Pretense is a game night social metagame, essentially a game that you play DURING other games. You have a secret role and a secret objective, and if you accomplish it, you gain a point AND you steal someone’s role. If at any point, the objective shown on your role card is completed (for example: if you are The King and someone sits in your seat), reveal the card and announce the objective that was completed. With your role you can try to gain more points and more roles. The game plays from 2-12 and is great on a good-sized game night with about 5-6 people.
For 2-12 players age 14 and up. Playing time is as long as your game evening. See an over view from Board Game Network here:
