It’s time to play Bail or Jail—an exciting game of tag that ends within three minutes!

Bail or Jail is an asymmetrical multiplayer game where you play on either the Human team (three players) or the Monster team (one player).

It expands on the simple rules of tag by allowing players to come up with elaborate strategies through the use of character skills and traits.

A Human’s tactics are not limited to running and hiding. If you are in a pinch, you can activate your handy lantern to stun the Monster and turn the tides in your favor!

A Monster’s true strength lies in its unique abilities. Being able to slip through walls or detect footprints—among other unique Monster skills—allow them to capture Humans when they least expect it!

Will you escape as a Human? Or will you have the last laugh as a Monster?

This is a reimagining of the classic game of tag that players of all ages can enjoy.

Gather your friends and family and get ready to Bail or Jail!
