You are kids running up the wrong way on a down escalator. In your imagination, the bottom steps are falling off into certain doom! You’ll need to manuever around obsticles and other people. Run, shove, jump your way to stay on the longest.
Escalation is a quick, casual, cutthroat, tile-sliding, bag-building game. Play chits to keep your runners on the board the longest to win. Step tiles fall off the edge frequently as the escalator moves. If your last runner is on a tile when it falls, you're out!
