A Curious Deck for Extraordinary Liars is like Jimmy Fallon's Box of Lies meets Charles Dickens, who is wearing whimsically mismatched socks. And there's a kid there with an onion for a head.

Jumbo Sized Cards!

The cards are more than twice as big as regular playing cards, so that you can make out all the weird details on the art.

How many cards are in the deck?

Each deck comes with 56 cards.

Where does the art come from?

All the art comes from my personal collection of surreal and unintentionally hilarious Victorian era cards and advertisements dated 1870 - 1910.

How many people can play?

2-10+ players

This is a lot of fun to play with just one other person (unless you don't like that person, then it would just be uncomfortable) or with a large group. There's no limit to the number of players who can join in.

How long does a game take?

It takes about 1 minute to learn the rules and 15 - 30 minutes to play, depending on how many players are in the game and how good they are at catching liars.

If this sounds like your kind of game, then you're a weirdo.

Risks and challenges

We've done plenty of play-testing and plenty of research on pricing and time-frames so that we can be sure to deliver A Curious Deck For Extraordinary Liars to you on time and without any hiccups. Ha, hiccups is a funny word.

There's no reason we should run late, but who knows, meteors and ghosts and stuff do happen. If meteors or ghosts or stuff should happen, we'll keep you informed every step of the way.
