Dinner Deception

Dinner Deception is a six player game about suspicion and lies. The concept and aesthetics of the game are heavily inspired by the manner in which tabletop games are played. A gathering of friends or relatives around a table for a ritualistic event reminded me of sitting down for dinner. The narrative of the game does a lot to explain the objectives and themes of the game. “Tonight, the most exclusive dinner party takes place and you’re invited. This is the centennial celebration for fanatics and enthusiasts from around the globe. A special, unique interest brings these good people together to enjoy fine dining and riveting conversation. One guest, however, hasn’t a clue what this convention is about and is simply here to dine and dash! Talk to other guests and attempt to oust the crasher before their meal is completely consumed and the centennial dinner is ruined by a hungry bamboozler.”
