Smoke & Mirrors, designed by Chip Beauvais, is a bluffing style micro-game on Kickstarter now. The game is being published by Jason Tagmire (Pretense, Pixel Lincoln) as part of his wallet game series. Each player is a magician who must create better and better tricks than his or her opponent. The game play is similar to games like Liar's Dice or B.S. The first player must use his or her limited hand to play cards that add up to '1' facedown. The next player places cards that add to '2'. Players keep this going unless they skip (once per round) or are called out as the lying magicians they truly are.

Our discussion with Jason focused on his role as the publisher. We explored the types of games he looks for and what kind of input he will have on Chip's game. While talking with Chip, we learned how this game came into being and how the various elements create an unique experience in the micro-game market.

To back this game and other awesome games in the Wallet Game Series, visit Kickstarter and look for Smoke & Mirrors now.
