FALLING was the first real time card game from James Ernest. It's a frenetic card game with an average play time of 90 seconds.
One player deals the cards, while the other players fall. There are no turns; everyone is playing at once. Players can play cards on each other, or on themselves. These cards are called "riders," and they change how the dealer will deal. A "Hit" means "Give me two cards." A "Skip" means "Don't give me anything." And so on. Those Skips come in really handy at the end of the deck, when the dealer starts handing out the Ground cards. Catch a Ground card, and you're dead.
