  1. Plural of cape

Extensive Definition

Capes is a role-playing game by Tony Lower-Basch, independently published by Muse of Fire Games. It is a superhero-based role-playing game played in scenes, where players choose what character to play before each new scene.
Characters are usually co-owned, but controlled by one player at a time. Losers in conflicts can earn story tokens that can be used to influence the game, so it's sometimes beneficial to play a supervillain that gets beaten to get more story tokens. The game also has a gloating rule that emulates situations where the villain can easily kill the heroes, but won't.
