I finally got Suspense to the table! What a fun, tight little game! We only had time to play three rounds but let me say with 13 cards, this game is still actually a game, and a good one at that.

There's a hidden victory condition (that face down card) every round. Only the dealer knows what it is. Based on what they play (or if they pass/fold) you have to try and guess what it is. The cards are numbered 1-6, with 6 black numbers and 6 white numbers, plus a 13th non-number, non-color card.

Some victory conditions would require you to have the highest white card in play (on the table) or the lowest black card in your hand. 13 cards, 13 victory conditions.

I can see this game getting better the more you play it, and the more familiar you are with the victory conditions.

Also interesting is that this is specifically made for 3 players, with each round lasting no more than 2 minutes. You could play a lot of this in a short amount of time.

As always with Daniel's games, the design is great, everything is easy to read and the quality of card stock from DriveThruCards is good. Certainly one of those cases of getting your money's worth.

Very slick game of deduction and bluffing, reminiscent of Love Letter, but more about figuring out the victory condition than eliminating the other players. Really well put together and rounds race by one the players get the basic flow.

Quite intimidating during the first few plays but once you get the hang of it, is pretty great micro game.

The only thing I didn't like about it is how the colors turned out. It looked a bit pale

This is a great little game. I played it for the first time last night with my parents who are definitely not hobby gamers. I won the first game rather easily but by the second they had figured out what was going on and cleaned my clock.

If you like micro games this is definitely one you should check out. It isn't quiet as straight forward as Love Letter. It may seem pretty random at first but with a few plays you will find the surprising depth of this little gem.
