So, the other day , While wearing nothing more than my boots and a smile... I got into a bar fight with... a party of drunken dwarves... and now barmaids all over town are unable to resist me!

What? Are you calling me a liar?

And so it goes with BRAGGART. A simple, fun and funny card game designed by Kyle Daniel and released through Spiral Galaxy Games. Imagine that your roleplaying characters have had a hard day's adventuring and they all retire to the local tavern for a drink. As the beer flows their tales of derring-do get even more wild and outlandish, until they're competing with each other for best boast. The more outlandish the boast the bigger the score but beware - being called out as a liar will not only reduce your points but also make you look foolish!

So how does this work? Well, before we get into that lets have a look at what you get in the game - a nice box with some excellent artwork which contains 120 full colour illustrated cards and a fold-out instruction manual. It's very small, small enough to go in a coat pocket or in your bag with your gaming manuals. The artwork and the quality of the cards is great and it's all done in the style of an old tavern with foaming tankards and wooden boards. It's a lovely looking game, simple but well presented.

To play the game you'll need 2-6 players (and it is one of those games where more players is better) and about half an hour to an hour. The manual suggests that the person who starts the game is decided in this way - `Argue amongst yourselves to determine who has performed the most impressive feat during their life. That player will start the game...' After this real-life moment of bragging the game mechanics begin. The player starting the game is given a `My Round' card.

This is one of those games that, on pure mechanical value, is unremarkable, but shines because its theme engages the imagination.

The players are (self-proclaimed) mighty heroes, meeting in the ubiquitous fantasy tavern to exchange drunken tales of their epic deeds, trying to one-up each other. The rules are simple - each player on their turn chooses to either draw cards or to assemble cards they have in hand into a boast. Boasts must be made up of at least a heroic deed and a vile foe, and can be further embellished with a location and/or an outcome if you have the cards. The play must also read their boast aloud in a suitably impressive (or sheepish) tone, which is where the fun comes in - the more into character the player gets, the better. The values of each card are added to score each round. Other cards allow players to interfere with the boast and substitute in their own cards ("You liar - you didn't defeat a mighty dragon, that was the village cat!"). Other 'action' cards spice up the gameplay further.

It's one of those games in which you get out what you put in, but its simplicity, humour and visual style do a good job of immersing the group in the theme and making it fun.

...a lot of laughter. The cards are amusing, the game makes players interact. It's perfect as an last game of an evening (as it's short and doesn't require a lot of serious thinking) sending everyone home in good spirits.
I, so far, only tried it with 3 players, but it looks like one of those games, where "the more, the merrier".
Recommended for serious gamer, as well as for families.

Just another card game I thought at first glance...how wrong I was. A bawdy game of boasting later and me and my friends were hooked. This recently picked up the award for Best Card Game at the UK Games Expo 2011 and deservedly so. A home-grown card game that is equally at home around the coffee table with the family, or down ye olde tavern with your mates. This is quite simply the best game I've played in a very long time, and it's playability will run and run :D

Bought this on a whim and have been delighted with it ever since. A massive hit with the kids (7 and 10 at the time), who were into it for 3 weeks solid and still demand plays from time to time.

You get a lot of game in a small box - essentially the cards that make up the game are made up of bunch of components of tall tales from days of yore: scenarios, acts of derring do, evil (or ridiculous) adversaries and heroic outcomes which you take turns to put together in ways that show off your bravery to your gaming partners. They in turn may loudly accuse you of lying and correct your recollections. That is if they are not off using their wiles to steal others cards or slipping over to the bar for another pint.

If this all sounds confusing its not remotely. Its a relatively straightforward card game dressed up in hilarious illustrations, utterly stupid situations/stories, a brilliant sense of humour and enough variety to keep you coming back for more.

Super cheap. Small enough to qualify as a travel game. Fun for all ages. Definitely one for any games collection.

I've only had the chance to play this a few times as friends and family don't find it as interesting as I hoped they would, but it's always been entertaining. It's much better with more players, just having two can get a little dull and make sure there's imaginative players involved who can really ham it up when they're reading out the brags.
