Top Tale is a casual party game that takes the process of getting to know your fellow human and makes it a fun, often insightful, experience. The game is played by sharing tales in response to cards topics. Responses are then voted on by the other players as a way to encourage people to top each others' tales and open up.
Throughout the game you will share past experiences and tales that will help you get to know other players. In many cases, players develop a deeper respect and understanding of one another.

Top Tale Previews/Reviews
“If you enjoyed “Apples to Apples” and found “Cards Against Humanity” to be too risqué, I think you’ll find “Top Tale” to offer a satisfactory middle ground.”
Dad’s Gaming Addiction
“...I needed to make that point to highlight how vital a group vote can be for a card game and how much more fun Top Tale can be over those style games because of the group voting system.”

What is Top Tale?
Top Tale is a deck of cards where each card has a topic on it. Along with each topic, there's a caption that is meant to spark ideas for responses to the topic, or in many cases the caption is just meant to get a chuckle out of the players to help lighten to mood. Topics are things like, "Encounters with wild animals," where players are asked to share an interesting tale of when they encountered a wild animal. The game has some hidden strategies, where it's not always about what stories are told, but sometimes how entertaining they are when told.

At the end of each round of game play, each player votes for their favorite response without voting on their own, and the person with the most votes wins the round. If there's a tie, then you have a tiebreaker round between those that tied, responding to a new topic card. The game continues until you hit a predetermined number of cards (e.g. a player collects five cards), or you all call it quits. There's a bit more to the rules, but you probably get the general idea.
