Falling 2014 Edition
This game is from an odd genre, real-time card games. Each of the players (except the dealer) is a person falling to his death. The goal is not to live, rather just to be the last one to go splat. The dealer continues dealing cards to players, eventually giving them ‘ground’ cards. But on the way down players can do all kinds of nasty stuff to each other to ensure their relative longevity.
FALLING is James Ernest’s original real time card game, in which everyone is falling, and the object is to hit the ground last. One player deals while everyone else falls. There are no turns, so players can play cards at any time, without waiting for their turn. The dealer sets the pace of the game, which only lasts about a minute and a half.
This is the 2014 edition of FALLING, featuring a new deck recipe and all-new art by comic legend Val Mayerik (co-creator of Howard the Duck). For those familiar with the game, “Push” and “Grab” have been consolidated into “Move,” and there are three new permanent riders: Anvil, Parachute, and Goggles. These new riders are optional, but add plenty of spice to the game.
FALLING was nominated for an Origins Award for Best Traditional Card Game in 1998, and was listed in the GAMES 100 in the same year. It’s been through several editions, but this is absolutely the best one so far!
