm...Once again it seems that group was a bit ahead of their time considering it looks like Hoax is the game that at least inspired Coup.

I was hoping someone had come up with an elaborate prank about an upcoming FFG game that didn't really exist.

I thought this was the Magic Realm announcement when I saw the headline.

Nice! Hoax was mainstay of our group in college (early 80's).

And, Coup is a complete and obvious rip-off of Hoax. It's incredibly obnoxious that the designers didn't give any mention or credit to Olotka and crew.

I've never played this but I like the look of it, I like the sound of it... I'm definitely interested to hear more about it.

I'm really excited about this, and I'm glad it'll be a cheapie. It's another one of those weird Future Pastimes designs. I'm glad someone chased it down to reprint it.

The designer of Coup posted on BGG that Hoax was unknown to them until after designing Coup.

I'd like to give Hoax a try to see how they compare. Coup didn't grab me as much as some other games in the bluffing genre.
