Cult Following is a creative storytelling game where you convince your friends that the eternal truth that you just made up should command devotion, while arguing that the other players’ fanatical ravings are just plain ridiculous. Cultists use three ideas from the deck (e.g. “Monsters under the bed”, “People are food”, and “Bears” ) to create and pitch a ridiculous cult. Recruits ask questions from the deck (e.g. “Why do people wrongly assume your cult is dangerous?”) to find out which cult is right for them. As debate, escalation, and heckling ensue, the players’ stories blend together into a unique and memorable experience. Reviewers have described the game as “fantastic”, “really really good”, “straight up fun”, and “a real laugh and a good time”.
Cult Following works best with 3 - 8 friends ages 14+. Average games last about 15 - 30 minutes.
