A fun little card game
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 November 2019
I played this game with my boyfriend (2 people) and during a board game night (4 people); every time the suspense was high and everyone stressed over the cards, but whenever we made a mistake it ended up in a lot of laughter. The game itself is simple to understand - each player gets the amount of cards that corresponds with the round number. So, round 1, everyone gets 1 card; round 2, everyone gets 2; and so on. Then, everyone has to put their cards down in an order from lowest to highest number - but they can't communicate in any way!
We had a lot of fun, though, and staring contests between the players are simply hilarious, especially if everyone was dealt cards with fairly high numbers and nobody wants to go first. The game can accommodate up to 6 players comfortably, but nothing is in the way if you want to play with even more people - it only requires changing some of the rules.
Overall, if you're looking for a game that is very easy to learn and quick to play, The Mind can easily be that game, if you're willing to sacrifice some of the interaction between the players; it's a great game to close the evening with, and simple enough to understand if you want to play with younger children.
