Can you make the case for why you should inherit "someone's" fortune—despite your bizarre backstory, dubious relationship to the deceased, and increasingly silly accusations from the other players?

Someone Has Died is a zany, improvisational storytelling game that places 3 to 6 players in the middle of a will arbitration. Using unique Identity, Relationship, and Backstory cards, each player must create a case for why they should inherit the contents of the will. For example, you might be a talking dog who was the deceased's roller disco partner—but can you explain the fact that you're also a visitor from the future, and why this means you deserve the deceased's collection of bottle caps? The result is a wild ride of persuasion, accusation, and laugh-out-loud fun.

• ACCESSIBLE & EASY TO LEARN: Hilarious card combinations invite even reluctant improvisers and shy storytellers to the table, and the rules are simple enough to explain in ten minutes or less. Looking for a fun, addictive party game for players of any experience level to play again and again? Look no further! With new cards adding twists throughout, no two games are ever the same!
• PERFECT FOR fans of voting games with a persuasive angle like Superfight and Funemployed, storytelling games like Once Upon A Time, and light roleplaying games like Fiasco.
• INCLUDES: 77 Backstory cards, 31 Identity Cards, 27 Relationship cards, 28 Objection cards, instructions
• FOR: 3 to 6 players, ages 13 and up, plays in approximately 25–35 minutes.

Perfect for: Storytellers, theater kids, and improv enthusiasts; anyone looking for a pick-up-and-play, hilarious party game
