James Ernest games (like, say, Lord of the Fries) tend to be fast, funny, and fun, but often too luck dependent for serious tabletop gamers. Falling is instead fast, funny, fun, and with surprising strategic depth.
The set-up is simple: most of the cards are shuffled, except for the "Ground" cards, which are placed at the bottom of the deck. One person acts as dealer, Blackjack-like, but there's no betting and he's an impartial referee as well. The object of the game is to be the last person who hits the ground. (As the rules say, "It's not much of a goal, but it's all you could think of on the way down.")
