Sideshow Swap!™ is an original, deduction-style social game based on cunning and chance. Players take turns swapping performer cards and playing tickets in an effort to sabotage others, all while trying to discover and hold the top performer before the game ends. Squirrel away money to play the best tickets and tilt the game in your favor. But beware! Other players are trying to ruin your plan as well, so it helps to keep track of where the best performers are as the chaos ensues. Cards are quickly and frequently changing between players, so you have to time your moves just right. The game ends when someone lays their last ticket, and players reveal their performers. The highest one wins!
Filled with whimsical art and humorous old world performers, Sideshow Swap!™ will have your friends trying to figure out how you won, and why they didn’t. Also, it’s jam packed with fantastical underpaid performers like a fat guy stuffed into a cannon, a quite flexible salesman from Cleveland, an about-to-be-lunch lion tamer and the cutest bearded lady this side of the Mississippi.
