Ever get the feeling that your friends can read your mind? Could you be telepathic? Your group challenge is to lay the cards in ascending number order. Sounds simple? But can you do it without speaking, without communication, using just the power of your mind?
With over one million copies sold, come on board for this journey and see if you have what it takes to beat ‘The Mind’.
Let’s become one!
What’s in the box?
- 100 number cards
- 12 level cards
- Five life cards
- Three throwing stars cards
How to play:
You start the game with a number of lives equal to the number of players. In a level, each player receives a hand of cards equal to the number of the level: one card in level 1, two cards in level 2 and so on.
Collectively you must play these cards into the centre of the table on a single discard pile in ascending order but you cannot communicate with one another in any way as to which cards you hold. You simply stare into one another’s eyes, and when you feel the time is right, you play your lowest card. If no one holds a card lower than what you played, great, the game continues! If someone did, all players discard face up all cards lower than what you played, and the team loses one life.
Throwing star: each player discards their lowest card face up, giving everyone information and getting you closer to completing the level.
When certain levels are completed, you’ll be rewarded with additional lives or throwing stars.
The game ends in two ways:
- You complete all the levels with at least one life remaining. Congratulations, you have collectively beaten the game and proven you are truly telepathic!
- You lose all your lives. The Mind has won!
For an extra challenge, play The Mind in extreme mode with all played cards going onto the stack face down. You don’t look at the cards played until the end of a level, losing lives at that time for cards played out of order.
