What is Mantis Falls about?

Mantis Falls is a highly strategic and interactive game for 2 to 3 players. Players must use hand management, cooperation, and deception to survive on a dark and dangerous journey as wary companions.

You have witnessed something not meant to be seen in the shadowy crossroads of a mob-run mountain town called Mantis Falls and now must escape the town. One more witness will join you, and you believe your best chance at survival will come if you can endure the dangers of this night together. However, with each new harm and each fresh wound, your doubts grow. Perhaps too late, you wonder, as you stare into the eyes of your companion, if this person is here to kill you.

Using hidden role cards, Mantis Falls is a “sometimes cooperative” game. The game could have only witnesses, in which case players could only win if they all escaped together. Or there could be an assassin, who carefully maintains the illusion of cooperation until the perfect moment to strike.

Mantis Falls combines hand-building and combos with player communication. Every turn, players discuss tactics, defend choices, and bluff their way through carefully guarded secrets. Assassins and witnesses must walk a fine line between being willing to help their companions and being ready to kill, reading each other as much as the danger.
