About $1 or $2 dollars less than CSI and MM.

I don't know much about this game except Coup seems to be a streamlined version of Hoax. The original Hoax was published back in 1981 and this is the 2015 update.

BGG link: Hoax (second edition)

Edit: 10 June- it's back...zombie

I beta tested this and loved it. I reported to them it could use more players, even as promo cards, though.

I highly recommend this game!

I love this game as well. Was surprised that my group fell in love with it after the tepid response they gave to Coup. Hoax has structure where it's important and that leads to a very compelling game.

Coup was a bust with both my family as well as gaming friends so this has me interested now. I haven't looked at much information about the game yet - would Hoax be fun with a family with children?

PS I love your game designs.

Due to theme and characters, unless they changed the characters from beta, I would not recommend this with children, but it depends on your stance on this issue. One character is a mistress or something similar.

But again, a fantastic game!

I have a pretty decent write up here about Hoax vs Coup: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1546098/similarity-coup

As for family and children, what age are the children? There is indeed an implied mistress. One character is an Ex-wife, another is a Lover.

Shoot... I was too slow and missed the sale. I appreciate all the information though - thank you! Maybe it will drop again soon.

was $11+ yesterday, down to $9.79 now.
